Looking for distance activities to send home with your students and parents (or email to them)? These at home learning packets are perfect for while you are teaching your students from home. They are also a great purchase for parents and homeschoolers who want some more activities to do at home with their children.
These activities can be used as homework packets, no-prep lessons, sub plans, enrichment activities, homeschool lessons, and more!
Each activity includes an optional lesson plan that can be utilized to teach the children about the concepts inside the packet. These packets are formatted just like our best-selling Ready To Go Sub Plans. Our lesson plans are always simple enough that anyone, regardless of teaching experience, can use them.
