Yes! I can do it!
Tips for successfully homeschooling your preschooler during school closures
During these unprecedented times, it’s important to keep kids engaged, excited to learn and have a sense of community so they feel safe. Here are a few tips to implement at home to make your homeschooling experience enjoyable and fun for everyone.
- Focused learning periods with your child (3-5 year olds) should be limited to periods of 10-15 minutes followed by downtime activities such as; snack, walking, stretching, breathing exercises, rest time, clean up time, playing outdoors and playtime.
- Playing soothing background music such as nature or classical music provides a unique sensory integration of the body and mind, which is crucial in learning readiness in reading, writing and math. Studies have shown that the use of classical music during writing or working on projects increases attention and concentration among children.
- Create a fun workspace for your child filled with paper, crayons, markers and pencils for them to be creative and have a place to do their worksheets.
