The Stay At Home Resource Guide

 

First and foremost: how are you doing? Please know that as we write and provide resources, we just want to help. But we also understand that this is an extremely stressful time, and no one is holding you to a perfect standard. Overnight you’ve become a homeschool teacher, who is trying to do your day job, teach your kids, and remain sane. We are all in this together, and our goal is how to best serve you during this time. So, we’ve gathered together different educational materials to assist you and your kids on this journey. Even at home, we’re all still learning together.


Educational


Books-a-Million, of course, has thousands of resources in store and online for you.

  • All in-stock online orders ship within 24 hours!
  • We’re doing Curbside Pickup/Buy Online Pickup in Store,
  • We have tons of workbooks ready for your stay at home headquarters.
  • Brain Quest has a whole year of questions and activities that align with common core standards.
  • Summer Bridge requires just fifteen minutes a day to keep school skills sharp and follows state standards.
  • Spectrum is designed to be effective and engaging, and divides workbooks and flashcards by different skills and grades.

Recess!

There are all different ways to learn about the world.

STEM

  • Code.org will be offering Code Break, a live weekly webcast where their team will teach children at home while school is closed, and a weekly challenge to engage students of all abilities, even those without computers.
  • The Kennedy Space Center is offering a ton of different activities for kids of all ages during this time! They are doing Facebook Live videos multiple times a week.

Museums

Animals


Mostly: take a breath. Sing along while Garth Brooks livestreams his concert. Curl up with your favorite Squishmallow and watch the Smithosian’s 24 hour live stream of giant pandas. Maybe even pick up Where the Crawdads Sing, which was widely agreed in our office to be the best book of 2019. You can do this. We can do this.
