Last week, I wrote about how I was going bananas, with being the at-home teacher, for e-learning with Finn.
Finn’s teachers have provided weeks worth of material, and each day, he has a series of different math, reading, and spelling courses, along with other topics.
One of the activities required him to use an app on the tablet and answer math equations while being timed. If he doesn’t answer the equation within a specific time limit, he gets the answer wrong.
That particular program wasn’t responding, kept freezing, and logging him off. Then he would have to log back in and would need to start over. This happened to him a couple of times and he became frustrated and cried.
That was one of the experiences that I had during my first week of e-learning with Finn.
They all let me know that I could contact them, if I had any questions. This was so wonderful.
-Virtual field trips!
-“Brain Break” activities. Try to work for about 20-25 minutes at a time and give your kid some breaks in between. A great site to use, is GoNoodle.com. You can use the “family” site. Also there is a cute dice game.
-Brookfield Zoo has some cool stuff too, right now on their site. Many zoos have live cams for their animals.
-Cincinnati Zoo live streams (and makes available for later) an animal a day with questions, etc.
-The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum does a daily lesson too.
Each of them added so many thoughts. Attached is some activity ideas and listed below, are some links with activities as well:
Thanks Val, Kim, and Marti. I really appreciate it.
