We thought we would look into fun resources available to help keep our children’s brains ticking over during the school close-downs.  There are sites that have started to open their doors to free educational help.  I know we won’t be making too many friends with the kids, I am sure they will thank us in the future………………………….HAH!

So we crawled through the web to find sites that offer free help.  Here are some of them:


To help students stay fresh on their academics, Scholastic set up a free “Learn at Home” website appropriate for students from Pre-kindergarten to sixth grade and higher. Each grade level gets access to five days’ worth of content, which will occupy about three hours of time. The organization is working on additional courses for 15 more days. Find more by clicking here!


Children’s programming brand PBS Kids is offering educational games, songs, and videos, starring popular characters like Daniel Tiger, Clifford, and Arthur. The site also has a daily newsletter that shares tips and activities to help kids play and learn at home.

Learning site Khan Academy has created several resources for parents whose children are unable to be in a formal classroom right now. The site offers daily schedules for children by grade level. It also offers instructions on how to best use the site for parents who are new to the concept.


With over 4,000 posts that cover a huge variety of topics, I know it can be daunting to know where to start exploring 123 Homeschool 4 Me. So, let me give you a personal tour!
