Schools officially closed for the rest of the school year. I figured something like that would happen, but held out some hope that they'd have some school this year, as school usually runs until late June.
My kids are not doing ok.

I know we have some rugby fans, or even just people that are fans of the All Blacks, or are fascinated by other indigenous cultures. Or have seen Moana far too many times to really count.
Are you stuck at home with children who have far too much energy and no good outlet? Do you want them to learn something different, perhaps start to pick up another language? Or get them doing something other than singing "You're Welcome"?
Please allow me to introduce you to Matua Whaitiri, an instructor for Kapa Haka from around the Porirua area in New Zealand. Matua Whaitiri (or Maori Thor as he introduces himself as) was very sad that he could not teach his students during this time of rahui. So, he took his Kapa haka lessons online.
He streams live from facebook every monday morning, and the videos are also uploaded onto Youtube.
I present to you here the first pilot episode for his show, there are now 11 episodes up on his youtube, please enjoy!

"Frankly, you look ridiculous." Is what I have tried to use to stop or slow down tantrums.

My wife is a high school teacher. Now imagine having 90 of them. About 1/3rd have some kind of customized education plan for a learning/behavioural/etc. difficulty. And the situation you describe about lying about doing their work? So many of them do this, and then when the teacher calls home the parent is often hostile to the teacher over it.

Anybody have chromebook suggestions for 1st graders?
Wife is tired of my son having to use her laptop for school stuff, and we figured he should probably have something that's just his to work with. These storage sizes seem sooooo small but I guess that doesn't matter?

Is anyone else getting desperate enough that they're trying to think of how they could pick a pandemic-buddy family, and only expose to them, for the sake of everyone's sanity? I can't tell if it's really an irresponsible thought or not, it seems like such a small concession, but we don't have any natural fits for it, we're not quite as close as I would like with parents of age-appropriate children to not make it seem uncomfortable.
"I know many Albertans are now at home with kids or are working from home. These are big changes for everyone. And you may start to feel closed in families may need to find creative ways to keep children occupied," she said during Wednesday's update.
One of her suggestions was partnering with a "cohort family," a group of close friends whom you are certain have self-isolated themselves, have not recently travelled and do not pose any risk of being infected with COVID-19.
Hinshaw says that such a group would only work if those families remain committed to the agreement of self-isolating themselves with one another.
"By doing this, the two families would only be exposed to each other, limiting close contacts, children have would have opportunities to play in a controlled environment, and parents would have opportunities to connect."
