Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures and Scholastic´s online learning platform is a clear example of it. The schoolbook editor and publisher has gone out of its way to make sure that everybody has access to resources that help parents educate their kids at home.
Your Best Friend
Scholastic has made available about nine different games on their website to cover some subjects that kids might find a bit challenging to learn. Some of those subjects include word roots and even women´s rights, all gamified to help the kids be interested and motivated to learn without getting bored.
But this platform has much more than just a few games, as you get a wide range of teacher resources to use with your kids at home. Planning out what you are going to cover is no longer an issue with the unit plans and lesson plans that you find in the Scholastic platform.
Setting up Homework
If you are all out of ideas for activities your child can do either to keep them busy or to complement whatever homework they are sent, you can find lots of ideas on this platform. You get a few computer lab activities to get your children used to specific tasks and some interactive whiteboard activities to mimic what they would do in a classroom.
Scholastic as a learning platform has become a lifesaver for all homeschooling parents with its wide range of teachers’ resources and games the kids can play while learning. Setting up activities will no longer be an issue either, as this platform gives you both ideas for activities and already designed activities that you can use with the little ones.
