To help you teach or learn during this challenging time, we are providing free online resources for reading, ideas for teaching reading at home, parent lesson plans, and struggling reader strategies to help all readers get into good books:

Resources for Supporting Students at Home

Book Quest

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Send your child on a quest for knowledge! Children will choose their own path through a list of book options based on the theme "responding to challenges." They will think critically about what they have learned as they answer questions about the texts to complete their quest.


Compare and Contrast: Book to Movie

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Lots of great books are made into movies! In this activity, children will choose and read a book, then watch the Hollywood adaptation (with your permission)! Along the way, they'll answer prompts that help them think about the similarities and differences between the book and the movie.


Independent Reading Goal-Setting Worksheet

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Encourage your child to set, work towards and share goals that will help them build strong reading habits.


Learning Ally DIY Book Club

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Share the love of reading with your child through a DIY book club! The team at Learning Ally has put together a kit for you to run your own book club as a family or with friends, complete with discussion questions and activities to extend the learning. Our first book is I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark by Debbie Levy.


Featured Audiobooks

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Motivate your child to read by adding an engaging book from Learning Ally's Featured Audiobooks collection to their bookshelf. (These books can also be found through library lending resources and retail vendors if your child does not have an Audiobook Solution account.)


Read-Draw-Write Graphic Organizer

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Have your child read a book and use their imagination to tell the story through a drawing.


Pre-Reading Inventory

Adult Guidance Needed - High

Turn your child into a book detective by having them investigate various features of a book before reading a new book.
