Tips for Successful At-Home Learning

At-home learning will look different than a typical school day. The amount of time your child should be expected to engage in learning activities will vary by age and grade level. The expectations below are guidelines. If your child is not able to complete at-home learning assignments within the time periods recommended below, contact your child's teacher to discuss a modified assignment load. 

  • Make sure your child has a quiet place to work (ideally a desk or table) and the school supplies they need. Try to remove distractions like the television or other technology not needed for learning. 
  • Your child may benefit from focusing on a limited number of subjects each day. For example, If they are working at home on Wednesday and Friday, they may want to work on science and math on Mondays and Social Studies and English Language Arts on Friday.
  • As we get further into the semester, your child's schedule might adjust to meet changing needs. It's always a great idea to maintain open communication with your child's teacher.
