Scholastic is stepping up to the plate as there is a growing need for educational content for our kids.
Scholastic Learn at Home has created a free digital learning hub designed to support virtual learning plans as schools announce closures nationwide due to the spread of coronavirus.
Young students can continue to learn while they are stuck at home. The Scholastic Learn at Home program allows free open access to daily learning journeys divided into four grade spans—Pre-K–K, Grades 1–2, Grades 3–5, and Grades 6–9+, covering ELA, STEM, Science, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional Learning.
Lauren Tarshis, senior vice president and editor-in-chief/publisher of Scholastic Classroom Magazines says"
"As more and more teachers, students, and families around the world are affected by the coronavirus, our priority is to support them in the best way we know how—by providing them with rich stories and meaningful projects that will keep kids academically active. We designed Scholastic Learn At Home knowing that administrators and teachers need to create extensive virtual learning plans, quickly, and that students need uplifting and engaging experiences. Our hope is that even though daily routines are being disrupted and students may not have valuable time in school with their educators, together we can support meaningful learning at home while it is necessary."
At-home learners can use three hours of study material every day for up to four weeks. The programs include writing and research projects, virtual field trips, and geography challenges. They currently have five days of content but an additional 15 days is on the way.
The program is completely free and will be open indefinitely. It can be accessed on any device that has internet and you don't need to sign up.
