Find Week 1, Week 2, & new Week 3 ELA learning resources for preschool, kindergarten, elementary, middle school, and high school students below.

 

As we all prepare to self-isolate, shelter in place, quarantine, hunker down at home, the time for interacting with our kids is upon us. And the fact that many parents are still working [from home] doesn’t make engaging with our kids feel easy or productive. That’s why we here at Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com have come up with some daily activities for kids of all ages that inspire learning, curiosity, and a bit of independence too. And we’ve asked our network of amazing teachers to vet the activities to make sure we’re providing suggestions that will keep your kids on track with their school-level learning.

On this page, we’ve listed all of our pathways to daily student-led and family-led activities by age range and school level. Check back as we will constantly be updating this page and our content to provide new activities for you and your families to use.

We may not know when we’ll be free of this pandemic, but it does prove that we can all work together to make the best of the situation for everyone involved.

Happy learning!
