Native Edge Distance Learning Advice
Some tips for supporting your kids learning while at home!
1. Plan the day with your child
It’s good to brainstorm with your child about their day ahead.
Give them options. Ask them what they feel about doing tasks in certain ways. Give them time to adjust to the schedule and limit activities to age-appropriate timeframes.
2. Involve the family
Distance Learning involves integrating your child’s educational schedule with your family’s routing.
Have a chat with your family and know what their expectations are with the distance learning setup and what is expected of them.
3. Keep in touch with teachers
Get to know your child’s teachers on social media. Reach out to them and connect with them. Don’t hesitate to ask for advice.
Teachers can also give you tips on how to effectively facilitate your kids’ learning. They can also get you in touch with other parents.
4. Use free resources
The school will provide the lessons but you can also make use of other resources like worksheets available online to support or expand it. View our Resources!
5. Take breaks
It’s a simple advice – and you can’t underestimate the power of breaks.
Add it to your schedule and make it fun – or be spontaneous and flexible and take it when you can.
6. Be flexible
Distance Learning is new and can be difficult and frustrating.
Facilitate your child’s study schedule, but be flexible to change it up based on your child’s learning tendencies and emotional state at the time.
