At Home Learning for Challenging Times 

With the closing of many school systems because of COVID-19, keeping students engaged in meaningful learning is especially important. Furthermore, the challenge of being housebound with children who are used to a school routine can be daunting. Here are some websites to share with parents and students: 

1. Scholastic has a website that offers online books, videos, and hands-on projects to keep kids reading, thinking, and learning.  There are 20 days of resources and activities sorted by grade level. For example, students can read or listen to a book about spiders, watch an engaging video, and do follow-up activities to enhance their learning. This is all FREE! Check it out!!   (By Ellen Lewis,
