8 Tips to Help Kids During Virtual Learning Story

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’ve been slowly learning ways to get my kids a little more comfortable with this new normal and would love to share with you some of the things that have been working for us. I hope some of these tips can help you out as well!

Keep up with a routine 

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.

Make lunch ahead of time

Give them a space of their own to work

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.

I don’t care how old your child is, keeping supplies somewhere organized and together can help! I know with virtual learning, a lot is done on the computer, but many teachers are having kids do the work on notebooks and then plugging in the answers.

Have a pencil box full of supplies

Invest in some headphone

They don’t have to be expensive at all, but having a decent set of headphones can help keep the outside noise reduced and help your child to focus more on the lessons and meetings they’re having with their teacher.
