Daily schedule for school closures 
This will be an unprecedented school year.
Founded as a non-profit organization more than ten years ago, Khan Academy’s mission is to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. During these challenging times, we’re here to help you ensure students keep learning.  For many of you, this school year will be different from any other you’ve experienced before.  Kids may be returning to school on modified schedules or learning full-time at home. 

No matter where learning happens this year, we’re here to help. These schedules are meant to be templates that can be used as is, or modified to better suit the needs of your family, classroom or district. For parents, we’ve put together a Distance learning guide featuring expert advice on motivating your kids and setting up for a successful school year.

Khan Academy has self-paced, interactive content--practice problems, videos and articles--for students in every grade and in most major subject areas. It is all free and non-commercial and is made possible by philanthropic support from people like you.

Enjoy using these and see our Keep Everyone Learning resource page for more information. To get the student schedules in another language click here.

Khan Academy Kids (ideally doing it while sitting next to a parent or older sibling giving them positive feedback for effort). Khan Academy Kids starts at the basics of letters, numbers, and social emotional learning and goes through the first grade standards in math, reading, writing and social emotional learning.

For students with stronger literacy and motor skills: Khan Academy Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade math can be appropriate. Ideally a parent or older sibling sits next to them while doing this. One practice that we’ve seen teachers use to great effect is to have all students start on Kindergarten and then move to 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc. This helps ensure that older students are filling in any knowledge gaps that may have accumulated. It also helps build momentum and confidence.

On Khan Academy, course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. For students with minimal gaps, they should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours.
Play. Ideally outside if weather permits.
9:30am - 10am
Reading time. Ideally this would be time to read next to a parent or sibling. If students are ready, they can read on their own.

11:20am - 12pm

Assuming you’ve gotten a good night of sleep, your thinking will be sharpest in the morning so let’s start the day strong with some math! Whoo hoo!

Khan Academy math practice has got your back. Our new Get ready for grade level courses are perfect for the start of a new school year with their focus on the essential math skills you will need for your upcoming school year.

Course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. If you don’t have too many gaps, you should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours. If you do have gaps, it may take a bit longer, but that is good! This is your chance to fill in those gaps that might otherwise hold you back in the future.

Once you have mastered the Getting ready course, you can move on to your grade level course. Try to set a goal of leveling up at least 3 skills a week.

You’ll see that if you are able to put in at least a solid 30 minutes a day of math practice and keep leveling up skills, you’ll see big gains and, most importantly, really see the world in new and exciting ways!
Play. Ideally outside if weather permits.
9:40am - 10am
We just released the first version of reading comprehension practice on Khan Academy. It is grouped by grade level:

We recommend starting at your grade level and doing 1-2 practice sets per day (or 10 practice sets per week). This should take about 10-20 minutes per day. If you find it difficult, completely okay to start at an earlier grade level. Likewise, if you find the passages and questions to be easy, feel free to move to higher grade levels.
