Khan Academy’s library of trusted, standards-aligned practice and lessons covers math K-12 through early college, grammar, science, history, AP®, SAT®, and more. It’s all free for learners and teachers.
• Have them read an hour per day. Even though libraries are closed you can still download e-books. Librivox has free public domain audiobooks. Find a great classic for them (and you) to listen to.
• I wouldn’t worry too much about screen time right now. This is a difficult time for us all, and the kids are trying to find a new, albeit temporary, normal. Your kids will be fine. If you just can’t say “yes” to one more minute of Minecraft, you could make it sort of educational, and maybe pique their curiosity as well. Search for “virtual tour” on Google for whatever your child is interested in, or try one of our favorites:

If I can help any of you in any way, feel free to contact me directly through my personal email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Above all, please, please give yourselves a huge break. Are your kids fed? Do they feel safe and loved? If so, you’ve got this.
