3. HOW CAN I HELP MY CHILD SUCCEED?

Helping your child succeed with At-Home Learning now can set them up for academic success later- no matter the format. Here are 3 simple things you can do to help your child succeed in an At-Home Learning environment.

  • Encourage kids to focus by designating an area or desk where they do their work. Make sure breaks are taken away from this area and they do not have access to additional devices at their desk.

  • Motivate your child by acknowledging what they have done well, allowing freedom to plan some of their work day and support their connection to their classmates.

  • Stick to a consistent sleep schedule, healthy eating habits and encourage exercise and time outdoors.
