From Life Lessons with love, here’s a little something for every parent who’s struggling to divine a curriculum for their kids during lockdown: a collection of brilliant creatives with simple and free activities to engage your child’s imagination.
1. Let Oliver Jeffers read you a story here.
2. Become an illustrator with Jarrett J. Krosoczka here.
Tune in for daily art lessons from author/illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka—author of Punk Farm, Lunch Lady, Jedi Academy, and the young adult graphic memoir Hey, Kiddo, which was a National Book Award Finalist.
3. Take on regular Quarantine Art Assignments here.
4. Encourage your kids to write about their feelings here.
Join author Tammar Stein (THE SIX DAY HERO) as she talks about living in Singapore, and how she's dealt with feelings during her own experiences with quarantines and cancellations over the past two months. Put on your writer's hat and channel your feelings into writing through letters, using description and observation to talk about unusual times, changes, and the feelings that accompany them.
5. Read for free at Oxford Owl.
Oxford Owl have released their free eBooks collection, developed for children aged 3–11 years old. They are making even more eBooks available for the duration of UK school closures, so that your child has more to read.
