Help has arrived....

Ok, so LOTS of parents are suddenly home with their kiddos...

We have always home schooled after I was a classroom teacher for more than a decade, so I say WELCOME and let me help you.πŸ˜‰

A few things to remember, this is a PERFECT time to make memories with your children and learn things beyond "normal" math and reading.

This is a great time to really help your child dig in and spend hours doing or learning something that they love or are passionate about.

Don't forget that there are TONS of documentaries on the streaming services that they might enjoy and learn a lot from.

Here are links that I have gathered to TONS of free fun learning options for all ages from toddlers to AP students to adults. Some are always free and some are only free during this current situationπŸ‘‡

I am making this post public, so feel free to share it far and wide.😍 If you know of a resource for FREE education (either permanent or only during this time) please share it in the comments.
