As I write this, there are tens of thousands of people in Houston’s shelters. Some of my homeschool friends have lost everything while some are displaced. I had a conversation with a mom today who is in crisis mode and not able to homeschool normally. Some days are like that. Weeks are like that too. Maybe there isn’t a crisis, some days mom just need a break. These apps will help!
For days you can’t homeschool but want educational options for your kids: technology is your friend. There are so many apps out there… and many are for younger kids. I tried to find a list for our older kids. Here are some educational apps to help when homeschooling isn’t normal.
