PreK-1st Grade At-Home Resources

HOME          PreK-1         2-3 Grades         4-5 Grades         6-8 Grades         9-12 Grades

During the summer, we hope that families will continue to focus on student learning. We have compiled learning activities and digital resources that are aligned with the Mississippi College-and Career-Readiness Standards to continue and reinforce your child's education. Parents and caregivers should promote good screen time practices when students are online continuing their studies, playing games, or socializing with friends and family. 

 Sun Icon Indicates the resource is part of the 2020 Summer Learning Challenge.
