There are many parents right now working from home, but also (unexpectedly) have their children at home with them. It is hard to know what your kids should be working on and being able to prepare something everyday is very challenging. We all want our kids to be learning, but it is hard to know what to teach. We’ve created something to help you feel confident that your children are continuing to be challenged and learning at this time as you begin to homeschool. Academics are important, but so are hugs and cuddles with your kids. Find a balance, and have some fun!
Our printables are teacher created and curriculum based. Best of all, they are kid friendly and fun! They are designed for children in grades k-3, but the ideas and activities are a great review for older children, and a beneficial introduction for younger children.
There are 6 printable sheets and we’ve got you covered in all subject areas! All activities can be done at home and require little to no preparation and very few materials.
There are many ways to use the sheets. Each sheet provides a variety of activities. Many of which children can complete independently. I personally love the fact that they give children choice.
I have my kids choose one square from each subject each weekday. That way I know they are learning a variety of information and working on all of their school subjects. Some activities only take a few minutes, others carry on for a full afternoon. Some of the activities have even lead to further investigation and turned into a week long project. Either way children are learning and excited about learning!
By allowing children to choose their daily activities they are guiding their own learning when you homeschool/ do distant learning. On days where there may not be as much time, math and language are always a good area to focus. Print what you need and share with others who could use it. We hope you find them helpful!
