“Some of my tips for surviving the e-learning experience with the 3 to 5 year old age group!”


Organization is required for e-learning, especially when the times are allotted by the school. This means that there are set times to log on or off, assignments due, meetings with other teachers, specials, etc. Organization sets the stage for great productivity, especially with younger kids.

Get tools that can help to make the organization easier for you. Post-it notes, for example, are ideal for jotting down reminders, lists of things to be done, tasks, etc. For Post-it Notes, get different colors so that you can personalize them to specific activities, for instance, blue for assignments due, red for teachers' meetings, etc.

Have a few stacks around as well so that you can have reminders readily available to get your day going. Planners also offer a great way to keep organized as busy moms.
