What Laptops We Bought for Distance Learning

We got so lucky that my hubby thought to order laptops WEEK ONE.  We only had one, my old HP, and it was on its last legs.  So we bought two for the littles, and are keeping the old one limping along for as long as possible.  I thought it might be helpful to know what laptops we are using for our kids!  This post contains commission referral links, and by reading beyond this point you are agreeing to my updated privacy information.  

This post has been updated...some of you (like my friends in Virginia) are now trying to figure out distance learning for the first time.  We have a bit of a jump on you, and I hope that this is helpful!

I tried for two days to rotate the kids between the kindle with Osmo, and my one laptop. It is a mess you guys, and we are figuring it out.  Having enough technology for each kid to have their own has been key.  I highly recommend buying one for each kiddo if you can, especially if you are working from home!

That is my first piece of advice.  Everyone needs their own computer!

Managing the content is another issue.  My son is on the Autism spectrum, and will gladly spend every day forever on the computer.  We have to be very careful.

Because we have a little one, and two older Elementary aged kiddos, we have some different things.  I really love the OSMO that I linked about above.  We have had it for years.  They teach a lot of great skills, and are super fun.  Like super duper fun.

You can read more about OSMO activities that we love here.
