The measures regarding the corona virus were tightened even more on Monday evening. For the time being, schools will be closed until April 6, after which the cabinet will look further. Many children receive online lessons as a result. But what is the best way to do this?
1. Create a learning environment
Just as you create a working environment for yourself, it is nice if your child also has its own learning environment. It doesn't matter where he / she learns as long as your child can concentrate. Whether in different places throughout the house, at the table or on the floor. Be flexible in this and see what works best for them. Try to limit distractions, such as the television is on.

2. Consider what technology they need
This can be from a simple Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) to a more specific video player. If they are not free, it is worth checking if the school has a shared license or access package that you can use.
3. Make a schedule
It is important that your children see this period not only as an 'extended vacation', but as a normal school from home. Therefore, create structure. This can be done, for example, by creating a schedule, so that they have a routine and know what to expect.
4. Stay around to help, but don't get in the way If your child finds a task difficult, be available to make suggestions and answer questions. However, let him or her do things as much as possible. If you don't know the answer yourself, work with your child to find a solution.
Try to make the most of it, because it's a challenging time for everyone. Do what you can, but don't be too hard on yourself (and your child).
