Here's a growing list of helpful online learning tools (that are free) to help the kids (and parents!) over the next several weeks.

VT
The folks at VT curated an entire list of education companies offering their services for free during the pandemic.

Scholastic Learn at Home
The editors at Scholastic Classroom Magazines curated day-to-day projects to keep kids busy, learning, and entertained. Divided by grade level, each day's worth of activities has "four separate learning experiences, each built around a thrilling, meaningful story or video. Kids can do them on their own, with their families, or with their teachers."

MommyPoppins
This website is the result of local parents in different regions coming together to share their activities, events, tips, resources in one spot. In this case, they made a Coronavirus Guide for Parents, with hundreds of crafts, games, even tutoring services. Just make sure you're browsing under the right location (New Jersey, New York City, Connecticut, Westchester, and Long Island are all there!)

GoNoodle
This website encourages movement and mindfulness at home with videos and games created by child development experts. Yep, it's free!

ScaryMommy
Like MommyPoppins, ScaryMommy is a community of millenial moms sharing resources and information on all sorts of parenting levels. Here's a teacher-created guide for temporarily home-schooling your kids, with a suggested schedule you can use as you see fit (and more resources)!

We Are Teachers
What better place to get help than straight from the source? Check out this list of easy, hands-on activities the whole family can do. But if you want your Amazon Alexa's help, you should check out these educational skills to try.

This massive list of resources from the teacher community is organized in a spreadsheet, and is updated every few hours.

Altice
Our parent company is offering Altice Advantage 30 Mbps broadband for free for 60 days to any new customer, for households with K-12 and/or college students who may be displaced.

Parents, you can learn too! Here are 450 ivy league courses you can take online right now, for free. Seriously.
