I put this together for my kid who is 6 and in a dual language French program in Brooklyn, but please feel free to add stuff you come across and share with anyone who might find it helpful. There are three sheets: 1. resources 2. drawing prompts for older kids 3. recommended movies/shows for screening

Resource platformlanguageFound this helpful advice from someone who has homeschooling for over a decade: "For everyone who is adjusting to homeschooling after years of having your kids in school, I'd like to make a suggestion from someone who has been doing it for over a dacade and every grade from pre-K through senior in high school. Please stop trying to make a schedule that resembles school--this is not how homeschooling works well. If your kids are getting some distance learning from their school that might dictate much of their schedule. If they are not, try letting them sleep in, eat a big breakfast and pick their first subject for the day. Plan to acvtively school for 90 mins. to 2 hrs. tops and then supervise them while they work on other school activities like worksheets, writing assignments, online quizzes, art projects, music making, documentary watching, physical activity, reading, etc. Remember that depending on their age, a whole lot of things might be school worthy--a puzzle, lego building, reading a book, drawing, watching instructional videos, learning to code, exploring the history of something they find interesting, etc. Embrace the beatufy of having them in this alternative learning environment that is temporary" (@brooklyndoula; don't know her personally)
