"With everything from free lessons from Scholastic to a daily doodle with Mo Willems, these free homeschool resources will help:

1. Check the school website

First things first, see if your teacher or school has learning packets or classes via Google classrooms or Zoom. States and cities that are shutting down schools generally provide some online resources. New York City has grade-by-grade guidance. Check with your child's teacher or principal for guidance for a free homeschool curriculum.
Portland Public Schools
North Clackamas School District
Gladstone School District
NBC Learn's Parent Toolkit has guidelines for what students ought to know by the end of the year.
