Pull out your spare change and teach the kids how to count money. Play "store" with them and let them shop for groceries in your pantry with a set budget.

For language arts, Reading Eggs is a program that can engage kids in activities around reading and language arts.

YouTube is one of my favorite resources. We love Operation Ouch to learn about our body and how it works (science/health). We also watch a lot of "how it's made" videos. Ie. How to make sugar from sugar cane.

Tip: When searching for a topic add "for kids" to get more kid friendly material.  Ie. Gravity for kids.



This interactive video game is FREE and covers topics throughout history. We usually did one chapter together per day for a week of a history topic.

Mission US: Free
