Reading and Research

If there is a silver lining to COVID-19 closings, it’s that our favorite children’s book authors are now doing virtual storytimes! 

 

Mo Willems — in conjunction with The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts — is offering a daily Lunch Doodle from 1 PM – 1:20 PM through March 27. Learners worldwide can draw, doodle and explore new ways of writing by visiting Mo’s studio virtually once a day for the next few weeks. Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons and join Mo to explore ways of writing and making together. 

 

Author Mac Barnett is also reading a different book every day at 3 PM ET via Instagram Live.

 

Other authors are grabbing their favorite books and phone and are recording themselves reading — thanks to a new online series organized by Romper. Search the hashtag #OperationStoryTime on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to find a beloved author or discover a new one! 

 

Here are some of our favorites:

Day-by-day projects to keep kids reading, thinking, and growing. 

 

Even when schools are closed, you can keep the learning going with these special cross-curricular journeys. Every day includes four separate learning experiences, each built around a thrilling, meaningful story or video. Kids can do them on their own, with their families, or with their teachers. Just find your grade level and let the learning begin!
