In the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, the possibility of school closures was something that seemed far out and even extreme. Now, with many school systems abruptly closing for the year, parents are scrambling to create some type of schedule to promote the normalcy kids need to feel secure.
Kids thrive on routines. The consistency not only provides them a sense of security, but allows them to feel confident with time management. And as studies show, creating an established routine assists in developing important habits and life skills.
It’s impossible to adhere strictly to a schedule in this era of social distancing and some days you have to wing it! This is uncharted territory for all of us. No-one expects a set schedule to be followed meticulously during this time. Keep expectations within reason.
That being said, we can do our best to give kids a daily routine as a guideline to follow. Enter: the School Closure Schedule and Activity Planner that we feel every parent could use right now, available for download below!
