Because Life is Better at the Lake

5 Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling at Lake Palestine

by




COVID-19 has many parents schooling their children virtually during the 2020-21 school year. If you’re one of them, you might consider a short excursion to Lake Palestine during the week when fewer people will be at the lake. More than 2,000 Texas public school students have tested positive for COVID-19 since school started, so why not do your social distancing at a place where you can enjoy your favorite recreational activities?

Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling

If you’ve decided to school your children online this year, try these virtual learning hacks as you enjoy some family time at Lake Palestine.

  1. Create virtual school workstations - To cut down on distractions and keep your children focused on learning, take a cue from one mom who created virtual workstations for her children using inexpensive poster board.
  2. Set up a cell phone charging center - One distraction many public schools have reported in recent years are personal cell phones in the classrooms. Students end up spending more time texting with each other than doing class work. While public school teachers may not be able to take phones, Mom can. Set up a charging station for your entire family and keep all the phones at that one location in the house. Students can have them at break time.
  3. Establish a home network - If your children log into virtual school on multiple devices throughout the day, you can save a lot of time by networking your devices to allow students to login to virtual school quickly from any device.
  4. Ask if your school gives credit for life experiences - Many colleges and universities offer students credit for life experiences. Since students in primary and secondary schools frequently take field trips and get learning credit for them, ask your virtual school administrator if a trip to Lake Palestine would qualify as learning credit. You never know, they may say “Yes.”
  5. Stream classroom training to your TV - If you have a smart TV, you may be able to stream Zoom classroom meetings and other online lectures to your TV. If you don't, you can simply use a wifi-compatible adapter.
Enjoy Virtual Schooling at Lake Palestine

Just because you’re schooling your children from home doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Take your family to Lake Palestine for a week and let your children participate in online learning during the day while enjoying some quality recreational time in the afternoon and evening. Lake Palestine has some incredible cabins and family getaways you can rent while your children gain the benefits of virtual schooling.

GOOD. Water clear; 73 degrees; 0.28 low. Largemouth bass are good working Texas-rigged worms, shaky heads, and small crankbaits near boat docks, drop-offs, and rocks. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs around bridges and timber in 15-25’. Hybrid stripers are good on live bait, A-rigs, and swimbaits. White bass are good on slabs and jigging spoons.
