This post may contain affiliate links.

Have you found yourself suddenly homeschooling?  Or, maybe you are teacher needing resources for distance learning?  There are many different reasons, but if you are there, don’t panic!  There are so many amazing resources online and that you can easily do from home.  Today I have complied a huge list of at home and online learning ideas to help you out.at home and online learning websites

Things are all in chaos in the world right now.  I know may schools have been closing everywhere due to the Coronavirus.  Since I have been  homeschooling for over a decade, I thought I would put together some at home and online learning ideas.

This is for those of you who suddenly have your kids at home with you and have no idea what to do with them! But this is also for all of you who have been doing it for a while!  These are great resources recommended by homeschooling moms and public school teachers.

A few important tips for those figuring this new thing out

See my whole Homeschool Support Category.

  1. Set a school schedule.  You kids need to know that during these hours you are doing learning. It makes everything better when there are boundaries, I promise!
  2. Be flexible.  School at home is never going to be just like school at school.  Let your kids do things in the order they want.  Let them read a little longer or experiment a little longer. If one subject gets missed one day, that’s ok, just keep pushing through the next day.
  3. Stay calm, if you can.  It’s going to be a big change for everyone. The house will be messier and noisier than normal. You’ll have less time for you. Everyone will feel out of sorts for a bit. But, you’ll get into a rhythm and things will be ok.
