Home School Tips – level 2

14-05-2020 07:00

Many schools around the world closed because of the coronavirus. Parents must be a substitute teacher, and they learn with their children at home. It is not an easy task.

Some parents expect that their children will work as hard as they do in school. However, parents need to understand that every child is different and works at different speeds. It is important to be kind and thoughtful.

It does not have to be boring to learn. It can be fun, too. When parents teach their children math, they do not need to sit at the table and work with a book. Children can practice math during common activities such as baking or dining.
