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!
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.
