Yesterday, Montgomery County PA schools and daycares closed for the next two weeks due to coronavirus concerns.   Other schools in the area in Maryland, New Jersey, and Ohio are also closing with more to follow.  

Kids are now beginning distance learning online, though we are waiting for instructions from my kids' teachers.   


If your kids are stuck at home and you're looking for learning activities to keep them busy, check out these 50 educational websites for kids when schools are closed.
