20 Mar How to Continue your Child’s Education During the Coronavirus Pandemic
If you’ve been wondering how to continue your child’s education during the coronavirus pandemic, Scholastic is offering free online courses to help children learn from home.
Students can continue learning online at home with day-by-day projects to keep kids reading, thinking, and growing with Scholastic’s special cross-curricular journeys.
As school closures affect millions of students across the nation due the covid-19 pandemic, there is an incredible need for supporting our teachers, children, and families in learning. Scholastic Learn At Home is free and covers Pre-K – Grades 6–9+.
Scholastic Learn At Home provides approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, for up to four weeks of instruction, including writing and research projects based on nonfiction articles and stories, virtual field trips, reading and geography challenges, access to our new digital community for kids Scholastic Home Base, and more. Teachers can also plan virtual learning meetups to discuss and expand on any of the resources found on the site.
Accessible on all devices, including smart phones, and with no sign-up required, Scholastic Learn At Home activities are flexible for using any writing materials students have readily available at home—no printing required.

“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,” says Lauren Tarshis, Senior Vice President & Editor-in-Chief/Publisher, Scholastic Classroom Magazines. “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.”
