Learning From Home Can be FUN!

  • Learning from home can be a lot of fun!
  • Make sure you have a comfortable place to work each day.
  • Make a schedule of learning activities and set time limits for each activity.
  • Make goals for the day (I'm going to finish my project today!). Make it happen!
  • Make time to read each day! Always have a book started! Set a timer to read for at least 30 minutes a day!
  • I can't wait to hear all the things you learned on your own! If you can't wait, I created a Google Slide Presentation -Click on this link - to add a new slide (one per person please) and tell us what's new or what you have been doing to continue your learning/education while we are away from one another.

P.S. Don't forget to wash your hands! Watch this video for inspiration!
