With back-to-school season upon us, the Scholastic Parents team has been busy building out great resources for the parent audience. From best books for back to school for PreK, Middle Schoolers, and great stories set in school for elementary readers, there are books picks for all ages and grades.
To help kids and families celebrate recent and upcoming fun holidays including National Sisters Day, National Tooth Fairy Day, and National Grandparents Day, Scholastic Parents featured new book lists paired with printables that include writing practice.
Parents of children interested in STEM will want to check out how to make a gear-powered caterpillar, beautiful batiks, and shell castings, as well as STEM-centric television programming recommendations.Lastly, parents can help make math fun for kids, by showing them how to practice math at the pool or at a baseball game! Make sure to check out much more at the new Scholastic Parents site!
