Distance learning and scheduling..5 steps
First: the need for parents to be aware
Although distance learning is a new skill that is good for children to learn, it does not replace the school experience because of the quality of academic education, in addition to the experience that school provides as a social environment that enriches the student’s personality and build his social skills and communication skills with the community.
The solution: eat breakfast at 7 o’clock in the morning, then change into your pajamas, and at exactly eight o’clock the study begins and the books are opened.
Second: planning and setting priorities
Be realistic when homeschooling your children, you are not a professional teacher, you need to prioritize by focusing on core subjects like maths, and make sure that trying to conquer the whole curriculum will make you and your child nervous
The solution: Pay attention to the schedule of distance learning hours, after which the child rests for an hour to eat a simple meal, then complete the study and revision..for two hours until he eats lunch
Third: keep the process open
Parents should involve their children in building a homeschool by explaining the reasons for learning from home, setting a name for the homeschool, specifying teaching methods, whether through the blackboard or tablet devices, and involving them when choosing the subjects they want to study.
Fourth: Be an exemplary teacher
Put yourself in the place of your child and imagine that he looks at you as a teacher, not as a father. This gives the homeschooling process a kind of seriousness, and helps your children make better decisions. Make sure that the home classroom gives your children more opportunity to exchange roles, understanding and control compared to the school classroom, which is often overcrowded. .
Fifth: Give them a daily “respite”.
Maybe in time you will discover that teaching is a stressful task, so you should give them a space once or twice a day to eat fruits and vegetables from a specific place in the house that serves as a canteen, and you should also assign a class for practice.
