Highlighted Resource of the Day:

Scholastic education company has launched a “Learn at Home” website that has daily courses for students from Pre-Kinder to 6th grade. 

“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,” Lauren Tarshis, senior vice president and editor-in-chief of Scholastic Classroom Magazines said.

Activity Ideas:

  1. Write letters or cards and mail them to local nursing homes. The elderly in these homes aren’t allowed visitors at this time. It will make their day! 
  2. Write thank you letters to doctors and medical personnel who are working so hard right now! 
  3. Practice handwriting by writing letters and words in sand, flour, or play-doh!
  4. Build, build, build! Use cardboard, recycled paper, egg cartons and your imagination to create something for a friend.
  5. Try using math while baking a yummy recipe! 
  6. AND REMEMBER TO GET SOME FRESH AIR!
