How are our families doing with homeschooling efforts? As the resolve to keep up with school curriculum wanes, this is an ideal time to help your children engage in some self-directed learning or passion projects. Allowing your child some time each day to explore activities and hobbies that they are enthusiastic about will help cultivate curiosity and keep learning fun for everyone. This is part of the reason camp is so fun: because campers get to choose which activities they want to participate in!
Of course, student directed learning doesn’t work with every child or in every situation, so you may need to help motivate and support your child with their more challenging subject areas. Here are a few resources to help with academic support https://www.khanacademy.org/ and https://www.abcmouse.com/. New York Times has also compiled a great list of resources: https://www.nytimes.com/…/pare…/home-school-coronavirus.html.
