Remote learning has taken center stage with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the United States. Now, early childhood educators have to collaborate with families more than ever to create play-based, child-centered learning. Here's how parents can support educators and help create an interactive, constructive learning environment for their own children.
Create a Productive Learning Space
Help your child stay motivated and focused by setting up their own learning space. This doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, a small table or even a designated spot at the kitchen table will do—just make sure that distractions and clutter are at a minimum. Stock their learning area with common school and art supplies and even encourage them to decorate it!
Having a designated learning area can help separate your child’s regular home time from school time. Make it clear that when they're in their learning space, it's time to focus on their school activities.
