Learning From Home | Aprendiendo desde casa

As we embark on school closure for COVID-19, we’re planning to post resources for families here on this page to support preschoolers while at home. Please check back often!

A medida que experimentamos el cierre de la escuela por el COVID-19, planeamos publicar recursos para las familias aquí en esta página para apoyar a los preescolares y sus familias en el hogar. Por favor, visite la página con frecuencia!

=================================

SCREEN TIME SUGGESTIONS: Suggested less than two hours of screen time per day. We are looking for shows that demonstrate positive relationships, avoid sarcasm, and move more slowly than mainstream cartoons. If the screen is blinking and changing rapidly, it’s too fast! We want the show to move at a pace that reflects real life. Steer clear of mainstream TV; it’s too violent and provocative. For more info and research, check out The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch.
