Online Resources

  • Lakeshore online resources are designed for Pre-K through grade 5.  Lesson plans are divided by content area; Math, Language, Science and Social Studies.


    Scholastic has created the Scholastic Learn at Home website. This free resource provides Pre-K through grade 6+ students with 20 days worth of learning so you can keep your child actively engaged in learning while our school is closed.  Students will have access to approximately three hours of learning opportunities per day, including projects based on exciting articles and stories, virtual field trips, reading and geography challenges, and more. These learning journeys were created by Scholastic editors to ensure meaningful learning can continue during school closures.

    Here is the link to the Scholastic Learn at Home website for Pre-K.  The learning journeys are accessible on any device. They are designed to limit the need for printing, and allow students to learn independently or with their families.  Before you get started, you must first set up your free account for Book Flix and our Watch & Learn Library. It's simple—just use the following info:  username: Learning20 | password: Clifford
