COVID-19 Educational Resources

Read Time: 2 minutes

In these crazy times parents are looking for, among other things, good ways to occupy their childrens’ time in a wholesome fashion. I didn’t want my childrens’ learning to just stop. To move the ball forward, at least a little, I have currated a list of education related resources to help in that process. My goal was to find things that are in the spirit of fun and learning. Nothing here is officially endorsed by me. I only provide these links because our family has found them helpful, I hope you do to. Stay safe, stay sane.
