Scholastic Interactives (elementary, middle, high)
Scholastic Interactives allows users to access many valuable resources for the classroom setting. There is a section called “Resources and Tools” that contains a lesson plan database, printable worksheets and graphic organizers, and many other tools. Another section called “Strategies and Ideas” offers just that: thoughts on how to teach more effectively. There is a section called “Books and Authors” and a section with interactive tools for students called “Student Activities.”
It is within this section that you will find:
Classroom applications are varied, but with the whiteboard compatibility, you will be sure to keep your students engaged on the topic at hand.
There are no accounts needed, so you can jump right in and use this site with your class today.
Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories you make to share, read and print.
Read them like books, play them like games, and send them like greeting cards. They’re curiously fun.
Teachers can sign up for a teacher account to manage students without emails, create assignments, and build beautiful libraries. Authors choose from a wide variety of art to go along with a story, write their story and then share it or print it out.
