With schools and many community resources closed during this time, Book Are Wings is here to support your family with some remote learning opportunities.
We have our own Youtube channel, and we’ve curated two special resources on our “playlists” section for you. “Readalouds for Families” has 27 virtual stories, read by authors and actors. “Storytimes” has prerecorded story times from libraries all over the country; many with movement and crafts!
National Geographic Kids has content for kids from around the world! Animal features, articles, games and videos, many of which include lesson pans or activities to accompany them.
Project Gutenberg has thousands of free downloads of ebooks, and they have digitized many classic novels as well as countless children’s books.
Time for Kids has articles divided by grade level, from Kindergarten to 6th grade. The articles center on current events, and also have relevant pop culture content that will interest kids.
The Library of Congress has more classic novels for free download, as well as author webcasts featuring diverse writers from Isabel Allende to Neil Gaiman.
ReadWorks offers tips for parents to support their children in distance and remote learning. In fact, they have a webinar on that topic this Wednesday March 18th from 12-12:30. You can register here.
