Schooling At Home During A Pandemic: Our Favorite Virtual Learning Websites

The sudden school closures along with closures of museums, libraries, and the limiting of crowds, has caused a lot of uncertanity and anxiety among families with school aged children. We are being taken out of our normal routines and finding resources for some has been daunting. I would like to share a few free, online learning resources that we have been incorporating into our homeschool day.

Schooling At Home During A Pandemic: Our Favorite Virtual Learning Websites
1. NatGeo @ Home - National Geographic has recently launched NatGeo@Home on their website. This particular section of Nat Geo is a centralized location of learning materials such as games, videos, worksheets, and books designed to support families in their new normal of learning at home.

2. Scholastic Learn At Home - Scholastic has provided 4 weeks worth of learning and activities for grades pre-kindergarten thorugh the 9th grade. My daughter has already finished the first grade assignments and enjoyed the variation to her normal school work. There is a Resources for Families section that includes science videos, free worksheets, and creative reading and drawing class from the Library of Congress.

3. Corona Virus Homeschooling - This website offers encouragement to families during this unexpected change and free daily lesson plans. Simple, fun, just make sure you are loaded up with printer ink. Just sign up on the website to get started.

4. Giving Artfully Kids - Giving Artfully Kids is an art program that helps kids experience joy in giving. Live art classes take place on Wednesdays and Fridays and my daughter has enjoyed the classes so far. Just head on over to their website to sign up.
5. Education.com - Why didn't I think of this site before? Education.com is providing resources for families, guided lessons, independent study packets and much more. This is another site where you want to make sure your printer is loaded with ink as the activities are printables.

Some other resources that we are enjoying are live drawing and storytime with Pete the cat, Art For Kids Hub on Youtube, GoNoodle, Deep Space Sparkle art class, and Highlights Kids. Before this all started, we didn't really use online learning much in our homeschool day, but I am welcoming this change to our day, my daughter is enjoying it, and I am impressed with the quality of information being shared from these wonderful companies. Have you incorporated virtual learning into your homeschool day? Let me know in the comments below. Until Next Time.
