Trying to stick to a schedule that’s not working?
Don’t be bound to a sense of how things ‘should’ be done. Really, there are no hard and fast rules right now - and that goes for home-schooling too.
Lesson plans and online classrooms are a great resource, but our children are feeling the weight of incubation too.
If the day has been a struggle in terms of study, maybe share a lesson in a different way.
Explore science through meal planning and cooking. Go off-piste from the school reading list (note: George Orwell’s Animal Farm has been well received, 1984 might not be the uplifting read you or they need right now!).
The likelihood is you're already doing these things, the difference is being mindful of this as part of your children's home learning.
So if you've not completed all of the prescribed assignments or ticked off all of the spellings - GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK. You're doing a great job!
