I’m sure you’ve seen the suggested color coded daily schedule circling Facebook in an attempt to keep the kids on a learning path during this shutdown.
In reality, it’s probably more like the one that has a block for “iPad” every other hour. While I’m sure some days will be easier than others — thanks to the good weather we’ve been having — I have pulled together a list of resources you can use to help come up with teachable moments with your kids.
There are a bunch of companies giving away their resources for free this month so use them if you have access!

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
