Resources for Online Learning during Covid-19 Social Distancing.

This past week has brought on many changes for each of us. One of those has been how to keep our children learning while schools have closed for at least 6 weeks.

As each of us navigate the homeschool experience, several resources keep popping up from companies that are offering services free of charge.  I thought it might be helpful to have these resources listed in one place. The list is comprised of the resources I have come across during the past week or so.  Hopefully you find some of them useful.

Some that don’t fall into the homeschool category, but are important are the following:

Here is the list of “homeschool help” resources.  If you find a new one, let me know and I will add it onto the list. 

  • This one has many different resources and is a pretty comprehensive list of some great free resources can be found on this website:  http://www.amazingeducationalresources.com
  • From Audible.com: With all of us experiencing varying degrees of social distancing and school closures, we have created something that we hope makes our customers’ lives a little easier. At stories.audible.com, you will find hundreds of our titles available completely free. The collection has been handpicked by our editors and is a mix of stories to entertain, engage, and inform young people, ages 0–18. 
  •  www.musicplayonline.com is a fantastic interactive music website for elementary ages (and probably older). All students can access it now for free.
