What to do at Home

As we navigate this new reality of distance learning, we want to remind you that daily lessons from your child’s teacher will not be fully ready until after spring break. In the meantime, we want to pass along resources to help you and your family create a structure for your days and share a few ideas for continuing work on reading, math, and inquiry-based learning at home!

 

One thing that really helps kids (and adults!) in times of uncertainty is to maintain structure. There are many sample schedules online, but here’s one example that might be a useful starting point as you begin to think about how to structure your child’s days over the coming weeks:
