There are many tips and tricks to making online learning and face to face communication over the Internet successful and pleasant.

Distance Learning Dress Code

Wear school appropriate clothing | No pajamas here! Some will opt to dress up on top and remain casual in sweatpants or other casual wear, but I recommend fully dressing so students feel put together.

The title of my post, as you can well suss, is a play on the old adage, 'dress for the job you want'.

Young students who learn this life lesson early with thrive in years to come!

Perform Basic Personal Hygiene Routine | Students should arrive in 'class' with their teeth and hair brushed, clothing tidy with food in their bellies and a smile on their faces. 

I've created an easy to use Personal Hygiene Checklist printable below.

Morning Routine Tips

The ability to dress for the grade you want comes from ample time to take care of dressing and personal hygiene each morning.

Here are some tested morning routine tips to help busy families wake refreshed and enjoy the transition to school.

  • Prep the night before for lessons and activities including clothing
  • Set an alarm and get in the habit of getting up, not hitting the snooze button

Kids Personal Hygiene Checklist

I designed this kids personal hygiene checklist to serve as a tool for families who may be tired of the daily morning inquiries.

When posting this checklist for all the younger family members either in the bathroom or each child's bedroom, families can empower their kids to clean up.

I use a Command hook to hang a pen that can be used each morning to check off each of the activities.

I've had abundant success with incentive programs with my kids through the years and encourage it!

Some argue that you shouldn't reward behavior that should be carried out with or without a prize at the end.

I say that by providing incentives for good behavior you are helping the kids create their own good habits. 

With the right use of these checklists and rewards, you shouldn't have to use this in excess.

Kids Checklist Rewards

There are endless ways to reward kids' good behavior and habits.

  • I like to keep a stash of goodies - candies, fresh felt tip pens, notebooks, chewing gum - on hand to dole out each week.
  • I also like to plan experiences as rewards.
  • A trip to the beach, a special meal, a bike ride or schedule playdate with a friend are all seen as bonus time in our family.
  • Work to create this excitement for time spent together doing favorite things.

Be present for a board game, card playing and outdoor horsing around. These create the memories of childhood that's OUR incentive for healthy parenting!
