Homework is not required during Stephen Foster’s closure, so students will not get credit for any of the work done at home. However, here are some FREE online activities to keep you and your child engaged with fun and educational content during this break. Now is the perfect time to encourage your kids to study the topics covered or will be covered in class, or better yet, explore subjects that pique their interest.
We’ve also created a list of other FREE online activities during this break. Free Online Activities For Kids During School Closure, Free Books & Storytime Activities, Free Virtual Field Trips, and Free Online Activities For Teens & Adults.
