I, like most of you, am worried about how I’m going to be able to entertain the kids during this time and ensure they don’t get into trouble while I’m at work (or busy with house chores-although to be fair I get them involved in house work as much as possible) (I bought a safe this morning to hide all their electronics in!)

I’ve listed a few of the websites that are offering free trials until May for homeschoolers and teachers alike. I know that some parents may feel overwhelmed with the number of websites out there; each website has its pros and cons and some are better than others so I’ve selected a few to focus on this week and will be adding to this list periodically. If you’d like a tutorial on how these websites work please follow my YouTube channel, I post videos each evening, look forward to seeing you there!
