During this time of ‘learning from home’ it can be hard to decide what is the right amount of each subject to teach. Nobody will call you out for doing a little too much maths or English during these times. My number 1 rule is to follow the child and allow them to find the subjects that interest them. But of course there are limitations.
My golden rule is that maths and English are always non negotiable. They have to be done each day. When they’re done it’s up to you. But for those struggling with the concept I’ve made you a Timetable with resources attached.
Just click the link HERE to access your copy. Once you’ve had a look around, printed to resources and chosen maths lessons that are suited to your child you should stick it on the fridge and make sure everyone knows where it is. It will look something like this.
Discuss options of what to do when your children don’t know what to do next.
In order for parents to be able to work whilst their children are at home, minimal interruptions and questions about what to do next are important. Parents should design a short list entitled ‘What to do when I don’t know what to do next’ and stick this on the wall.
This can include things such as:
• Read a book
• Listen to a podcast
• Illustrate your work
• Watch a documentary
• Write a story
Have fun with the timetable, stay strong and if you need anything just holler. There are plenty of resources and ideas on my website so feel free to have a look around.
