    The internet offers a lot of resources for kids learning at home. You can easily access these materials for free.  Given the numerous sites, we have listed the must-visit sites that can help in your search for workbooks, activity sheets, and homeschool curriculum.

    Learning resources from the Department of Education 

    DepEd Learning Portal K to 12 Resources

    This DepEd site has stories, learning modules, and activity materials for all required subjects. Some documents are even in different local dialects. If you go to K to 12 resources and click Kindergarten, you will be presented with a weekly plan guide for four quarters. If you click on a grade, it's categorized according to subjects. And each subject has its own learning resources from activity sheets to a teacher's guide.

    This site may be complemented by DepEd's Curriculum Guide for grades 1 to 10 and for the Alternative Learning System. However, it is not an easy site to navigate like the above.
