The activities in this post are great to use while at home during the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. As a certified K-5 educator who taught kindergarten and first grade, I am sharing what we are doing in our home to stay on top of curriculum while quarantined at home. Of course, you can use them anytime of year in the home or classroom, too!
PLEASE NOTE: Life is busy as a work-at-home / stay-at-home/ homeschooling mama right now, so my directions here will be brief! Please follow me on Instagram @babblingabby where I will be sharing my daily activities and saving them in a story highlight!

Practical Living Skills for Preschoolers
With all the ‘healthy at home’ time we’ve spent together lately, the house has definitely taken a back burner! With six people here, messes and laundry can pile up quickly. But, because we’re spending so much time here, having some sense of order became a priority today as the disorder was overwhelming me. Combined with the two-and-a-half weeks of social distancing we’ve already had, plus the addition of another thirty days…I knew I couldn’t let the mess linger much longer without losing my mind 😉
So, today’s school from home turned into Practical Living Skills for Preschoolers. My 4- and 6-year-old helped me tidy up the house instead of our typical academic-based schedule. I decided to create a chore checklist to help them keep track of what we were working on together.
Helping at Home Checklist
While a printed checklist is entirely unnecessary, I think it’s helpful to provide a visual for what we were going to do. It also gives them exposure to a different kind of text (a list).
They’re both pretty good helpers as it is, and they were very eager to work through this with me today – especially because it meant I was going to help them clean their rooms and they got to use spray bottles! #littlethings
Did they veer from their lists to color and play outside and watch TV? Yes, they totally did. But, they really did a great job helping and I was able to accomplish several things on my list, too. Win-win.
Learn at Home Checklist
I can’t be the only one who needs to pivot from academics at home on occasion, so I created two other checklists. The list below is a Learn at Home checklist. It suggests activities for you to do at home with your child that aren’t necessarily academic-based. A great go-to if you run out of things to do!
By Myself Checklist
The idea behind this checklist was to provide ideas and guidance for kids who are capable of occupying themselves for a period of time. This would be great to give to your child while you take a call, need an hour or so to accomplish a task, or just want to drink your glass of wine in peace and quiet 😉 #kidding
