There’s a LOT going on in the world right now. With the threat of COV-19 causing school closures in the United States and Europe, as well as the extended March Break announcement for public schools in Ontario, it’s leaving a lot of non-homeschooling parents scratching their heads on how to educate their children amidst this waiting period.
I homeschool all three of my children, so the biggest distress for them is that they don’t get an extra week off like the rest of their friends. I understand this is a huge issue for many parents who have full time jobs, or others who want their kids to continue schooling. The good news is, there is an app or a website for that, and some companies have been extremely generous by offering complimentary access during this time.
We use many online resources, and some of these programs have actually released special FREE access offers because of Corona, in an effort to help parents and teachers continuing the education of children amidst this waiting period. Karma yoga is the act of providing service, and this is compilation is my contribution for the day. Hoping to provide more resources in the coming days as we all get through this rough patch on a global scale.
