Texas requires a certain number of minutes of class time in the school year, so our remote learning is supposed to be the full school day in theory.
In practice, my DS10 twins have 4 core classes with live teaching via teams at scheduled times throughout the school day, each followed by time to work independently on (mostly) online assignments. They also have some asynchronous PE and library assignments. Now that tech bugs are mostly worked out, they are generally easily finishing so we’re filling extra time with whatever enrichment we can find (extra credit, reading, etc). We’re trying to maintain a “no recreational screens during school hours” rule so they aren’t rushing through their work.
Trying to hold to same rule for DS16. He has 6 academic classes per day, and it’s a similar story. 4 have a live teaching component each day, the other 2 don’t always. His last period of the day is cross country which combines with after-school practice time, so I need to run him up to school for that 75 min. He’s showing no interest in doing any “enrichment” though. He’s been mainly napping on the couch if he has gaps during the day. It’s unfortunate that he frequently has sporadic dead time early in the day, but then gets assignments in his later classes he has to finish in the evenings.
Twins scheduled lunch is at 10:35(!) and DS16 is at 11:15. DD19 and her boyfriend (staying with us this semester) vary depending on their class schedules and remote jobs, as does DH and his endless telecons. I’ve taken to cooking in the evenings and then putting out a “leftover buffet” every day for lunch. I feel like I’m running an inn.
