EDUCATION at HOME

Story Pirates University

Story Pirates is an arts education media company for kids based out of NYC (started out of Harlem in 2004) but is also an national company. They put on sketch comedy acts based off of stories written by kids.
Story Pirates University brings the fun to your home: “Our video library features standards-aligned writing curriculum and livestream classes, all hosted by our expert teachers. Story Pirates will lead students through a collaborative writing exercise, which students can then use as a model for their own writing along with tools we provide.”

Outdoors are a great place to exercise, play and connect with nature. Here are some ways to help you feel healthy when you are inside.

Alo Yoga has great resources for movement, mindfulness, emotional well being and activities for children of all ages.
