Organization is Key
First and foremost, staying organized is vital, especially in a small space like an RV. Try keeping a bin or folder for each child so that you always have a place to keep assignments and homework. Additionally, keeping a list of what is due and when on your refrigerator can help you and the kids stay on the right track.
If you or the kids are struggling to focus or can’t seem to get on the same page, try a change of scenery. Sometimes just taking the books, laptops, and papers outside can give you all a fresh start on the day. You can even set up an outdoor study space under your awning or at the picnic table to help the kids have a clean place to work.
It may seem counter-intuitive to the last tip, but it’s good to have “focus times,” as well. Relaxed study time outdoors can help ease anxiety about a subject or inspire a new way to think about a problem. Times of focus with limited distractions can help your child complete tasks more effectively. Especially if these “focus times” are timed.
Most importantly, be easy on yourself and the kids during this unusual time. Schooling from home in an RV isn’t the life for everyone, but if you love to travel and experience new things with those you love, you will find your own tips and tricks to make it work.
