Resources for Families During COVID-19

Updated: Jun 9


I know that a lot of parents are probably pretty worried about what their kids will be doing while schools are closed so I wanted to share some of the resources I use for my kids and some others have shared with me. I included a few YouTube channels because my kids love YouTube so I searched for channels that actually had some educational value.


I have another post on the home learning schedule we use at home during the school closures.
