Remember the days when you might have thought homeschooling was a concept only hippies or recluses could embrace? When you thought, “no way would I keep my kids home all day”? Does it seem like a long time ago that you thought, “I’m no educator, I’m just a parent”? For many of us, those days are over. They are a thing of the past. Our new reality means our children are home with us during the day, all day. Their schools are closed. Their teachers are now faces on a computer screen, and you are the teacher’s assistant.
In this series of articles, I’ve curated a list of resources and tools for learning and teaching from home, covering Arts, Books, Cooking, Crafts, Exercise, Math, Mindfulness, Music, Science, Sports, Virtual field trips and Yoga. You may want to embrace these even on the other side of the pandemic! This week’s features: Math & Art.
