Home Learning: Elementary: This is a fantastic resource that provides an Optional Daily Schedule for elementary students. It has suggested time frames with the learner's day broken down into diverse, flexible, motivating, and fun educational activities that address the learner's social, academic, emotional, and language development. It provides suggestions for addressing the core subject areas of mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies. It includes a tab of Optional Academic Activities by Content Area. It also includes a tab for Additional Resources. (Some of these resources, I will highlight separately.)

This learning learning site is provided by PWCS. This learning page is meant to support learners and their families, not to overwhelm them, during this health crisis. Parents are encouraged to preview the the Home Learning resource before using them with your learners.
