Schools out… for the summer?

Last week, Gov. Gavin Newsom said most schools will not return to class this spring due to the school closures associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

The closures have caused teachers and parents to quickly put together resources, schedules and plans to keep students on track with learning goals. In San Diego, the San Diego Unified School District announced a partnership with KPBS and the San Diego County Office of Education to continue to provide learning resources for its students. The partnership will include a TV broadcast and an online component. 

The TV programming will air on KPBS 2 from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. The content will be aired according to grade levels (6-8 a.m., grades TK through 3; 8 a.m.-1 p.m., grades 4 through 8; 1-6 p.m., grades 9 through 12). The digital component will provide access to a library of free educational videos, lesson plans and training sessions. Schools are also continuing to provide food for students in need.

 

Having students and young children at home provides time to bond as a family, but it also means parents and caregivers are responsible for keeping everyone busy and engaged. Below are some resources to help better structure the time without it turning into a movie marathon day after day.

 

VIRTUAL TOURS

Consider taking a virtual tour. While you may not be able to physically go to a museum or theme park right now, some are offering virtual tours at https://bit.ly/2JbidYw. Try checking out of these national parks in California virtually: Death Valley, Channel Islands, Joshua Tree, Redwood, Sequoia, Yosemite. 

The San Diego Zoo has a full webpage dedicated to children that include facts and videos about different animals, activities, and games. The Women’s Museum of California has digital exhibits available where students can learn about notable women of California, women in the military and more.

 

MOVIES AND SHOWS

Universal Pictures is releasing some of its movies early on digital platforms, including Trolls World Tour,” which will be available Friday. Disney+ released Frozen 2” earlier than planned on its streaming platform earlier this month.

In addition to movies, you can watch Broadway musicals,educational shows on Netflix, and live cameras from aquariums. 

 

EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

Some educational companies are offering free subscriptions during the school closures and Scholastic is releasing free courses daily through its “Learn from Home” website. The site offers projects for students related to reading, history and more. Its projects are divided by grade-level.

 

You can also take advantage of digital access to San Diego County libraries, which provides access to e-books and audiobooks.

 

ARTS

NASA is providing access to its digital images through this website. Paris museums have put images from their collections online. The Metropolitan Opera in New York is streaming live performances nightly.

 

Consider turning to Instagram accounts for arts and craft projects. These teachers and parents share ideas on making things and fun activities that can provide a break from a screen.

Real love spell caster that work to bring back ex lover no matter why he left you.

My boyfriend that left me few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called dr unity and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and after 28hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and now have been married happily with a son. Ever since Dr unity helped me, my boyfriend is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix .Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: 2348055361568 or Email him at: [email protected] com

I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is an amazing one and my name is Renato Sanchez. When i came in contact with this man it was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as Doctor UZOYA helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. his contact address; [email protected] OR call his Whatsapp number on 1(301)909 8775. thank you so much Dr,UZOYA

My name is Amanda Vivian, I base in USA,Texas..My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Enato, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped PROPHET Henry email address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr Enato, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

I' m Asenjo Derry from Florida, this is incredible! I still imagine how Dr. UZOYA brought my husband back to me in just 48 hours.. No one could have ever made me believe that this testimony that I’m about to write now would actually one day be written by me. because I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like that, but I was told by a trustworthy source (a very close co-worker) that Dr. UZOYA is a very devoted, talented, and gifted spell caster, and after much cajole she got me to visit this email;  [email protected]  It was one of the most excellent thing I have ever done in my whole life. My love life was in total mess after my husband dumped me for another woman,and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn't seem to care. So, with nothing but my pride to lose, I checked it out. I was flabbergasted. This man is for REAL. He did whatever magic he does, and lo and behold – more than 48 hours later, I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage psychotherapy, and we’re doing very, very well right now. and now he has loved me more than ever..Thank you so much Dr. UZOYA for your Love and for reuniting my family back sir, his Email:  [email protected]  OR Whatsapp him;  1(301) 909-8775.
