We have started compiling a list of activities and videos here for teachers to share with students and parents alike to help keep those brains moving during these difficult times. I know many states (ours included – Illinois) are on a “shelter-in-place” directive by their governor – and I believe every state has suspended schools for the time being. The list below has some great videos from our authors and friends, free worksheet links, and links to other free online activities. Please share this link with your friends, students, parents, colleagues, and on social media. We will all get through this!
*We will try to update this on a regular basis, please check back.*
