Being stuck at home really isn’t the end of the world. There’s so much we can do! Here are my top things I did AND the top things I have my students do at home.
- It’s the perfect time to do all those home renovations. Redesign your rooms by moving furniture around, and donate furniture and items that you don’t want anymore. You can also spruce up your home by painting your cabinets/walls/etc. or planting a mini garden!
- Spring cleaning. Yes, use this time being stuck at home to deep clean your house. You’ll feel good knowing that your house is sparkly clean and smells really good.
- Bake! I definitely need to do this more and will be making more blog posts on baking! Leave a comment for any recommendations on what I should bake.
- Read a book! Get off your phone and dive into a book. The last book I finished was Educated by Tara Westover and I am currently reading Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown.
- Exercise! If you’re following me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing morning workouts at 9AM with Remi and Nate live on Remi’s Instagram! There are so many companies and people who are doing live workout sessions on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube. You can do yoga with Y7 or Corepower yoga, pilates with Pure Barre, boxing with Rumble, or get a work out in with Orange Theory Fitness. No gym, no problem!
At home with the kids
I’m sure all you parents are loving having your kids at home, but will also like them to be productive. Here are my top free websites I use for my students while they’re at home.
- GoNoodle : This is a fun website for kids to get their wiggles out!
- Newela: Kids need to sign up for this, but it is free! This website provides children with current events that they can read at their reading level, provides short quizzes to check reading comprehension, and a prompt to get kids writing.
- Audible by Amazon: How great is this! Amazon is allowing kids to listen to books for free!!!
- Art for Kids Hub: This is a fun Youtube channel where kids learn how to draw their favorite characters. I do this with my students virtually through Zoom. I share my screen, so we can all watch the video together while drawing.
There’s a loooot you can do at home, but these are just a few that I’ve been working on for myself and with my students. Try these out this week and let me know what you liked the most!
Be safe, stay healthy, and take care of yourselves friends!
With Beauty, Grace, and Love
