Like most families we found out last week that our school and daycare were closing. For the better part of the weekend I’ve been scrambling to prepare and figure out what our game plan is. Our school district sent home e-learning resources, lesson plans, and enrichment activities. This will help but, as a parent, your bag of tricks can never be too deep.
I’ve started collecting ideas, activities and information for our kids and figured I’d share. Below is a collection of what I’ve aggregated so far. I’ll continue to edit these and encourage anyone to share what they’ve found useful or helpful via this Github Gist.
