Khan Academy math practice. Depending on level, one of the following courses are likely appropriate:

One practice that we’ve seen teachers and students use to great effect is to start, regardless of age, on Kindergarten and then move to 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc.

Course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. If you don’t have too many gaps, you should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours. If you do have gaps, it may take a bit longer, but that is good!  This is your chance to fill in those gaps that might otherwise hold you back in the future.

9:40am - 10am

Go for walk/run. Youtube JustDance/workouts if weather is bad. Maybe 15 minutes of Yoga with Adrien?

Recommend starting by taking the course challenge a few times to figure out what you know and don’t know.


  • Things to write about/prompts:
  • What would you do? Research how the virus spreads and different plans that leaders have made to slow it or stop it. Then imagine you are an elected official. Write a plan of your own to slow or stop the virus in your own town.
  • What are you excited or worried about?
  • Write a letter to yourself 10 years in the future. What do you want to tell your future self?
  • How do you think the world will be different after the novel coronavirus?
  • What part would you play? People in many, many different jobs play a role in managing this outbreak. Make a list of jobs that can contribute to a solution, and write about which job you’d want and why.

12pm - 1pm

Lunch - Listen to an educational podcast! Try RadioLab If you like science, Forever Ago if you like history, or Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls if you like biographies, etc...
