Does your school need to close temporarily due to COVID-19 or another emergency? Or maybe your class just needs a break from screens? Here are simple screen-free lesson plans for WEEK 2 of distance learning that students can do with limited internet access, time, budget or materials. Best of all, these activities are screen-free, meaning kids don't have to be online to do them (which is great if your students don't have a laptop or wifi at home).

Here are a few scenarios where these activities might be helpful:

  • If your school will provide online platforms or video conferencing for the core curriculum, then the lessons in this resource will likely be extra activities that you can tailor to your class or students. Also, ideas on how to extend lessons are given if your school is closed longer than 3 weeks.
  • However, many families in rural areas don’t have the internet, but parents have cell phones. So teachers can copy the text of activities they choose and send to families via text or phone app. Then kids do the activities. Optional: Ideas are given if you want kids to send back a photo or short video showing what they did.
  • In addition, some school districts are not having teachers assign work at all. In that case, these activities might just be included by a teacher who still wants to communicate with families (just checking in to see if everyone is okay, encouraging families to keep routines or suggest activities which can be done to not lose skills learned all year).

Challenges include descriptions of activities in the following areas: ELA, Math Chores, Make a game, Group Writing, PE/Get Active, Backyard Science, Show and Tell, and more.

Teachers can copy text from editable Google Slides presentation and paste into their own document or video to send electronically however they usually communicate with families (such as texting, Remind app, Class Dojo, SeeSaw, etc.). You can assign specific topics or word lists, or let kids choose based on their interests.

Since this resource is a Google Slide presentation, which you can edit and adapt to your student population as needed. You have permission to copy and paste the text into your own document for your class to be delivered electronically or in a video format. You DO NOT have permission to sell these ideas or share them schoolwide or districtwide.

Optional: I also provide ideas for how students might take photos or create a short video to send back to teachers showing what they did.

I created this to enable teachers in a crisis situation to design simple lesson plans that students can do at home during a school closure (which could be under very stressful circumstances). Stay well!
