Why use a Schedule at Home?

During uncertain times it is important that we maintain consistency. Visual schedules can serve this purpose. There are many versions of schedules for children out there. Sometimes a schedule can serve as a comfort to children, knowing what to do and when to do it, helps maintain normalcy. Layering fun activities with more academic activities can help children have things to look forward and make work a little less daunting. Remember learning is happening everywhere, playing games, cooking suppers and organizing movie nights are all great ways to build children's executive functioning. Teaching a game or sport helps build confidence and leadership skills. Most importantly of all know that we are all in this together and I am always here if you need ideas.
