Screen-Time For Home Learning (For Grades K-3)

(This post is part of a series of 5 blogs meant to help families of children grades K-3 cope with school this fall. Links to the other four at the end of this post)

Can screens really be that helpful when it comes to educating children grades K-3?

The answer is a "cautious yes".

As parents, we are faced with a difficult choice when it comes to screen time, especially during quarantine, double especially that we are not trained to teach our children, AND that we have our own work to do. Screens offer a solution to teach our children, track their learning progress, and keep them engaged while we get stuff done. So, why not?

This is one of the more controversial topics among both teachers and parents. There will always be a reason to go for it and a reason to stay away.
