Learning resources for kids stuck at home during coronavirus epidemic

As more schools shut down and parents seek online resources to keep their children’s minds engaged, we thought it might be helpful to gather some in this article. Planning a learning day will help reduce the stress and anxiety for parents and kids. Even if your daily homeschool schedule is very loose – a bit of organization will give your day a framework.

Kids will not be learning at the same pace as in a typical school day, but it is ok as long as they learn something new every day, and they have fun on the way.

So, if you haven’t received a specific education plan from your kid’s school for the closure period, use these resources as inspiration to make one yourself.

Math resources:

Khan Academy – Free online courses, lessons and practice.

Wuzzit Trouble – for  number sense, problem solving and creative and critical thinking skills

Math Snacks – collection of entertaining math games

Marble Math – to practice mental math

DragonBox Algebra 12+ advanced algebraic concepts

Reading and writing apps:

Marvel Hero Tales – an educational app that embeds vocabulary and grammar practice into a game. You can find it both in the Apple Store and the Play Store.

Weirdwood Manor – an interactive fantasy storybook

Middle School Confidential – graphic novels written by anti-bullying activist Annie Fox. This story is about a group of friends who help bolster one another’s self-esteem in the face of teasing, bullying, or mere self-doubt

Reading Rewards – a reading tracking app in which kids log their reading time to earn incentive points toward rewards, which parents or teachers can determine.

Global Digital Library – Digital storybooks and other reading materials easily accessible from mobile phones or computers.

Science:

Discovery EducationLessons about viruses and outbreaks for different grade levels.

NASA Kids’ Club: They have made their entire collection of images, sounds and video available and publicly searchable online: 140,000 photos and other resources available for you to see.

Creative time:

DIY.org – Creative Challenges – an educational app and learning community where kids can access a collection of project ideas and how-to videos.

Wizard School – combines videos, drawing, and interactive challenges to get kids engaging with material that interests them.

Lily – Playful Music Creation – a digital music composition app for iOS and Android.
