The best at-home learning resources for kids!
These at-home learning resources have been our favorites during this time at home. There are many other great resources out there if these are not a good fit for your child. During this time, it has become obvious that every situation is different. While my kids have not really missed a beat and have gone through a lot of their lessons using Google Classroom, I know that is not the case for everyone.
If you are needing some extra support for your child or you are trying to figure out what to do for learning at home, you will enjoy this list!
Instead of trying them all at once, try one or two at a time so that it is not a lot at once.

Other Great Resources to Have for At-Home Learning
Drawing and Coloring Books
My mom ordered the boys some drawing books and Claire a coloring book. Having these on hand has been a great go-to activity for us.
Having a timer can be so helpful to use! I have loved using one for quiet time but you could also use it to help section off time for different activities.
During the first week of school, I ordered this 3 shelf cart and it has been perfect for our schooling. I love that it can hold what we need for school and keeps everything contained. Plus, we can roll it into the closet if we do not want it out.
Have a central location for your markers, crayons, and so on. We love this art caddy.
Finally, remember to have grace with yourself and your kids! This is a time to remember to let go of the stress about academics and focus on making the most of the time together.
Learning at home takes time to adjust to but there are tons of resources that help make it a little easier. What would you add to the list?
