Helping your kids focus during distance learning.
 
Now that we are learning at home, parents have the task of supporting students in focusing and connecting to their learning. 
  1. Breaks: breaks are important for the students, especially the younger they are.
    1. Movement breaks, a quick stretch and twist of the body, some jumping jacks, just stand up a couple times, cross body stretches to reconnect the brain
    2. Restroom breaks
    3. Snack break
  2. Rest: make sure students get enough sleep at night 8-10 hours
  3. Breakfast: a good breakfast with protein helps us focus and keeps our mind alert
  4. Play: make sure the student gets time to play and move around during the day
  5. Routine: Make a consistent routine
    1. Get up at the same time, go to bed at the same time
    2. Set up a learning area where they go to to do their learning
    3. Have materials ready to go for the day
