Distance learning is new to everyone. Here are a few steps you can take to help prepare your children for distance learning.

  • Begin creating a routine: Get to bed at a regular time to get enough sleep. Get up early enough to have breakfast and get dressed, before class starts.
  • Create a learning space for your child, if possible, with minimal distractions. An optimal setting is a quiet location where your student can spread out their device and other learning materials on a table or desk.
  • Prepare devices and learning materials. Test the microphone and camera on your device, and if you have headphones, make sure they work. Consider having your child use headphones during online class, especially if you have multiple siblings and other distractions
  • Make every effort to attend classes, engage in online activities, and be an active participant in their own education while in a virtual classroom
  • Complete assignments during the assigned time frame on their own, or with help from parents as appropriate.
  • Work under their teacher’s guidance and communicate with their teachers around any conflict that may arise in regard to the completion of their work
  • Notify the teacher immediately if they receive inappropriate online interactions.

Tsarskhan Mongolian School is providing families with tips and resources on Zoom learning through the Parental Help classes. This includes online live tutorial classes, additional resource materials, and support to help you optimize your student’s experience.

Please communicate with your child’s teacher if you feel your child needs additional resources or support. Thank you for your interest and partnership in our program.
