Wise words

“I just want to preface everything I’m saying with the reminder that you’re not to beat yourself up over this – we’re not talking productivity levels here, we’re talking about introducing routine into the home. We’re not expecting anyone to be a home-schooler overnight – we’re trying to just say to people wouldn’t it be nice to introduce a couple of tricks or tools or resources to give that scaffolding of familiarity for children.”
Ciara Reilly, lecturer in education (ICT and Digital Education) at Marino Institute, speaking to Newstalk Breakfast on Saturday morning about tools, tips and tricks available to parents to ensure primary school pupils are kept happy and busy during the closure period.
She said variety is something she really recommends – to make use of any work-pack and advice from the school, but also to introduce new ideas and creative activities.
