Who could imagine this scenario just a few weeks ago?
Whole countries closing down? Universities transferring all learning to distance learning. Even our beloved Disney and Universal have shut down.
Well, we are here. We know that several of our readers are currently experiencing school shut downs. Others are waiting to hear of what will be of their schools when they return from spring break.
In recent weeks, the majority of schools have been working on plans and training for this exact moment. As teachers have been preparing, they have continued with teaching in the classroom. Often pulling 12-15 hour work weeks to make sure their students can continue with the learning continuum now and in the future.
Here are few tips for your family during this time:
Before your schools are closed.....
My school is already closed....
Moving forward remember patience is key, this is temporary, and just a current disruption. Take advantage of the time at home to take a step back in time and spend time teaching your children some basic skills that are a part of life's curriculum: cooking, sewing, cleaning, etc... Try to find the positive and keep the vibe at home positive.
