Schools out… for the summer?

Last week, Gov. Gavin Newsom said most schools will not return to class this spring due to the school closures associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

The closures have caused teachers and parents to quickly put together resources, schedules and plans to keep students on track with learning goals. In San Diego, the San Diego Unified School District announced a partnership with KPBS and the San Diego County Office of Education to continue to provide learning resources for its students. The partnership will include a TV broadcast and an online component. 

The TV programming will air on KPBS 2 from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. The content will be aired according to grade levels (6-8 a.m., grades TK through 3; 8 a.m.-1 p.m., grades 4 through 8; 1-6 p.m., grades 9 through 12). The digital component will provide access to a library of free educational videos, lesson plans and training sessions. Schools are also continuing to provide food for students in need.

 

Having students and young children at home provides time to bond as a family, but it also means parents and caregivers are responsible for keeping everyone busy and engaged. Below are some resources to help better structure the time without it turning into a movie marathon day after day.

 

VIRTUAL TOURS

Consider taking a virtual tour. While you may not be able to physically go to a museum or theme park right now, some are offering virtual tours at https://bit.ly/2JbidYw. Try checking out of these national parks in California virtually: Death Valley, Channel Islands, Joshua Tree, Redwood, Sequoia, Yosemite. 

The San Diego Zoo has a full webpage dedicated to children that include facts and videos about different animals, activities, and games. The Women’s Museum of California has digital exhibits available where students can learn about notable women of California, women in the military and more.

 

MOVIES AND SHOWS

Universal Pictures is releasing some of its movies early on digital platforms, including Trolls World Tour,” which will be available Friday. Disney+ released Frozen 2” earlier than planned on its streaming platform earlier this month.

In addition to movies, you can watch Broadway musicals,educational shows on Netflix, and live cameras from aquariums. 

 

EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

Some educational companies are offering free subscriptions during the school closures and Scholastic is releasing free courses daily through its “Learn from Home” website. The site offers projects for students related to reading, history and more. Its projects are divided by grade-level.

 

You can also take advantage of digital access to San Diego County libraries, which provides access to e-books and audiobooks.

 

ARTS

NASA is providing access to its digital images through this website. Paris museums have put images from their collections online. The Metropolitan Opera in New York is streaming live performances nightly.

 

Consider turning to Instagram accounts for arts and craft projects. These teachers and parents share ideas on making things and fun activities that can provide a break from a screen.

But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called dr unity and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and after 28hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends.

When I found Dr. OSOFO I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another man. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr.OSOFO through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what  he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me  than before. Ever since Dr. OSOFO helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. OSOFO to anyone in need of help. Email: osofo.48hoursolutioncenter@gmail.com    Call him or add him on whatsapp via:  2349065749952
