If you are like so many of us and have your entire family at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and you are wondering how in the world you are going to get through this time together know that you probably have on hand all that you need to keep everyone sane, engaged, and “homeschooled”.
Also know up front that you do not have to recreate the school environment (aka “School at Home”).

The rest will follow naturally with a few extra bonus suggestions from P.L.A.Y. to help get you started!
