Virtual learning is hard! Not only are my kids struggling, but I’m struggling as well. Trying to get them into the mode of schoolwork where there are mass amounts of distractions is definitely a battle.
I treat each day as if it was a normal school day because… it is! My kids go to bed at their normal bedtime (for us that’s 8:30 pm) and wake up at 6:45 am to start their morning routine.
Like you would when your kids went to school, prepare them lunch in the morning and put it into the fridge for later. Keep them on a lunch block for an hour where they grab their lunch from the fridge and can go play outside afterward.
I know this can be a tricky one since the living space may not make that possible. No matter where your child works, make sure it isn’t on their bed. Give them a hard surface to work from like the dining table or another table/desk that’s accessible.
