Remote Learning Resources

Hi Wildcat Families -

I'm going to miss seeing all our WCS readers during the school closure! I know that your teachers have shared work and resources with you. But here are a few more to keep you reading, listening, and learning!

1.) Online books. Spend some time on Tumblebooks or explore the links under the Reading Resources tab of this website (Storyline Online is a favorite of mine!)

2.) Hang out with some cool authors and illustrators. Many authors are reading to children online, giving drawing lessons, and writing workshops. CLICK HERE for more information.

3.) Ebooks & audiobooks from Patten Free Library. If you have a library card and a device, you can check out ebooks and audiobooks from PFL. CLICK HERE for more information.

4.) Podcasts. I have a confession to make - I don't listen to podcasts. I'm definitely an audiobook girl. But I'm going to challenge myself during this time at home to try out some different podcasts. I'll be getting ideas from this list: 25 Best Podcasts for Kids on Commonsense Media 

Lastly, I'm always just an email away! Please reach out if you have any reading or research needs.
Happy reading,
Ms. Luchies
