“I’m bored. There’s nothing to do,” said every kid who’s suddenly at home with school closed. Every parent has been hearing this lately, as families are suddenly homeschooling as they shelter-in-place.
What you need are some go-to resources.
Here are our top three resources for parents and caregivers suddenly homeschooling:
- A homeschool schedule that provides routine and structure for schooling at home.
- A tutorial on what homeschooling is and is NOT (hint: what you’re being asked to do is not homeschooling)
- 100+ Fun Activities for Kids: This is the ultimate list of fun activities, most of which can be done without extensive parental involvement. Hang it on your fridge. When your child says “I’m bored”, simply point to the list.
