I love it when the kids are out of school for Spring break because it gives them a much needed rest from waking up early and the daily morning rush. It can also be a little bit challenging to maintain some form of routine and keeping to schedule. While we want them to have a lot of fun, most educators also worry about the tendency for their students to revert back on all the progresses they have made the whole semester. Even though one week sounds like a short time, it can mean a lot when it comes to maintaining behavior and scheduling patterns in children.
One way to prevent this problem is to set aside an activity for them to complete daily. Make this something they can enjoy while still helping to maintain some form of orderliness and keeping to a schedule. Most kids love screen time. To turn this into a win-win for them and also helping you get them to keeping to a schedule, set aside a time for completion of small tasks or activities. They are then rewarded for completion of these tasks or activities.
Allow your kid some free play time after completion of these small tasks. Tasks could come in the form of group/ family activities, education games, making their own study boards and many more. The key to this is to make it something they enjoy.
