Great ideas!

During this time of uncertainty with how our schools will be interacting with the students hear are just a small idea of things you can do with the kids to help your ADHD child(ren). Keeping them in a routine now will be easier than trying to starting one after they have been home for a few weeks with no structure.

Very important: Keep your kids on the same schedule as school but maybe add additional breaks for downtime and fun time, including some you do with them and some which include downtime for you.

Outdoor time (recess) is probably most important during this uncertainty, if it’s raining make it a car ride.

Print out pictures of things you might see if you go on a walk. They might look for a specific number, squirrel, mud, slide, etc. if more than one kid put them in different order and then make them find the things in the order on their individual list. Make a bingo chart with them.

If it’s raining or for something different to do take a car ride with pictures of things you might see if you go to an area where something is being built like a bulldozer, pile of sand, scrap pieces of wood, a street name where they’re building houses that starts with the letter S, a food truck, etc. Also plan a picnic in the car where you can watch the birds, animals, or water in a park that you rarely go to not the one you visit all of the time.

Make learning a game whether matching a question-type card with an answer card. A good one is if the student is learning to tell time. Print one set of cards with the written time - 10:25 and the matching card would be a picture of a click with that time. You can do more difficult such as time is 10:25 what time is 20 minutes later? This can be done for matching multiplication facts and other things.

Reading is a terrific downtime and for language arts. Pre-read and write down definitions of words they might look fit in the text. Do this after they read it they won’t concentrate on what they are reading. Act out a story or a part of one of the stories.

Science could be making play doh which playing with it and using cookie cutters can be their downtime after measuring and mixing. Also cut a circle or square out of the play doh and have them cut it into thirds or ask them to cut out 3/8 of it.

It’s wildflower season! Take car rides to see the beautiful wildflowers it’s the Whooping craned are supposed to be heading back north. See if they can identify the birds they see or the what kind of wildflower they are seeing. Please keep in mind that if you are taking pictures in a bunch of wildflowers to look for snakes before you just plop down. I tend to make lots of noise as I am walking slowly out so they slither away, hopefully.

Let your kids take pictures and learn how to focus and zoom in or out. After taking some be sure to look them over with the kids to see what makes the picture better and what doesn’t. Don’t wait until you get home or the child might not have a good pick of something they really want.

We have some great national parks in Texas that are nearby, make it an all day field trip. Add other learning experiences in as you think of them. Be sure to pack a lunch if you are gone very long and takes lots of wipes.

At the end of the day or the week let them choose X number of picture to print. Show them how to size them before printing. Have them write about what was their favorite and why, what they didn’t like and why, and what they had hoped to have happen or see and why they were unable. Have them do their writing daily and print the pictures to let them cut and paste the writing and find what pictures that would best illustrate.

Pull up a program that teaches typing. There are some great ones for all ages. You can pull this up and keep them from going anywhere else on the computer.

Let them do their “schoolwork” near you and let them go to work with you at home.

Check out all of the posts in Facebook about teaching-type sites and other things to do while your kids are working at home for the next few weeks. There is another site listed that provides access and information regarding things for your child(ren) while the district is teaching online.

Any questions or comments? Email me or give me a call at 281-392-6064. Good Luck!!
