Coronavirus Social Distancing Home School Schedule
During these scary and uncertain times, establishing routines can be a source of comfort and predictability – especially for our children.
I created the three schedules, seen just below, to give my family and myself a sense of security and order.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to use them – please click on the link or image below to download.
Please know these schedules are NOT perfect…we’ll probably make tweaks as we go. After all, that’s what happens in life – routines and schedules change and bend.
Click this link or the images below and you’ll find three different schedules:
- The first schedule is a general one for our entire family but specifically tailored to the needs of our 7.5 year old daughter. I combined a schedule that I saw on twitter with the assigned homework program given by my daughter’s school district (Ramsey Public Schools). Thus, 8 different choice boards (Math, Reading, Social Studies/Science, Word Study, Writing, Art, Music, PE) have been combined into one daily routine calendar. My daughter’s school did a wonderful job pulling together a variety of fun learning activities!
- The second schedule follows the same order as the first but was tailored to the needs of my 2.5 year old.
- The third is blank – feel free to write in anything that works for you and your family!
These routines do not have to be set in stone but having a framework to follow may help you get through the day!
- Even though we will be quarantined, we are all planning to get dressed to start the day. This means – no pajamas. I’m hoping we’re able to do this on a consistent basis as I think it will give us a sense of purpose.
- Although my daughter’s school has provided many engaging learning activities, I may supplement or augment with additional learning tasks and social emotional goals, such as:
- Learn to draw via youtube channel – Art for Kids Hub
- Learn how to become an emotion scientist (or more about social emotional development)
- My daughter LOVES Junie B. Jones so I’ll probably download some book companions from Teachers Pay Teachers
- Possibly learn how to play a musical instrument (this really depends on the length of the quarantine and how well homeschooling is going!)
- If we REALLY need to get out of the house and have no where to go, we’ll go for a ride and cruise with the windows down!
- We will also regularly send snail mail to my husbands’ parents who are quarantined in PA.
I hope it helps. Feel free to share these with anyone you like!
I’m continuing to pray that we all remain safe and healthy!
Wishing you all the very best – we are all in this together!!
