Distance Learning Resources

Schroeder Mustangs,
 
This page will provide you with resources your child can use for Distance Learning. Students can access all the district's apps through Class Link.  This is a single sign-on and students shouldn't have to sign on to each individual app once in classlink.

Enrichment Activities - Below are some ideas to do during this "school at home" time:
 
  • Take Virtual Field Trips - Just google and there are many!  Museums, zoos, 7 Wonders of the World, etc

  • Write Letters to friends and family and mail them!  Write letters to seniors in retirement homes since they can't have visitors right now - mail them!

  • Learn a 2nd language - lots of apps available for you to try! Sign Language is a good one to learn!

  • Have students cook with you - teach them about fractions, reading a recipe, following directions, etc.
  •  
  • Learn the basics to run a household - budget, wash clothes, take care of the lawn, balance the checkbook, etc.

Create a Schedule - this will help with everyone's mental health! :)  Your child shouldn't be doing 6-7 hours of academic work.  Break up the learning with a variety of activities to help them focus.

Here is a basic schedule - adapt as fits your family! It will look differently for younger students vs older students.

Wake-up - 9AM - breakfast, silent reading, write in journal

9AM-10AM - chores, make bed, brush teeth, get dressed

10:00-10:45 - outside time/PE Activities - walks, bikes, jumprope, chalk, just dance, gonoodle

10:45-11:45 - Learning Time - math activities, writing, reading activities

11:45-12:15 - Digital Learning Time - lots of choices - go to our website for ideas:
