Loren Bailly, third grade teacher at Taft Elementary and liaison-in-residence for Boise State Teacher Education, has some recommendations for parents teaching, working and learning at home with kids. Her experience as a teacher prompted her to create a daily schedule, which keeps everyone on task.

“A schedule makes a huge difference for us,” Bailly said. “Definitely a lot less arguing.”

In addition to creating a schedule and developing routines, Bailly recommends designating workspaces, even if it’s the corner of your kitchen table.

Check out the video Bailly created to see how she’s making life and learning work at home.
