Given the status of many of our school districts, it looks like many of us will be home for a bit! While I know many schools are sending home curriculum, I thought I would put together a list of resources suggested by many of you just in case you are looking for a little something extra! I have a variety of FREE and PAID Learning Resources for School at Home listed below!
Here’s a list of awesome companies offering free subscriptions to learning resources during this time!
PINTEREST: There is a WEALTH of info on Pinterest and many of my homeschool friends say they get several project ideas on here!
CURRICULUM ASSOCIATES:This company has resources available for extended school closure for grades K through 8! They are printable packets for math and reading.
KHAN ACADEMY:Free online resources for all ages! They have a page specifically for the current virus right HERE.
BUSY TODDLER: Susie is the queen of at home activities!!!! She has so many FREE ideas and actives for toddlers!
STARFALL: Free learning games! This can be done on the computer or your tablet! My son has used this in school!
GO NOODLE: Really great for “gym” time! Free movement videos to get kids up and moving. Great for rainy days too!
ABCya GAMES: A variety of educational games and activities for Pre-K to 6+. Great for tablets! Free, or a paid premium feature.
COSMIC KIDS YOGA: We LOVE Cosmic Kids!!!! It really helps the kids focus and helps with mindfulness, too! My kids will easily do this for an hour. It essentially story telling with yoga!

HOMER: Another great learning app for kids 2-8. They offer a free trial!
ADVENTURE ACADEMY: A digital learning program for ages 8-13! You can get your first month FREE.
READING EGGS: A fun way to read! This app came highly recommended. You can get a free trial, as well.
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ON DISNEY+: Great for science. I think this is more for older kiddos, though! Of course requires a Disney+ subscription.
BBC EARTH AND PLANET EARTH ON NETFLIX: Also great for science, but again might be more for older kiddos! Requires a Netflix subscription.
WORKBOOKS/HANDS ON ACTIVITES
I got a variety of workbook for my kids too, not just for this situation but also have on hand!
