Weekly Boost Resources
As we enter the third-phase of the MCO, our guess is that most of us are running out of ideas on remote activity plan.
Here are Ideas about Remote Learning and Weekly Boost Resources to supplement you school’s lesson plans.
1. Activities done using a digital device
Apple’s team of educators have come up with a 30-day activity plan that can help. The activity plan was designed for children between the age of 4 and 8 and includes activities like scavenger hunts, making coloring sheets, creating time-lapse videos, taking slow-motion videos, and more. These activities were designed to be done using a digital device like an iPad but you can use a phone too. You can see the activities and find out more here.
2. Listening to Audiobooks
Audiobooks for children are a great way to introduce story telling and to encourage reluctant young readers. Who didn’t love a bedtime story as a kid? They’re also ideal to introduce during your Zoom sessions or recorded videos.
Reading teaches children phonics, expands vocabulary, and highlights important moral values.Those who did listen to audiobooks for children achieved:
- x3 reading comprehension (2nd and 3rd grade)
- x7 vocabulary (3rd grade)
- x4 reading motivation (2nd and 3rd grade)
- 33% increase in rate of learning (2nd and 3rd grade)
Right now, Audible (the audiobooks service) is making their collection of kids’ stories freeto stream online, as schools close around the world. Click here for the little listeners section.
