Other suggestions to help get through these times

Structure is necessary: Create a simple calendar and block out 30-minute chunks of time for school tasks and fun activities throughout the day. Consider having more fun stuff than schoolwork during this time!

Start early but not too early: It is good to get up and going early each day! However, don't start too early. Be sure to have a healthy breakfast and ease into your day.

Use a timer: It will keep you and your children on the schedule you have created. You don't want to cut any fun time short!

Less is more! Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be an all-star teacher/parent! It will just add stress to you and your children. Take this very unique to play, read, make bread or play dough, sing, create art. I think we will all miss this time once the virus has come and gone and we are all back to our crazy lives.
