For us, school has been canceled for the next two weeks, and then we are having our regularly scheduled 2-week spring break.
Big kids school sent home a big ol’ packet of worksheets (about 50 pages), which would be most of the work they would do in the classroom. Little kids preschool has been cancelled, so I did a quick google search for free preschool printables so she can do “homework” alongside Big Brother. But I’m not stressing too much about worksheets.
There have been a lot of schedules and ideas posted on social media.
I changed up one of the super colorful schedules going around, included stuff that we like to do, and more relevant activities, and posted it here on my google pages. You can copy it and change it as needed for you. And I made it black and white to save your printer some ink.
There are tons of free educational activities online for kids to do. Here is a Google Doc with tons of links that has been making the rounds.
Scholastic set up a ‘Learn From Home’ website with four categories: PreK and Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2, Grades 3-5, and Grades 6+. Each section is already equipped with one week of content for students with 15 additional days on the way.
I’m not too worried about keeping the kids busy. Big dude brought home his school iPad and has access to his math and reading stuff, plus we have craft supplies and toys to play with.
And failing all that- Frozen 2 is on Disney+, and we’ve got Minecraft. If you don’t have Disney+, you can score Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN for a pretty low monthly price.
And sooo many bubbles. I’m not sure why, but kids love bubbles.
Don’t forget that March is National Craft Month! There are kinds of freebies and deals here.
