Here are some optional resources that you may want to explore. I have included the link and a brief description for each website.

  • Audible: Audible is an online audiobook company. During this time, they have made a number of their children and teen audiobooks available for people to listen online for free. Try them out!

  • Tumblebooks Read Along: The books at the top are the easiest. The further down the page you go, the higher the reading level. When you choose a book, the words are on the screen. When you hit the play button, you will hear someone reading the words. The words that are being read out loud are highlighted so it is easier to follow along.

  • Storyline Online: First of all, yes, the books used here are kids' picture books. However, they are read by different celebrities! I'm not up to date with who young people consider to be famous, but some of the celebrity readers include Rami Malek, Oprah Winfrey, Chrissy Metz, Sean Astin, Chris Pine, Betty White, Elijah Wood, Kristen Bell, and Viola Davis. Also, when the book is being read out loud, the words are shown at the bottom of the screen.

  • BBC Languages: If you want to learn another language for fun, try this website. There is also an English as a foreign language section (left side box labelled "Languages of the British Isles").

  • Khan Academy: Don't have to register to use this math website. Just enter a topic (e.g. fractions) in the search box and away you go!

  • Science World: Even though Science World is currently closed, you can try out some of their projects at home. Many of the materials are common items that can hopefully be found at home.

  • Knowledge Network: There are many interesting shows and documentaries that you can watch. However, you will need to sign up with an email first.
