Games with Playing Cards:
Passion Project/Genius Hour - Have your child research something they are really interested in - it could be about science or history...a question they've always had...the ideas are endless.
This article contains easy steps to get started!
Social Studies - Have your child learn more about history - Here is a link to the standards by grade level: https://www.cde.ca.gov/be/st/ss/documents/histsocscistnd.pdf
Scholastic Homebase- - https://kids.scholastic.com/kids/games/
- Take Virtual Field Trips - Just google and there are many! Museums, zoos, 7 Wonders of the World, etc
- Write Letters to friends and family and mail them! Write letters to seniors in retirement homes since they can't have visitors right now - mail them!
- Learn a 2nd language - lots of apps available for you to try! Sign Language is a good one to learn!
- Have students cook with you - teach them about fractions, reading a recipe, following directions, etc.
- Learn the basics to run a household - budget, wash clothes, take care of the lawn, balance the checkbook, etc.
Create a Schedule - this will help with everyone's mental health! :) Your child shouldn't be doing 6-7 hours of academic work. Break up the learning with a variety of activities to help them focus.
