Scholastic is the company that us 80s kids remember as the it-brand of bookfairs. While some of us likely haven’t come in contact with the logo in 20 years or so, they are still a big deal in education. And they have an announcement:
Scholastic is opening a free, open-access digital hub…to keep kids in school (or some form of) during these very strange coronavirus times. The at-home learning program will provide pre-k through 9th grade+ lessons in ELA (English Language Arts Standard), STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) , Science, Social Studies, and Social-Emotional Learning.
Even better, the programs are available to more than just students. Scholastic has separate portals for families, administrators and teachers. You just choose your grade level, sign up for a free account, and then access the free Watch & Learn Library. The classes feature content (like ebooks with illustrations and visuals), videos and activities.
Now kids can get ready to keep learning.
