Engaging Homeschooling Strategies
Another confusing myth is thinking you have to teach the full school day, or that your child needs to be working on an educational task or activity all day long. This is not true and this will burn both you and your child out really fast. Establishing a consistent schedule, including the assignments and tasks to be completed is essential.
Including your child and creating this schedule will create buy-in. Include family activities like board games, completing puzzles, or card games. Offer opportunities to celebrate success or the completion of milestones. Take baby steps. Remember, the goal is continuity and learning, not busy work, or doing an activity in every subject every day.
Lastly, let's address calmness. While there may not be an immediate end date in sight, we must adopt a level of mindfulness as we go through with this pandemic. Take time out for fun, fitness, and relaxation, family walks, and exercise, meditation, and yoga.
These activities help calm our brains and bring our present to the now. Concentrate on breathing and how your body and children respond to calmness. Relieve the stress and anxiety caused by this global pandemic with guided meditation or mindfulness activities.
Take back your sanity and establish your new normalcy. Make sure your family schedule also includes physical fitness, fun, relaxation, and definitely rests in addition to the educational activities. It is doable and I implore you, embrace your affirmation of parent educator and establish your new normalcy. You got this. I wish you the best. Thank you.
