Do yourself a favor and explore the Scholastic website where all of these videos, posts and more available. Supplement what your kiddos are already learning and seeing at their schools and in the community, especially during this time of turmoil. Let me know what you find to be helpful by using the hashtag #LearningFunWithLaura. If you find something particularly good that I haven't linked to, feel free to let me know.
