Schools across the nation are unfortunately closing due to the coronavirus pandemic. This means that millions of students will be stuck at home with either their classes on hold or their schools switching to an online class plan. Still, this strategy of staying home can be a bit anxiety provoking.

Despite schools being closed, Scholastic has just launched a program called Learn at Home, where students (particularly children) can continue to study and learn with special “cross-curricular journeys.” According to their website, the company has day-by-day projects that are designed to keep children’s brains stimulated while they are at home. Parents, rest assured that your children will still be getting some form of education.
Scholastic’s website has daily courses for students from Pre-kindergarten to grades six and higher. If, for example, you have a child that is in grade three, four, or five, lessons that they would be learning are hottest and coldest places, facts about our first president, George Washington, or building dominoes with math! Scholastic’s learning plans cover all the things your children would be learning in school.

According to an article by CNN, senior Vice President and editor-in-chief of Scholastic Classroom Magazines said that “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.” Each grade level has about five days’ worth of content, each offering about three hours of learning per day. Scholastic also said in a news release that another fifteen days of content will be coming.
If you’re interested in the courses, you can check it out at Scholastic’s website linked above. It’s accessible to anyone with access to the internet and will remain open indefinitely!
