Learning from Home While Schools are Closed

Millions of students across the U.S. are stuck at home with schools closed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Across social media, there is no shortage of memes showing how panicked parents are coping with keeping their children entertained and educated while practicing social distancing to keep their families safe. Never fear – there are plenty of ways to learn from home! Scholastic has created a free learn-at-home website for all age levels, pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade, and beyond! Available activities include “watching” stories and reading books online in a variety of topics like “Living on a Farm” and “All About Sound,” as well as drawing, writing, and spelling activities, virtual video field trips, and more!
