The sudden closure of the best CBSE schools in Hyderabad because of the COVID pandemic has taken families by surprise. Kids all over the world are now being asked to study from home, through online classes, via video calls, computer presentations, and assignments sent through emails and whatsapp.

For many, this is a new experience. Research suggests that parental participation has a greater impact on children’s academic achievement than others. It’s not easy to convert homes into classrooms, but there are a few things you can do to get ready.

1. Create a learning space for your child.

Ambience a.k.a. the surrounding environment is a crucial key in setting up the mood for almost anything. So when it comes to the most important thing for your kid, creating a comfortable zone for her/him is essential.

You should ensure that the study place is-

  • Neat and clean
  • Has proper ventilation and sunlight
  • Is away from outside noises
  • Is a room or corner which doesn’t involve a lot of movement by other family members or pets
  • Has enough space to keep books and stationary

2. Make a schedule and stick to it

With no hurry of catching the bus, and no ringing school bells to denote period change, kids can often slide into a monotonous and sloppy zone, where they might feel like sleeping in. Try to build as much structure and consistency as possible, setting times for meals, schoolwork and other activities. Take a look at your family’s schedule and figure out the best times for learning.

Here are a few tips:

  • Help them in kick starting their day early morning.
  • Allow for flexibility in the schedule. Give children a break if they are frustrated, anxious or very distracted.

3. Provide positive feedback

Children crave praises and somewhere their daily dose of encouragement by teachers and peers has subdued massively. Receiving validation helps in the growth and seeds in motivation.  You can build a rewarding system which will keep the kid at their best behaviour. Things like-

  •  ticking their work
  •  giving stars at the end
  • giving small treats for a good academic performance
  • Allowing extra playtime

4. Reach out to your child’s teacher

Having a frequent dialogue with the teacher is very important for keeping a track of your child. Teachers can help with more than we really think. And they are usually willing to help. Be it a technical error, or curriculum doubts, teachers should always be your go to person for advice.

5. Brain breaks for online learning

Higher levels of screen time are associated with a variety of health harms, such as obesity and depression. This is an unfortunate reality which has dawned upon the kids, and as much as it is important for them to attend all lectures, it may be hard for some kids to sit through an entire class. Some children might need more frequent breaks than others. So ease your kids and introduce some refreshing break ideas in their daily routine. 

It is a basic child psychology that if the students discover the purpose of learning, he/she will definitely get motivated to learn well in class. And this is what the teachers at Pearson, the best CBSE school in Hyderabad abides by. Our teachers and the whole school’s staff, put in their hard efforts in order to make sure that each student goes home with a new lesson, a better understanding, and a sound knowledge.
