Kate Messner, a former classroom teacher, forever-educator, and the author of more than three dozen books for kids has put together an amazing website -- a library of resources for kids, families, teachers, and librarians to make sure that reading & learning can happen anywhere this spring.
There is a growing collection of resources that include everything from first-chapter and picture book read-alouds (all shared with permission!) to drawing and writing mini-lessons. Be sure to check back often, as new resources will be added every day. If you’d prefer to browse learning-at-home resources by age group, my daughter Ella has put together the pages below, with even more resources, organized by grade level. (Thanks, Ella!)
JUST ONE OF HER VIDEOS:
Author Kate Messner shares a read-aloud of THE NEXT PRESIDENT: THE UNEXPECTED BEGINNINGS AND UNWRITTEN FUTURE OF AMERICA’S PRESIDENTS, illustrated by Adam Rex. Writing challenge: After the read-aloud, write your own presidential platform. What changes would you make to your country if you were in charge? LINK
