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.
