Helping Your Child With Virtual Learning

As families, it can be difficult to support our children with online instruction since most of us have not been taught through a computer screen. Here are some tips:

  • Have a routine. Keep bedtimes, regular school year rules for play on digital devices, and treat routines for virtual learning the same as in-person school as much as possible.
  • Choose a good place to learn. Sometimes our homes are busy places. If there is not a quiet place for your child to learn online, consider getting headphones for them to block out the distractions of daily life at home that they do not normally see when they are on campus for school.
  • Help students own their learning. Help your child with logging on issues, but it is okay for them to struggle with the academic work. Mistakes help students learn! Do not help too much.
  • Stay connected. Teachers will be communicating through Class Dojo and email. If families need support, please reach out to the teacher or principal with questions.
