The Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) is supporting parents in their effort to continue their children’s education while schools are closed during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The organization announced it is distributing daily home education lesson plans for kindergarten through 5th grade and is currently working on building lesson plans for grades 6-12.
Actress and THSC spokesperson, Sam Sorbo said the organization is continuously working to provide the necessary resources for parents to teach their children from home.
"We mobilized our entire team and have worked around-the-clock to produce excellent daily lesson plans beginning with grades K through 5. Using our website, every parent has immediate access to this free resource, as well as support from our team of education professionals," Sorbo said.
"We are rolling out new resources every week, for children of all ages, so that parents have the vibrant, comprehensive, necessary resources to teach at home. COVID-19 may shut down our schools, but the learning shouldn't have to stop, as we empower parents to take the reins and continue their children's' education at home in the coming months."
CBN News previously reported that Sorbo has been homeschooling her children for years. She is encouraging parents not to fear their own knowledge level and to instead, "learn alongside" kids.
THSC is urging families not to panic over the idea of homeschooling and remember that kids learn naturally when they are playing.
