Friday Round-up: A recap of this week’s online learning opportunities

This week, the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) asked you to consider your “why”, shared information on how the pandemic might change libraries’ traditional summer programs, looked at extending learning beyond screen time, and read a children’s book in Spanish. Here’s a quick recap in case you missed it:

Monday Motivation— We asked you to consider your “why” this week, with the help of comedian Michael Jr.

Teaching Tuesday—Many families rely on their public libraries during the summertime. How will the pandemic change traditional summer programs in libraries across the nation? We invited you to learn more by registering for a webinar by Common Sense Education. Click the link to view previous webinars. 

Wonder Wednesday— As we move into the summer months, Wonderopolis can be a great tool for extending learning beyond screen time. Learn how you can use Wonders of the Day® to garden, make art out of food, practice science, and more.

Read Along Thursday— The Rojas family from Bachman Lake Together read “Elmer” by David McKee.

You can find next week’s series of online learning opportunities on NCFL’s social media channels (@FamiliesLearning and @NCFL) at 9 a.m. EDT each day. All videos from previous weeks can be found on our YouTube channel.

This series will run through the end of May. You are always welcome to join us to learn in new and interesting ways.
