K-8 student opportunities

Free Remote Learning resources from Scholastic
To support schools, we’ve also created the Scholastic Learn at Home website. This site provides all students with 20* days’ worth of learning journeys that span the content areas so you can keep your students academically active while your buildings are closed.

 The site supports students with approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, including projects, articles and stories, virtual field trips, reading and geography challenges, and more.  These daily learning opportunities were carefully curated by our editors to reduce the burden on teachers and families needing to create meaningful learning experiences.

The Scholastic Learn at Home website has the username or password posted on the first page, so it is open freely to all, on any device.  You can also access the entire BookFlix program there as well. User Name: Learning20 • Pass Word: Clifford
