As schools across Colorado and the nation close because of the coronavirus pandemic, millions of students are stuck at home with their classes on hold. But before your child gets too excited about not having to study, rest assured, parents, Scholastic has got your back. The educational company has launched a FREE “Learn at Home” website that has daily courses for students from Pre-K to grades 6 and higher.
From learning about why zebras have stripes to math lessons based on K-Pop stars, Scholastic’s learning plans cover all the subjects your student would be taking at school. The digital learning hub covers ELA, STEM, Science, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional Learning.
The website, which is divided into four sections based on grade level, currently has five days’ worth of content. An additional 15 days of content is on the way, Scholastic said in a news release.
Scholastic Learn At Home provides approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, for up to four weeks of instruction, including writing and research projects based on nonfiction articles and stories, virtual field trips, reading and geography challenges, access to their new digital community for kids — Scholastic Home Base, and more.
Activities are flexible for using any writing materials students have readily available at home — no printing required.
The website is accessible on any device that has internet, including smart phones, and no sign up is required. It will remain free and open indefinitely.
