Part 1: At Home Free Resources
For those families that are in self quarantine, have chosen to un-enroll or chose not to participate in the online lesson program we have set up that is provided by our teacher, we wanted to find a way to still find a way to support you and your families. What we are going to be doing over the next few weeks is presenting all of our readers, followers and families with free vetted educational resources for children of all ages. This is our best attempt at trying to keep supporting all of the children from our community.
Each week, we will be providing these resource lists based on specific learning areas (Activity / Well being, Reading / Writing, Math, Languages, etc.). We hope you enjoy!
