Introduction to Our Digital Resources

Each issue of Scholastic News has a wealth of online activities and resources. Click on an issue and you can:

  • Preview vocabulary with the vocab slideshow.
  • Present the issue and click the read-aloud for text-to-speech.
  • Watch the video to build knowledge.
  • Play the online learning game to practice basic skills.
  • Try the hands-on activity for some off-screen learning and fun.
  • Print skills sheets for skills practice and assessment.

Each issue and feature can be shared with caregivers. Click this icon:

From there, copy the link or share directly to Google Classroom. You have the option to share in Open Mode or Locked Mode.

Open Mode directs students to the content you shared, but also allows them to explore other parts of the website.

Locked Mode only allows students to access the content you shared. Some teachers use Locked Mode when they don't want students to look ahead to future issues that might not have been introduced to the class yet. Other teachers use it to help students focus on one thing at a time.

In addition, you can access past issues, videos, games, and skills sheets in our archive on the Scholastic News homepage.
