Tip Tuesday
The Parent Institute shares four tips on how to create effective learning environments at home.
  • Create a flexible learning space. A child may like to sit at the kitchen table to do math problems but prefer to sit on the couch to read. Giving kids a choice of where to complete work can result in greater learning.
  • Check in with your children throughout the day to find out how they are feeling.
  • Schedule frequent breaks. Students need breaks every 20-30 minutes to maintain focus and energy.
  • Incorporate exercise and play into the day. Physical activity has been shown to improve children’s memory, attention, mood and cognitive function. Unstructured play allows kids to practice social-emotional skills and creative problem-solving.
