Free digital resources teachers and families can use with 4th and 5th grade students when schools are closed for distance learning

With many school districts closing on short notice due to the coronavirus, I know a lot of us are scrambling to find high-quality digital resources to use with our students. Many companies are offering free virtual distance learning tools for educators and families while schools are shut down, which is awesome – but also overwhelming.

Below, I’m sharing a narrowed-down list of free virtual resources that you can integrate into your lessons or share directly with students and families. While I’m curating this list specifically with 4th and 5th grade Virginia teachers in mind, these resources will work in any curriculum.

I encourage you to collaborate with your school librarian along with any resource teachers or coaches at your school. Chances are that there are tons of high-quality, free resources that you and your students can access.

I hope this list helps you to get started wading through all of the distance learning tools available for elementary students. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or suggestions of resources to add to the list!

Great list of free 4th and 5th grade digital resources for elementary school teachers who need to plan distance learning.
