Learning Resources for Your Child During School Closures

Are you trying to figure out how to help your child keep learning during school closings? Some schools have provided materials to work with your child at home. My children's schools have provided that to me. Unfortunately, few families can take advantage of that opportunity, because they have no access to electronic devices and no study materials from their schools. Here are some tips I have found to be helpful, and hopefully, it helps you all.

Electronic Devices
If you don't have access to a laptop, tablet, or IPad for your child to do their schoolwork, you can let your child's school know or even the district.


It's geared more toward Pre-K to third graders. Covers a wide range of topics, like mathematics, and language arts, some of it is free, but if you want more, then you would have to pay a low monthly fee.

PBS Kids
They have a PBS kids video app that's accessible from a tablet, cell phone, or any device that allows you to stream on-demand learning videos and can watch it live-streamed any time of the day.

Mystery Science
For now, during school closings, it is offering free Science lessons. It's well known for Kindergarteners to fifth graders.

It is a free app that teaches younger kids from the ages of 5 to 7 how to code and make their interactive games and stories, and once they complete, they can move on to the regular Scratch.

This is a free learning program for kids in the Pre-K till 6 grade. It has a wide variety of games teaching different subjects, such as numbers and letters, just for example.

It offers free access to kids from Kindergarteners through the Twelfth grade. It covers all subject areas like Math, Reading, Writing, Science, History, Arts, Music, Health, and Technology.
