The Children’s Department is thrilled to announce that we have a new subscription for families to use, and it is completely free to our patrons. Scholastic Teachables gives you access to downloadable and printable PDFs that cover all the school topics, and spans the ages from pre-K to 8th grade. To access this resource, just go to the library’s main page and click on the drop-down menu at the top for “Research Tools”. Next, you will want to select “A-Z Resources”.

Finally, you simply scroll down until you find, “Scholastic Teachables”. Take a few minutes here to check this resource out. It is easy to use, covers many ages and abilities, and best of all, it is FREE! Whether you are distance learning or homeschooling, there is something here for nearly everyone.

In addition to the worksheets for kids, each sheet comes with its own teaching guide. To give you a taste of what is offered, take a look at these menus:

If a child loves animals, just click on “animals” under theme. You will be taken to a page that gives you over 999 animal-themed worksheets. To find just what you are looking for, look to the left-hand side of the screen to see a handy filter. Here, you can narrow down your search by type of animal, grade, subject, type, and genre. It really is quite nifty!

If you select a worksheet, you will see a page that gives you a thumbnail of what the sheet looks like along with a list of what the sheet aims to accomplish, like this:

Then, you just need to open your sheet, and voila! Everything you need is right there.

We hope you are as excited about this new resource as we are. Use it as you please, and enjoy learning with your children!
