Snowy Day Homeschool Science Lesson - Frozen Letters And Numbers

 Snowy day homeschool fun - a math and science learning lesson all rolled into one.

But, adapting to the massive school routine change as well as viewing a parent as both a parent and a teacher, cannot be accomplished in a day. Adjusting your expectations of what both the teaching and learning experience will be like during the first few weeks should be number one on your agenda.
