    Anyone else stressed about homeschooling their children? Let me tell you, I can teach decently at work but teaching my own children is a whole different story. That being said, if you need ideas for resources, please let me know…I can help w/ the elementary aged kids….and for starters https://www.vooks.com/resources is a great resource. It’s free for teachers (I know there are some of you out there) and it’s free for one month for families (this could change…who knows…I’ve heard rumours that free resources will be popping up in the next while). It’s an online digital library…and even has pdfs of some of the books with worksheets to print off…venn diagrams…rhyming words…etc. 🙂 Soooo fun! (If your children listen are receptive to your teaching…;) )

    Hello all,

    Thanks for the great ideas and resources! I am interested in a book exchange. I am grateful for the online books that are available, but I also have a thing for having an actual physical book in my hands. We have quite a few books at our house – many are kids books K-gr.5/6, and some adult ones, too. If you have some jr. novels for grade 4-6 I would be particularly interested in those. 😉

    If anyone could use some supports in maintaining their mental health in this season of new routines, patterns, and relational dynamics I’m going to be posting excerpts from the Thrive manual over the next while. It was originally developed as a mental health support group resource, but I think the tools they provide are really helpful wherever you find yourself on the mental health continuum.

    Anyway, you can find the link to the resources by clicking on the image at the bottom of the “Connected” page here. The first section is on creating balanced and healthy goals in your daily schedule. Hope it’s helpful!

    A friend of mine shared this video on handling food in way to protect yourself (and others) from potentially contacting the COVID-19 virus. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjDuwc9KBps&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR0QmlzpGm0OfkNx4aE_k6JY1zbTKX78U_rIzSUW3kPGmaKuWbpj0FyEuEEThe video demonstrates a very safe method of handling food from the store, I would like to add to the information shared in the video the following:
    Keep the cloth you are using to wipe down the surfaces soaked in the cleaning solution; 
    With the cereal box, wipe down the box prior to opening it to remove the bag (this will reduce the chance of cross contamination – box-hand-bag);
    Wash the vegetables prior to placing in the fridge;
    With the bread, wipe the bag down prior to opening it and transferring to a clean container (again the virus is transmitted in droplet form, by shaking the bag over the clean area the potential to contaminate it increases);
    With the fast food, wipe the wrapper prior to opening it and transferring the food to the clean area (same reason as above);
    As most stores do not use plastic bags any more, if you do not want to risk contaminating your reusable bags you can ask for boxes to pack the groceries in.
    I Hope this information is helpful, feel free to share this with family and friends.
    Stay well, blessings everyone. Roger
