Learning at Home: Setting students up for success

Posted April 24, 2020

While learning at home, students will take part in a variety of activities. We hope that these activities will not only be engaging for students but will also build some structure into their days at home.

To support families, the Upper Grand District School Board has put together some helpful tips for parents/guardians to set their child up for success.

The board has developed a webpage called “Supporting Online Learning” that offers examples of routines and schedules that families can implement into their daily routine. We have also put together ideas to help families build in some breaks to help reduce the stress or frustration that students may be experiencing.

Occasionally, even with breaks students can continue to experience frustration. Here we offer 10 Helpful Hints for dealing with behaviours that will support you and your child. We also recommend that parents visit our Mental Health Resources webpage, which offers strategies and coping skills for parents and kids.
