Educating your child at home doesn't have to be a game of tug of war. Try utilizing some of the free educational resources below: 

Elementary Students

Homeschool Pop

Created by a homeschool dad, this free Youtube channel is designed for elementary school kids, and covers everything from science and math to history. We have been using it for months now, and my child learned U.S. history, state capitals, and civics.

This educational online Youtube learning channel will teach your child state capitals, birds, resources, and U.S. geography all sung by rapping birds! 

Elementary & Middle School

Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere. Their Youtube videos help students succeed in math, biology, chemistry, physics, history, economics, finance, grammar, and many other topics. 

Additional Tips For Parents

Tip #1 Check out The Dollar Tree teachers section. You'll find tons of lesson plans for grades Preschool to Sixth! I have been using these plans for years during the summer months to avoid the "Summer Slide." You will find writing prompts, reading and comprehension, and math and grammar workbooks.

Tip #2 Play plenty of board games with your kids that involve spelling and counting. It's learning disguised as fun! It's also a great way to bond, and kill some time.

Tip #3 Cook with your child, tell them to measure the ingredients, set the oven temperature, again learning incognito!

Tip #4 Try incorporating your child's interests in every lesson, consider it a pathway to learning! For example, my nine year old loves history, much of his reading, comprehension, and writing centers around his favorite topic.

Tip #5 Make your lessons media friendly. In addition to educational Youtube channels, try watching plenty of documentaries that reinforce lessons learned while reading on Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+.

Tip #6 Be patient, dedicated, and in tune with your kid. Children learn through play, they even when it appears they aren't paying attention. Just know that in the end they are learning at a more rapid pace one on one, at their level with the most dedicated teacher in existence! 

Consider this to be a special time for families to learn, grow, and bond together! Stay safe San Diego!
