 Enrichment Activities - Below are some ideas to do during this "school at home" time:

  • Take Virtual Field Trips - Just google and there are many!  Museums, zoos, 7 Wonders of the World, etc

  • Write Letters to friends and family and mail them!  Write letters to seniors in retirement homes since they can't have visitors right now - mail them!

  • Learn a 2nd language - lots of apps available for you to try! Sign Language is a good one to learn!

  • Have students cook with you - teach them about fractions, reading a recipe, following directions, etc.
  • Learn the basics to run a household - budget, wash clothes, take care of the lawn, balance the checkbook, etc.

 

 

Create a Schedule - this will help with everyone's mental health! :)  Your child shouldn't be doing 6-7 hours of academic work.  Break up the learning with a variety of activities to help them focus.

Here is a basic schedule - adapt as fits your family! It will look differently for younger students vs older students.
