Resources for Educating Kids at Home
(or at least keeping them occupied)

Over the past few days resources for good tools for education our kids while stuck at home have been flowing from parent to parent online. I’ve grabbed just a handful here. If there is anything that you think is a must-share please email me at president@bayfarmptsa.org and I will add it to this list when possible. Much love to everyone. I hope you are all staying safe and sane. ~ Claire
