Creating Successful Learning Routines at HomeApr 28, 2020
It's that time of the year again when kids are returning to the classroom after their 2 week Easter break.... hang on a minute! No they're not!
If you're a parent of a child aged between 5 and 18, chances are that you've been facilitating remote learning at home towards the end of term one and are about to continue in this way for the next few weeks.
While some parents have loved this challenge, many have struggled with this transition too. Never in our wildest dreams could we imagine our children learning in this way, for so long.
As an educator AND parent myself, I am seeing both sides of these crazy times. When I'm on site at school I'm teaching and when I'm working remotely from home, I'm supporting my students and families, as well as teaching my own daughter by facilitating her remote learning timetable.
In this episode, I chat with fellow educator Tiffany from Inspire Learn Teach. We break down the different ways that you as a parent can set yourself and your children up for a successful day of learning from home. There are no two children who are the same, or learn the same and in this episode we acknowledge this along with the varying routines and systems that may be helpful to support our little learners during this time (while keeping you sane too).
