Now that most of the world is at home for the foreseeable future, many parents are now faced with homeschooling their kids. A lot of schools have online learning already set up, but many of us do not. Technically, Mazzy and Harlow’s school is on spring break right now, so they announced that online learning will begin on March 30th. I’m not sure what that will entail exactly or how much time it will take up. I just know there are a lot of hours to fill in a day. Particularly when you need your kids occupied so you can work from home.

I’ve seen a lot of graphics going around with lists of online educational resources, so I thought it would be helpful to compile them all in one place, with links. If you know all these already, well then I am compiling this list for myself.
