Back to School Resources

Whether children are attending school in-person, digitally, or homeschooling, COVID-19 has made this school year much more difficult for both students and parents alike. FRS Communications is reviewing resources for parents to use. This week’s blog includes a free downloadable journal, a fun game to play, and a good book that teaches giving back. If you have a resource to share, please send our way.

Big Life Journal

The people behind Big Life Journal understand that trying to juggle running a household, raising children, and adding work stress on top of everything else is overwhelming.  That’s why the company has created an exclusive and FREE downloadable “Back-to-School Care Package.”  This wonderful resource for parents and kids is jam-packed with helpful information, worksheets, tips, activities and exercises.  Consider picking up other Big Life Journal engaging resources that help children develop strong Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and growth mindset skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

Dino Crunch

This game is designed to help kids over 4-years-old develop fine motor skills while learning the basic strategy of game play. The idea is for kids to save all the dinosaur eggs before the T-Rex leaps. This is fast-paced game that will keep a child’s attention. For kids that are sensitive, the T-Rex leaping may be quite a surprise. The game is just $20 and available at Target.

These Are My Pants: Sam’s Giving Adventure by Jane and Katelyn Plank.  Children learn the joy of sharing while having fun with Sam the Squirrel in These Are My Pants! This charming book reminds us to donate and give when we have more than enough and someone doesn’t have enough.Plank Books has decided to continue the giving circle and will be giving 20% of their proceeds to the Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona.

Education is all about inspiring children to get excited about learning. This year will be different, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be great. The resources that are being provided are among the best I’ve seen. If you have ones to share – especially if they are free, please let us know by commenting below.
