Top 5 Online Resources For Homeschooling In The Wake of The CoronaVirus

Updated: Mar 13, 2020

This post is for everyone who has recently found themselves homeschooling not by choice but by a school shutdown. Some school districts may have a developed plan for online courses for students to continue their education at home. However if this isn't the case for you or you are looking for ideas to cover or supplement your kids' education, look no further.

I have put together a list of what, in my opinion, are the best educational online courses / apps for your home education. As a family who has homeschooled two kids for the past 5 years, we usually find ourselves traveling more often than not. With that said, we don't really like to bring a suitcase full of school books. These are our go to online courses. I hope that you can benefit from them as well.

Acelus - This is your one stop shop for a full curriculum. It is an app that covers core subjects K-12 and includes extracurricular such as fine arts, coding, and social/emotional health. Children take a quick non-intimidating assessment for each subject to give them effective lessons. My kids have found the easy to follow lesson videos are engaging and just the right amount of time. It's a subscription based program and for $25 per month, you will not find a better deal on a solid whole subject curriculum.

Mystery Science - We have been using Mystery Science for the past 4 years. This is geared for grades k-6. They recently put up a website for all the school closures including free on-the- go science lessons that can be done any where. Their fun engaging lessons will hook your kids into learning and wanting to explore more. Doug
