Anybody who has done a big trip with kids will know that it can be challenging to keep up their education and to take on the role of both teacher and parent at the same time!
With the right tools and planning, though, it can become a whole lot easier! With more of us educating the kids at home right now, we thought it would be helpful to put together a list of some awesome online resources to help the kids learn from home.
Khan Academy: This not-for-profit offers video lessons for every and age subject (mums and dad included) and they even have a Khan Academy Kids app for ages 2-7. With many schools currently closed, they are even offering useful daily schedules to help streamline your family’s learning.
