Parents of school-aged children: Finding yourselves overwhelmed with the number of educational resources you’re seeing out there? (All well-intentioned, of course, but utterly overwhelming.) We know we are. Which is why we breathed a sigh of relief when Marie Thoma of the University of Maryland’s Department of Family Science, School of Public Health reached out to share her colleague’s latest resource with us – a compilation of resources to help families and educators.
UMD’s COViD-19 Resources for Families & Educators
The Department of Family Science, School of Public Health at the University of Maryland has complied a set of resources to help families and educators during these COViD-19 times. “These run the gamut from helping children cope emotionally with the COVID-19 pandemic to educational resources for parents to use at home with their children.” View this great guide here!
No more jumping, skipping and hopping around to different places, losing your track along the way to finding a new science / you-name-it resource for your child. It’s all in here. One resource.
Full disclosure: In addition to being an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Science in the School of Public Health at the University of Maryland, Marie’s also a dear Route One Fun reader, local mamma and dear friend of ours, so we’re happy to share any/all knowledge she drops our way. Thank you to Marie and the University of Maryland’s Department of Family Science, School of Public Health team. We appreciate you and your commitment to our local communities!
