What I'm Doing During This Home School Situation


Here is what I’ve been doing with my kiddo during this super weird home schooling situation. She's 6 and sneezed directly into my coffee yesterday, I recommend travel mugs. 

I use the things she can self-direct with while I’m doing work, however, she seems to manage (at most) 20-30 minutes alone with an app, tv show, or website.


Don't beat yourself up if you need to put on Paw Patrol so you can attend a virtual meeting or focus on something for your job. Shit's real weird right now, there are no rules, so do what you can manage.


#1 Maintain a schedule

We get up at the same time we always have and do our usual morning routine:
  • Wash face
  • Brush teeth
  • Brush hair
  • Make beds
  • Get dressed
  • Breakfast, etc


#2 Alternate between online resources and physical learning

First, we check in with her teacher for attendance each morning
  • Physical
    • One language art worksheet from school
    • One math worksheet from school
    • One game worksheet from school
    • Practice letter and number writing
    • Reading books
    • Sight word flash cards
    • Art/Crafts
    • Puzzles
    • Leap Pad Books


#3 Other Stuff

It totally was a trap
 #4 Nighttime
  • We do our same exact nighttime routine as it normally would be done.
  • I leave time to wipe down the surfaces and spray things with Lysol
  • Then I try to read or watch or something to clear my head
  • I might even get to talk to my husband!
