Our content never gets stale, and neither will your lessons!
Every month we add hundreds of new resources specially curated for educators to answer the need for timely, relevant teaching opportunities. When our content is combined with our popular SOS Instructional Strategies—designed for educators, by educators—you get that magic formula for constructive, engaging activities. And luckily, we’ve built thousands of these activities to help you tap into that magic and save time in the process.
There are tons of great ways to take advantage of these ready-to-use activities and keep students curious throughout the day. Whether it’s lesson starters, background builders, writing prompts, or student choice boards, you’ll find exactly what you and your students need. You can use these activities as-is for turnkey assignments or customize them in Studio. Additionally, you can assign them to individual students, groups of students, or the whole class. And because of embedded literacy and language supports, like Microsoft’s Immersive Reader, all learners have an opportunity to do well.
