Here is a checklist I started on almost a week ago, when I started to sense that school closures may become a reality…
Also, as you all probably know, there are TONS of free online education resources being shared on social media right now. Here are the ones we have tried so far, and I will keep adding more to the list as we try them out.
- Duolingo – offers fun and easy exercises to learn a language. We are working on Chinese and Spanish.
- Science Mom – very cool science lesson videos (kids love watching the experiments).
- McHarper Manor – daily free art lessons with (mostly) simple supply list. My older girls (ages 10 & 12) are enjoying these.
- Mo Willems – daily lunch doodle with Mo Willems. My younger kids (ages 8 & 5) are having fun doodling!
- Deep Space Sparkle – lots of fun art projects for all ages.
- Home Safari Videos – daily videos of a specific animal from the Cincinnati Zoo. My kids are starting to look forward to this every day.
- MiniLu’s PE Teacher – he started a YouTube channel to help keep the students engaged in P.E.
- Cosmic Kids Yoga – Fun Yoga videos for kids.
- NASA Space Place, Story Time from Space, Video from Space – Fun videos to learn about space.
- Spring Break at Home – At home activity ideas from Kidding Around Greenville.
- Bright Side – Fun videos about science, creativity, puzzles/riddles, etc.
- National Geographic & National Geographic Kids – Educational videos
- Enneagram & Stress Series – Videos addressing how each Enneagram type handles stress by Ian Morgan Cron (this is an education resource for Mommy)
We haven’t tried the ones listed below yet (as of 4/8/20), but we hope to try some of them soon.
