Suggestions to you for successful online learning:
1. Have a Routine
Disruptions in routines can be stressful. A regular schedule will help to maintain a sense of normalcy and stability.
- Have a regular bedtime, wake-up and mealtimes
- getting dressed and ready for school even though you are at home
- a set time for learning
- set times for breaks
- daily physical activity
- daily communication with friends and family.
- Space to WorkSetting up home learning space to work can help you focus. If possible, the space should include:
- a quiet atmosphere
- good lighting
- a desk or table at a comfortable height for your child
- a storage basket or bin to keep supplies (paper, pens, pencils, markers, books, etc.)
- access to a computer/tablet or other smart device if possible.
- Remember to be:
- Patient with yourself. This is a new experience for everyone, and it will require some adjustment time. The most important thing is that you know you are keeping yourself safe, you have support and there are people that care a lot about you..
- Try to practice good work habits and be proud of what you accomplish.
- Take breaks when you need to. If you become frustrated or tired it is okay to step away and come back to the work later.
- Keep up with your friends and family. Keep in touch. Know that everyone is in the same reality and care about each other.
