2020 Reflection

It’s safe to say 2020 was an arduous year. The end of the year is a time to reflect on the challenges, learnings, accomplishments, and goals for the new year. This year has been challenging, but after some reflection, the Connection Spot Team realized how equally wonderful it’s been to provide our followers with activities and resources.

The Connection Spot Team looks forward to continuing to share free “user-friendly” resources and activities with new-found energy and passion in the new year. Listed below are five of our top posts from the year. We wish all of our followers a happy and healthy new year.

Happy Holidays

The Connection Spot Team would like to wish you all the joys of the season and happiness throughout the coming year. We take time to reflect upon the good things that we have during this season, like our support from you. The Connection Spot Team is thankful for the opportunity to share resources and activities with our followers. May your holidays and New Year be filled with joy.


Welcome Families and Friends!

Hello! We are so glad you found us! Like you, we have been trying to make sense of the restrictions of quarantine during the pandemic. We have children we love and wish we could shield them from this uncertain time. There are some silver linings. For example, we have time with our loved ones (for better or for worse). AND when we go looking for help, we see there are so many resources out there; Some are better than others, and some are just hard to access. Our goal is to give you “user-friendly” resources and activities reviewed by educational experts. See…we’re giving you another silver lining FOR FREE!

How It Works

We will post AT LEAST one new resource and one new activity weekly on Wednesdays. You can view them online and/or download them in a pdf format, and you can also request that we text you a link. We hope you will join us each week to get new ideas. We’d also love to hear from you with your feedback, questions, and suggestions. 

You can search by topic, also known as tags (math, social skills, etc.). You can also translate the site into a variety of languages for your use or to share with others. Some other exciting features include connecting with us through social media. Please check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. You can also text @joinspot to the number (941) 900-3837 to receive text message updates when we post new content. Feel free to share your experiences with us and share our site with your friends. Most importantly, enjoy time with your children and/or learn some ideas to engage in self-directed activities so you can have some quiet time, too!
