7 tips from teachers on Covid 19 home learning and coping while schools are closed
Teachers’ 7 tips for your wellbeing and learning during coronavirus:
Be kind to yourself – coronavirus is not a normal situation and it’s ok not to feel ok about it all.
For your own well-being and if you are able to connect online, try to keep in touch with your friends virtually.
Try to keep to a routine, eat healthily and have set times to have a go at your school work. When you’re doing school work, try working for 25 minutes then having a 5 minute break – it’s more productive.
If you can, find a set place in your home to do school work – somewhere quiet where you can give yourself some space.
Don’t try to do too much work – remember learning from home is not the same as being at school.
If you have questions about the work set by teachers, follow your school’s guidelines about home working. This may be to contact them. Remember, even if they don’t see you every day, they are still thinking of you and are there for you as best they can be.
Take time away from social media. If you have a phone, put it in another room, especially if you’re trying to do school work – it will help you concentrate.
