Where do I find a curriculum if my child’s school didn’t provide materials?

There are several options. Many companies are providing free resources, and we will make suggestions. This is also the perfect opportunity to use what you have available:

  • Dive into uninterrupted discussions about topics of interest
  • Journal – keep a record of what life is like during this time.
  • Play is a powerful learning tool, so let the kids play — and don’t feel guilty about it.
  • Watch and discuss documentaries
  • Write and perform skits
  • Rewrite the endings of familiar stories
  • Perform science experiments (YouTube has a lot of good ones)
  • Listen to podcasts
  • Write letters or emails
  • Discuss math/science concepts while cooking or baking
  • Read a book – then watch the movie version and discuss the differences
  • Plan a family trip (this is an example of an activity that can incorporate numerous topics – everything from geography to language arts and math)
  • Set up an arts and crafts station with whatever you have on hand.
  • Read books that are sitting on the shelf
  • Brainstorm topics that family members would like to investigate.
