Are you a busy parent looking for new ways to support your child’s education? Do you work with children? Are you a homeschooling family? If so, the Deerfield Public Library has two fabulous, new online resources for you!

Scholastic Teachables

With something for children ages preschool to 8th grade, Scholastic Teachables is a one-stop shop for a myriad of educational resources. Providing over 25,000 printable activity sheets, lesson plans, and mini-books, Teachables has so much to offer you and your students. The website couldn’t be easier: you can search by subject, grade level, standard, keyword, type of resource, or theme.

Scholastic Teachables has everything from test prep to how to write book reports to printable mini-books on a wide variety of topics. For teachers, there is everything from clip art to classroom management resources, bulletin board ideas to calendars, forms to record sheets. “Summer Stay-on Track Packs” help bridge the gap over the summer months, along with our fabulous Summer Reading Program, of course. And if you’re ever caught late at night on February 13 without a Valentine for your child’s teacher, the database even has printable teacher Valentines (as well as goodbye cards for teachers to give their students on the last day of school). Really, there is so much to this database! Click here to access these resources, anytime, anywhere, with your Deerfield Public Library card. (If you aren’t a DPL cardholder, you can use this valuable resource in the Library with a guest computer pass.)
