Resources

What resources are available to your child in a traditional classroom? Can you replicate these in a remote learning environment? What resources do you have available at home that your child doesn't have access to in a traditional classroom? These resources could serve as enrichment for your child.

To the greatest extent possible, assemble resources for your children beyond the computer screen: books, magazines, paints, yoga mats, and more!

Tips

  • Get your child's input! What materials would they like to use? Work on organizing the space together. This way if you are working from home, your child can independently access materials as they need them.

  • Create a password tracker. If you are sharing devices among family members, you may need to sign into and out of digital learning tools. A list of websites and passwords for each family member will reduce confusion and frustration as each person tries to stay organized digitally.


Scheduling Time

Use this resource to support your child as he/she creates a daily schedule. Adults and older siblings can help younger children create a schedule.

2nd Grade - High School Schedule

Older students can, and should, schedule their days with start and end times for each activity. In addition to the academic items assigned by their teachers, students should also schedule downtime and moments for reflection.

Limited Resource Sign-up

Do your kids have to share the computer? A particular workspace? Other limited resources? Use a sign-up sheet. Have them commit to the time they want to use it in the morning and then that's it for the day. No fighting!
