Parents are juggling so much while kids are learning from home! Between the housework, cooking, keeping their kids engaged in schoolwork, being parents, managing their own career obligations, and not to mention any self-care. It’s hard. As teachers, we know how to integrate. So there is no reason why we shouldn’t help out parents by taking some of the weight off of their shoulders with chores. Assign chores as your student’s schoolwork.
We put together a list of chores along with how it can be a learning experience – and you can download it for free here! There are a lot of standards based learning ideas in this free download. Get creative and do what you do best! This will be great for our kinesthetic learners also – they don’t often get such a wonderful learning opportunity!
