Keeping Your Child’s Hybrid Learning Environment Organized

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do everything these days, including how we educate our children. With many New Jersey schools operating on a hybrid or fully remote schedule—including in Haledon, NJ—more and more children are learning from home through virtual classes. It’s new to both parents and teachers, and not all will go swimmingly at first. If you can figure out how to stay organized, however, it will be a much smoother and less stressful process for you and your kids.


Hybrid Learning: Tips to Staying Organized

Create a schedule on a dry-erase board.

It’s so much simpler to keep track of to-dos and moving parts if you can see it all in front of you. A dry-erase board comes in handy for tracking homework assignments, times to attend virtual lessons, daily scheduling, and more. You can add and erase tasks as needed and have the board mounted on the wall by your child’s workspace, keeping all the information in view and preventing you from guessing what’s due today or what your child needs to complete by tomorrow.

Label plastic totes for specific school items.

Everything is easier to find when it’s put in a dedicated spot and labeled correctly. Plastic bins and storage units come in many different sizes and are best used for storing magnets, colored pencils, flashcards, and other school supplies. Invest in a few plastic bins for your child’s crafts and accessories. Set them somewhere like a storage cabinet, beside a desk, or in the closet to keep them out of the way but easily within reach.

Get distractions out of the way.

Having virtual classes at home also means having your child’s toys, video games, electronics, and other distractions in the way. It’s important to create a designated spot for learning and to keep distracting items far from the area to keep your child focused on schoolwork. A cluttered work environment is never beneficial to children’s education, so you may consider moving some of the mess into self storage if you want to provide an organized “classroom” while they’re learning at home.
