General Tips for  Distance Learning:
  • Keep a daily routine for getting up, eating, and going to bed that is similar to your normal school day
  • Create a study place that will not be distracting
  • Create a daily study schedule (e.g., 8:00-9:00 ELA, 9:10-10:10 math, 10:20- 11:10 science, etc.)
  • 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.)
  • Stay positive, have fun, and always ask for help!
