Hi friends, I’m Gretchen L., and I’ve been an online instructor for over ten years. Let me help guide you through this transition, so your students get the most out of their time over the coming weeks.

My advice includes best practices I’ve learned over years of teaching and consulting. I want to help your child(ren) continue to make academic progress, as I help my own kids go through this transition.

Here’s a quick look at my experience:

Today’s Tip! Make a Schedule!

OK, that seems simple enough, I’ll just cruise through Pinterest and grab one like the ones below, right?

Not so fast!

While the above schedules are great and all, please take a moment to create a schedule that will work in your own home. 

Making a schedule that works for your family is going to take a bit of time, but trust me, this is a FIRST STEP you’re NOT going to want to miss. The sooner you get your children used to a schedule, the better prepared to learn they will be.

  • Make sure you have the technology your kids will need to complete their meetings and online/offline tasks.
  • Make sure your kids are able to connect in real time with their teachers. You don’t want them to miss the opportunity to have some semblance of normalcy through this process.
  • Understand that you’re going to need to adjust your schedule; it’s not going to be perfect on the first round.
  • Don’t overload your kiddos; they are going through some major stuff too!
  • Let your kids have a say in the schedule. It will be easier to get some buy in, if they are the ones who came up with the idea!

So, there you have it. Now all you need to do is to write it down some where. You can get as fancy as you like for this part. I mean, if color coordination is your thing, go for it. Then post it in a space where the family can hold each other accountable. 🙂

Good luck with your transitions my friends. Please reach out in the comments below, if you have any questions! ~ Gretchen
