Week #1 Thinking about a daily schedule?
Keep it Simple. Keep it Flexible.
When our kids’ school schedules get rocked, it can be tough for families to know what to do. Every family has to find what works best for them! Below are a few tips I’ve gathered from education writers, families, and friends.
*Work together to build a schedule or a short list of ‘learning choices’… kids, adults, grandparents. Make it fun!
*Schedules can be personalized; think about: meals/snacks, fitness time, play, service time, independent reading, outside time, math, choice learning time, dance parties….!
Some families are trying out a schedule for half of each day or a few hours of the day.
*If using resources provided by your student’s teacher, decide together when/how to schedule school learning. Some kids need a softer morning and some are ready to go at 7:00 AM!
*Celebrate! Share a success from the day.
Most importantly, be kind to yourselves and don’t expect a perfect schedule or day. None of us have experienced this kind of situation before, but an effort now is better than perfect.
