MEGA List of Free Math Resources For Home Educators!
The lockdown has had parents all across the globe doing something they never thought they would be doing, homeschooling. Since the very beginning, demand has grown for distance learning educational material. The great thing is, we all have the internet. The problem is, it is the internet!
Inundated with sources upon sources, finding the right and most suitable programs, curriculums, worksheets etc. sometimes just adds more fuel to the fire. You want to ensure your child continues to excel and does not fall behind but you have no idea how to keep them engaged and what the schools have given you doesn’t seem to be working…
Or maybe you were home educating before all of this and are just looking for new resources? Whatever your reason, this page will surely help you out.
