Scholastic Offering Free Remote Learning Resources for Parents
Massachusetts schools are now closed for weeks, so what can you do to keep the learning momentum going? Scholastic is here to help.
Who hasn't seen a Scholastic book flyer in their day? Well, now your kids can enjoy some online resources from the publishing, education and media company to keep them learning while school is out.
And it's all free.
Scholastic announced learn-at-home programs designed "to keep the learning going" even while the schools are closed.
And they're making it fun, of course.
The Scholastic Learn at Home lessons are designed to introduce new topics each day for grades pre-K and up. There are videos to watch that introduce the topic and then articles, books and activities to go along with them. There are even virtual field trips.
You just have to sign up and register with a username and password and then check back to the site every day for the latest lesson.
Lessons are posted five at a time (or one school week) and there will be four weeks (one month) posted in total.
My daughter is only in pre-K right now, so her lessons would be about rabbits on Monday, plants on Tuesday and so on.
Older children get more into critical thinking with lessons on celebrating diversity, discussing the future of zoos and even learning how emojis are created.
I've signed up already and am set to launch some in-home learning.
With my daughter having just started school this year, personally I'd hate to ruin the joy of learning she's already shown by having it disappear completely.
So I'm loving this in-home lesson plan that is ready to roll thanks to Scholastic.
