School at Home

distance learning school at home

The kids are bouncing off the walls — excited about a break from school, but now you’re tasked with managing them at home all day for weeks, potentially months, all while juggling work, dishes, laundry, taking care of the dog, cat, fish and all the other adulting stuff we do. Oh, I forgot to mention, the added stress of having to scavenge hunt grocery stores to find food, toilet paper and cleaning products (that are no where to be found) while practicing social distancing of a minimum of six feet. You really wish you had more hand sanitizer. It’s enough to drive anyone crazy.

Take a deep breath. You’ve got this — and we can help. The upside to this is family. Turn the unexpected time at home into fun opportunities for learning, playing and connecting with one another.

The websites below have stories for you to read aloud and video storytimes, as well as, crafts, games and hands-on activities to keep you and your children entertained for hours. Forget hearing, “I’m bored,” they’re going to be too busy learning.

As we mentioned earlier, this is a big change for most of us, too. So, we rounded up some information about working from home, activities for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and anything else we thought could help.
