COVID-19: Things To Do, Virtual Classes, and Resources to Stay Safe and Informed
Scholastic is committed to providing at-home learning over the summer months with Scholastic Summer Read-a-Palooza. The free program unites communities in a nationwide campaign that celebrates reading for fun while improving access to books during the summer. For 2020, they are launching a brand new kids experience in Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination which offers full books, live events, and games in a safe community for readers. Kids will be encouraged to track their reading streaks to earn rewards and unlock book donations, with the goal of donating 100,000 books by July.
Scholastic Home Base is a fun, safe, and completely free online destination where kids can create their own avatar, interact with their favorite Scholastic characters, play games, and read books. At any point during the summer, kids can download and print a report of their reading progress to share with their parent, educator, librarian, or group leader.
