Homeschooling or Virtual School is hard for those of us new to it. While working, it can be a true challenge for the mind and patience.
Many of us are not used to having our children all day every day. However we have been confronted with choices we must make. In person school is as hard of a choice as Virtual, parent led.
Holy Moly, I realize what all the teachers are doing and am so grateful for their input and help.
Are you transitioning to in-home schooling? So far I have some observations that may help. From setting up a drive file for each class to submitting your precious students' work------to zoom meetings......let's get through this together.

Having two children in school is a challenge. Keeping my sanity is as much of a challenge. Offer many opportunities for grace and listening. Explain again each topic. Find the patience needed for your children's skillsets. Do Not allow yourself to get trapped in a daily plus or minus. Know that each day is progress and enjoy and reward those days that really fly high in achievement.
Here we were working on an art project "believe it or not". It may be late, but we are carrying the lessons from class into our evening. Find a way to make it all mesh together and fun. My son wanted to cook, so cook he did.
Can't cook a meal for art? Have them grab some pastel chalks and make a few drawings. There are so many ways to bring their class assignments into the home environment.
What are the shortcuts for schooling you have learned? Share them with me!
