We wanted to give you some helpful tips to support you during this time period.
Schoolwork location: Try to find a quiet space in your home with a writing surface: for example, a table and a comfortable chair (not too comfortable) or a desk. Make sure your supplies for learning are with you like a pencil, paper, laptop, etc.
Free from distractions: Try to avoid doing work in front of the TV, while on your cell phone, or playing video games.
Set time for work: You should work for an uninterrupted time. Set a timer for work. The amount of time spent working uninterrupted will depend on the student. It should be a minimum of ten minutes, but could be as long as 60 minutes.
Take breaks: You can take short breaks of 5 minutes if you have been working steadily. Setting a timer helps you to stay on track until you have finished your work. Be sure to take an outdoor, physical activity break at least once a day. You need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Stay organized: Do schoolwork every e-learning day. Do not let your work pile up. Do it in smaller chunks if it seems to be overwhelming.
Reach out for help: You can contact your teachers or your counselors via Schoology. Please ask for help when you need it. That is what we are here for!
