As students continue with virtual learning, the idea of zoom fatigue is very real. Consider these 5 tips to help your student to stay engaged.

When Virtual Learning Fatigue Sets In

  • Take frequent, quick breaks/stretches/deep breaths.
  • Talk with the teacher about virtual field trips. Or, set up one for your family (the kids can miss one day of virtual school, then have your child do a presentation about the field trip for the class).
  • Use a timer for the least-liked subject or task. It helps to create a definite end.
  • Use a checklist so they can cross things off as they are completed. This act can foster a sense of accomplishment.
  • Makeover the learning/work area.

BONUS: Virtual learning is giving a brand new meaning to needing a mental health day. Be sure to watch how your child is adjusting and respond accordingly, even if that means contacting your healthcare provider.
