No matter our plans for the 2020-2021 school year, every family has lots of questions about what life will look like. Whether your children are returning physically to school, learning remotely or homeschooling, we and PBS KIDS have the resources that can help us work together to bolster our little ones’ feelings of confidence and security! Keep reading to find ways to create and practice routines, cope with anxiety and emotions, and new games and ways to learn at home.
No matter what type of learning our littles are doing, routines are important. A good way to start is practice a daily routine. Check out resources — from articles and printables to games — and put a piece of strategy from Mama Tiger herself to use: “Before we start something new, let’s talk about what we’ll do!”
Learning at Home
If you’re learning at home, tips and resources are always in demand. Check out PBS KIDS’ remote learning collections for reading, simple science activities, preschool learning, setting your home learning environment up for success and more.
Going Back to School
When kids are heading back — or for the first time! — to the classroom both you and they probably have lots of questions, in addition to concerns. Learn how to help your children with ways to cope with normal beginning-of-school-year worries and how to calm unique anxieties.
Whether it’s your first year homeschooling or you’re all veterans, we and PBS Kids have the resources you need to get started and shake up your routines. There’s even content for the potential of reentering traditional schools.
