COVID-19 Closed Schools.
The world is in a whirlwind right now and kids are home. It's not just a week or two that they're closed. I've heard schools are closed in Canada indefinitely and most likely out for the rest of the year. G12 is graduated, your kinder is finished kinder and will be placed into grade 1 next year.. It's just done.
If you're not home with your kids day in and day out, teaching them, guiding them.. I get how overwhelming this is and how you just don't know what to do.
Here are some really good resources that I personally use to supplement our learning.
VOOKS - StoryBooks Brought To life. We Love VOOKS. Watch bestseller books being read to your little.
OtherGoose - OtherGoose is offering 3 weeks free! For ages 2-7 years old, take away the pain of putting together your own lesson plan. OtherGoose does it for you.
EarthSchooling- Also offering free curriculum for a limited time. They offer some really fun and natural based learning, games, crafts and sing along songs. Earth Schooling is Waldorf inspired learning.
Education.com - Crafts, games, science lessons and more. Education is one of my favorite websites to go to for a quick lesson or a coloring sheet. They offer free or membership plans.
Lakeshore Learning - One of my favorite in person stores who I just learned offers online resources as well! Here is a link to some free lesson guides.
Crayola - Crayola has a whole website designed for home learning. But they also have a lot of amazing craft ideas, printables and more to keep you busy!
I know that most have no idea where to go, but I want to give you my best tip: Let go of the pressure you're about to put on yourself for your Childs learning. You can turn blocks into a math lesson, count money, bake a cake or 5. The world around you is filled with natural academic lessons.
Indulge in play! Create story books, put on a puppet show, turn your living room into a fort, laugh and dance the days away.
Good luck out there, stay kind, stay humble and stay safe.
