HELP The Kids Are Home Corona Crisis Homeschooling!!!!!

First, you’ll be fine. It’s going to be fun, sometimes maddening,challenging, crazy, but you can make it be fun and bonding. You’ve got this. Really.

Second. Please don’t have a snow day and go on field trips to historical homes, museums, etc. Please. DO NOT DO THIS. Virtual field trips, yes. Somewhere outside without a lot of people or things people touch, sure. Inside with surfaces touched by strangers, avoid them.

Third- less is more. Don’t let the perfect be hte enemy of the good, you know that. Pick a couple of things and just do them. Don’t try to create a perfect schedule. You do want to have a rhythm to your day, some structure and organization is beneficial. I’m just saying do not try to schedule every minute with schoolish activities and try to stick to that. Do not do all the things on this list.

Okay, my personal favourite: Amblesideonline’s Help program, free, always free, always will be free, no registration required, it’s been around since Hurrican Katrina and is regularly updated, and was put together by real, experienced homeschooling moms. https://amblesideonline.org/HELP.shtml

Others IHaven’t necessarily used, I just collected them like the Magpie I am and am sharing them for your perusal. Be choosy.
