As Ontario parents plan for two weeks of school closures following March Break, Scholastic has announced a free resource to help students learn, think and grow.
“We know that missing school isn’t easy for your kid — or for you. But we also know that there are simple ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for your students to learn, think, and grow. That is why we’ve created Scholastic’s Learn at Home website,” reads a statement on Scholastic’s website.
According to the publisher and distributor, the resource offers 20 days of articles and stories, videos and learning challenges.
“Children can complete them anytime, in any order. They can work on their own or together with you and your family,” continues the statement.
“Our active learning journeys are available on any device and will provide your child with up to three hours’ worth of exciting learning experiences per day. They can go on virtual field trips, meet best-selling authors, or dig deep into a topic they love.
“We hope that you and your children stay safe and healthy, and wish you the best of luck during this stressful time.”

Content is available for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2, Grades 3 to 5 and Grade 6 and up.
