While technology is an essential tool for homeschool education, it is important to find a balance in your child’s learning where they can participate in outdoor and physical activities. Finding a few minutes to disconnect and take a break from the computer screen can help your child stay more focused, improve communication skills and understand different learning styles. With social distancing guidelines in place, we have provided some safe, technology-free activities to keep your child busy and on target with their education.
