  • Create a daily routine for checking teacher websites including Edmodo
  • Make sure to take scheduled breaks from studying (and staring at electronic screens) and to eat healthy snacks
  • Make sure to take movement breaks from studying and sitting in front of a screen (e.g., do some stretches, jumping jacks, walk the dog while practicing social distancing, etc.)
