Instructional Resources for Families

Dear Families,

 

Since we can not replicate the engaging and rigorous instruction that takes place in our classrooms, we will not be teaching any new curricular material during our closure.  Despite our inability to replace the highly skilled and personalized instruction that takes place in our classrooms on a daily basis, we are committed to ensuring our students have the opportunity to stay engaged in learning during this time.  The education community has come together, and is providing a variety of resources and supports that can be accessed at home while schools are closed.  These are optional resources that we compiled as one tool for extra review or practice if you choose.  They are not meant to replace in-person classroom instruction, but instead can be used as extra practice or review if you choose on a voluntary basis.  This practice is the same as any other practice you may independently provide to your children over the summer or during scheduled breaks.  
 
Below you will find a compilation of both resources currently used by the district, and other supplemental sources you can use at home during this time.  We will do our best to update this list periodically as more resources become available.  Please note that these third party resources are from trusted sites used widely in the education community, however the sites have not been vetted in entirety by the Lakeland School District.
