UPDATE #5 -Educational Resources to Assist While You Are Home – Amanda Wade, M.Ed.

Posted by Amanda Wade on

Hello, Church Family. The following are some resources and info to assist as many of you are home with your kids maybe wondering what to do in terms of schooling. 

Here are a few tips to help you get started with your at home learning plan:

  1. Create a schedule (children strive in an environment that has consistency and routine)
  2. Set up a work space for your child to work (free of distractions)
  3. Set clear expectations for what you want completed each day (decide what assignments should be completed each day)
  4. Make it fun! (Everything doesn't have to be paper and pencil, learning can happen from everyday items in your house. Use beans, snacks, fruit, cereal, etc to change things up when learning math, reading, science, etc)
  5. Enjoy the time to learn together (For many of us we will be learning right alongside our children, take this time to enjoy the opportunity to teach and learn with your child.)
  6. Smile!! Stay encouraged parents, we are all in this together!

Remember each school district has provided resources to help you with engaging lessons for your children to complete.  If it has not already been sent out, it is coming.  If your children attends Garland ISD grades PreK-12, the at home learning website has launch this week.  Here is the link: https://sites.google.com/garlandisd.net/gisd-distance-learning
