Got an Answer?
I know people that are doing the exact school routine. Wake up early and pretty much do the 9-3 with the relevant breaks in between. I definitely couldn’t do that. We start about 10 ish for about 3hrs. Probably get judged but it works for us and keeps us all sane.
So not pushing them to do hours on end of school work, they must complete some before they are allowed to play games but other wise if they want to cook and do art and let themselves be happy and enjoy some isolation time then I think for now that's what is important, they want to be close and comforted and know that everything is going to be ok
Our active/social little humans are stuck in a house and we are all they have, they are watching our every move to learn how we get through this experience, at least they can look back on time spent together, engaging in new conversations, learning life skills
My 4 ask daily (even over the weekend) to do school work and I reward them for each task they complete, no pressure
Depends on how much you value your child’s education. Education does not mean sitting down and working from a book. I would be aiming for 4 hours a day plus some extra activities such as baking, fun fitness circuit and painting. Make it fun, you can do this!!!
I am a homeschooler with my eldest child. We do most of our formal learning in the morning. It only takes a few hours.
My kids are in year 10 and year 7, we are currently on school holidays so we haven't really done the home schooling thing yet. We are just going to wait and see and not spend the holidays stressing out about it (although my eldest does have 2 assignments that he needs to start). I am sure that my kids will get through the work quicker at home than school, so I think as long as they are getting their work completed I won't be to strict with times.
You know what, just reading to your child or getting them to silent read is so beneficial to their learning. Reading doesn’t just have to be novels it can be, flyers, recipes, instruction manuals and anything else with words.
My kids are yrs 7 and 10. They do all work set for them by their teachers. Sometimes it takes 4 hours, sometimes 2.
We have been home for 2 weeks and have this week to go before holidays start. My kids are Year 5 and 9. Their schools have done a fantastic job of loading content online. The log in at 9 and work through what they have been given for the day. Most days they are done by 1-1:30. There have been a few days that ran later but they aren’t the norm.
My kids are in year 10 and year 7 so they are definitely working from 9-3 so they don't fall behind and I still worry for them
