During Virtual school the teacher gives the kids a break for recess. It would really be great to get the kids off the screens. If you can’t send them outside, set up the kitchen table for Ping Pong with a little net.
If your child is learning from home they may not have to get up as early. The problem with this is they also may want to go to sleep later at night. When school starts up again that may end up being a big point of contention. No matter what, your kids need plenty of sleep and some adjustment time before school starts each morning. If they have a routine such as making their bed, washing their faces and getting dressed before the school day starts it gives them some mindless to-dos that will help their brains acclimate to the day ahead.
No matter how awake they seem you should probably check in once and a while to make sure they did not fall back to sleep between classes. My son told me that he “was just listening to the keyboard humming”.
It might not be a bad idea to check in on your student every once in a while.
As if the first week of school was not difficult enough try to explain to your kids why they shouldn’t attend virtual school in their pajamas.
