Social Distancing LearningResources + More

Updated: Mar 31


Many of you have asked us for more resources like links, ideas, recommendations and sample schedules for your little one(s) during this time. Keep in mind that rotating these activities plus reading your child's response to them is key. I personally have a list and I scratch the online resources and activities off once I've used it for the week. In addition, if your child was sent home school work, like worksheets, make sure to keep them exciting. As someone who previously taught middle school for seven years, learning needs to be fun! Worksheets will get boring and will make your child restless. Try doing worksheets outside, or have a lunch picnic or do brain breaks every so often.


Below we have broken everything up in categories:


Schedules:

Keep in mind that these are just templates that you can play around with and don't feel you need to stick by them every single day. See how your little one is feeling and the mood he/she is in.
