Home-schooling Tips During Lockdown .x

Hello readers ,

Home schooling children can be daunting one day and enjoyable the next. Your children may not want to sit and learn with you but it is important not to throw the towel in but to encourage your children to carry on. Its ok to be leaniant and not too strict. Ensure to engage your child in lots of different activities and exciting experiments. Make learning fun but educarional. You can always check your childs school website for home learning ideas and ideas on what to focus on. Here are some tips to help you and give you some advice on home-schooling.

1. Base activities around on your child's interests. Use your childs toys during teaching time. For example if you are teaching your child maths use their favourites toys and base the questions on the toys. Ask your child to half the toys equally between 2 people , 4 people etc. Ask your child to put them in size order from smallest to biggest. By doing this the chances are your child will stay more engaged rather than having written questions.

2. Draw up a timetable. It is important to include free play and fun time when sticking to a time table. Having free play will let your child use their imagination to be able to do what they want preventing boredom and tantrums. Having a time table allows your child to get into a routine and used to learning from home (us parents and carers too). Having a time frame to stick to will level out time spent teaching specific subjects. Once you have finished , allow your child to colour in the time table after each lesson.

3. Its ok to have a day off. Ask your child what they want to do for the day and let them do it. Having a fun family day is brilliant for you and your childs mental health. It will give you time to relax and have a good time with your family.

4. Give lots of praise. All children love and need praise when they try their best. Stopping going to school can cause confusion for children. Everytime your child does something good praise them , praise then when they get things right. If you set a test for your child give them a target to reach and ask what reward they would like, encouraging them to practice through the week.

5. Educational games. From bingo to scrabble , from guess who to sining games are a fun way to get children listening , doing and learning. All children love to play games and us adults secretly do too. Make games fun and engaging but make them for the level of your childs ability. Instead of sitting at a table learning from paper , games can develop listening skills, motor skills , emotional and physical skills without realising you are doing it. Games are a great family to sit together and have fun whilst learning!

I hope yoy enjoy youe time together. Happy teaching.

Love Mamma x
