Self organized learning is a skill that is only rarely taught. This “corona shut down” is a great chance for a revolution of learning like problem solving, information researching and reading, reading, reading. Math tasks and foreign languages can be solved with the specific school books. The teachers should tell at least the program for a week. The ...

This is nice for a bit science interested kids. Many things easier to understand from visually clear animations. I would search for animations in the related subjects for the math, physics and chemistry part. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ0yBou72Lz9fqeMXh9mkog There are some misleading fake scientific "facts" among mostly correct facts in the scientific,...

I would recommend Coursera as their classes are from respectable colleges and professors. Also, another online class program I've used that I have very much enjoyed and learned from was The Great Courses Plus. There, are classes on nearly everything you can think of. From less complex topics an elementary or middle schoool student can comprehend and learn ...

I would grasp the opportunity to teach them about things that they don't learn in school, or to teach them in a different way from the way they are taught in school. Perhaps look at family photos and family trees and talk about how your grandparents lived; visit the neighbourhood and study the changes. Go into the garden and find insects. Study your energy ...

If the kids are allowed to take their textbooks home, it should be a simple matter to get emails from their teachers with lesson plans (all teachers have to have lesson plans in place.) Then just ave the child follow the plan, or do it with them. If they don't have their textbooks, you might need to be creative.

Played it as a kid in the exact same way and there is nothing wrong with it on itself. The problem was probably that your daughters " tail" was tugged in a bit to deep so it took her shorts down when it got pulled out. So maybe advise her to make her tail barely inside her shorts. Also this game was popular here ad possibly is also popular there, If due ...

To answer your last question, yes, I recall that variation of the game from school as well. But don't take that as an excuse, there are a lot of things that were going on in school back when I went that I would find problematic today. It's not inconceivable that the same thing might happen again, and that's not an embarrassment the school should expose your ...

Please note that this is my personal opinion. We played this version in school as well, the tail was the ribbon loops otherwise used to mark opposing teams. Of course the more of the ribbon one tucked in, the harder it was for the other players to grab the tail - and the higher the risk of a slight underwear exposure when they did. Reading your post, I ...

If you know anyone who homeschools their kids, this is exactly the question they have solved. Talk to them and see if they have any tips! Growing up homeschooled, when I was younger I had a much more structured day, but when I was older, I managed my own time and once I had completed a day's work, I could mostly do what I wanted. There is also a sizeable ...

Khan Academy is a great resource for letting children learn math and science/technology at any age. It allows children to progress through different subjects, includes videos to teach them each subject and then offers practice questions to help them master subjects. I in particular use the "MAP Recommended Practice" feature with my son, who is a fairly ...

We used to have similar issues with our son. Eventually we got him tested (autism) and he is now going to a specialized school. Those aren't scary, it takes quite a bit of time, but if it's really the issue nothing beats specialized help. Those are outside the scope of this forum though.. Leading up to that these are the things we tried/noticed with some ...

I am not aware of any state-sponsored teaching systems that "focus on understanding the essence of concepts". Among the widely known systems, Montessori methodology is pretty close to what you are asking about. That is, at least for math up to the elementary school levels - I have not followed it for later years. There are numerous articles online on the ...
