At Home Learning Made Easy

Whether you are teaching virtually through distance learning, using a hybrid in school – at home model or homeschooling by choice, students are doing all or part of their learning from home. And if you are currently teaching in person in the classroom, you know the very real risk that tomorrow students could begin learning from home. These at home learning activities are your answer to providing engaging skills-based practice for your students no matter where they are learning.

Do You Worry About Your Students?

If you answered yes, you are not alone. Student learning from home is much different than in the classroom. Students of all ages are forced into more independent learning than would happen if the teacher were there with them. While this is an amazing way to help our students grow in independence, as teachers we do worry about providing learning opportunities that can be done independently.

Independent learning activities walk a fine line between being easy busy work and so hard it’s frustrating. We don’t want our at home assignments to be either. Instead, we want to do our best to keep the same flow of learning that we would in the classroom. This includes instruction and guided practice before independent practice.

It can be time-consuming and expensive to find resources for all.the.subjects. When I was thinking about ways that I could best serve teachers, this area came to mind. By doing the hard work for you, you can save time and money while still providing your students with fun and engaging at home learning activities. Don’t let the name fool you – these are great to use in the classroom too!

No Prep At Home Learning Packets

I have pulled together 3 different at home learning packets, each for a different grade level. While the skills and content differ by grade level, the idea is the same. Each packet is filled with over 100 pages of skills-based math, reading, and language arts activities that are perfect for the first quarter of the school year.

How to Use the Activities

Here’s some ideas on how to use the resources in these packets:

  1. If you are currently teaching in person in the classroom, begin using these resources in centers, as independent practice assignments, or even as homework. This gives you the ability to work with students on what to do and the expectations for each activity. Should you need to transition to at home learning, you will be ready to use the activities to put together an at-home learning pack filled with activities that your students already know how to do!
  2. If you are doing virtual teaching, I would suggest teaching the topic first, if it is a new skill for your class. You can do this through a prerecorded video or lesson that you share with your students or through an online class meeting. Then use one of these pages and complete them together with your students. They make a great guided practice opportunity and this allows you to model your expectations for future activities that are similar. Use the remaining pages on that skill as independent practice and review.
  3. If your students are working at home without internet or virtual options, then these pages are PERFECT for creating an at home learning packet. Don’t be afraid to do a question or two on a page as a way of showing the students what to do. If you can’t teach them in person, this makes a great way to introduce a skill. As you complete the question make sure to explain your actions and thinking just as you would if you were in the classroom.
  4. Any teacher can use the grade level below you as a great independent skills review for your students. Additionally, this would also be great for students that are struggling and need a step back before working on grade level standards.
