Web-Based Educational Resources for Use at Home
We have compiled a list of various web-based resources to use to continue to encourage learning at home during our closure. Click on the blue hyperlinks to access the website. These resources will be updated as more become available. These sites were all reviewed prior to posting and were working and appropriate at that time. We recommend that parents review the site prior to allowing their children to use it, as web content changes frequently.
Interactive typing practice and games. Parents may sign up for a free account for their child. (Some schools also use this program. If your child uses this program in school, he will need to use a school specific Typing Club link to log in. Many schools post a link on their website.)
Great educational videos and activities. Brain Pop has allowed our district to have temporary, free access to their site during our closure.. You may log in using Chicopee1 for both the username and password.
PBS has organized a variety of resources for grades K-12. There are videos, activity ideas, etc. in various subjects such as ELA, math, science and social studies. All resources are organized by grade level and subject.
