5 tips on how to build an effective weekly learning plan for kids
Three years ago, when I started tutoring my daughter, I didn’t have a daily nor a weekly learning plan. I just had a toolbox of different activities to choose from depending on my kid’s mood.
After a few months, I naturally transitioned to adopting daily and weekly routines instead. Basically, a primitive version of a weekly learning plan.
I transitioned because my 3 years old daughter liked it better to always know what we were about to do. I think having a daily learning plan also helps her feel secure, in control and more engaged. Additionally, she knows in advance how much effort is required and can mentally prepare accordingly.
Another reason why I started building a weekly learning plan is because it is a practical way to consolidate all the learnings from countless hours of teaching. Things like how many activities, what type of activities, in which order, what difficulty level, where to practice and how long to practice are all embedded in my weekly learning plan.
I constantly re-model and optimize the learning plan as kids develop to keep them engaged and always learning new things effectively.
