Mar 25, 2020

You’ve scrambled to move your lessons online, and it looks like teaching remotely will continue for at least a couple more weeks. Here are the Arizona K12 Center staff’s picks for tools that can make your online lessons more dynamic and some resources to help make sure you’re caring for yourself as well as your students during this time.

Six resources for teaching from home

Scholastic Learn at Home

This website provides 20-days of projects and activities broken down by grade levels.


You might have already used this great program in your classroom, so know how well it can bring your students together in an online space. Free for educators, FlipGrid allows you and your students to share short videos together.


Film videos of yourself or your screen and be able to simply edit them before sharing out with students through this website.

Free virtual tours

Follow the guidelines of social distancing while still exploring destinations far from Arizona with virtual tours. Go to this link to find a list of museums and other landmarks you can visit virtually!

Google tools

Google has created a website of tips on how to use the Google suite of tools for teaching from home. Video chat with your students using Hangouts or write in real time with your students using Google Docs.

A message and lesson plans from Teacher2Teacher

Sarah Brown Wessling from Teacher2Teacher shares her encouragement and support for all of you working from home and links to Scholastic Classroom’s grade-specific tips for talking about COVID-19.

Four resources for being at home

Teacher Fit for School Closings

This is a free wellness program made specifically for educators. It includes both at-home workouts and tools for mental health during this time.

Presently: A Gratitude Journal

This simple app gives you a daily reminder to jot down something you’re thankful for. This is currently only available through Google Play, but there are plenty of similar apps in the Apple store.

Peloton Digital

The Peleton Digital app is free for 90 days for new users. You don’t need one of the fancy bikes to connect to this digital platform or classes that they offer. There is a library filled with live and recorded classes. Take a mix of yoga, meditation, strength, cycling, running and more. The Peloton App is available for the Web and for the iPhone, iPad, Android phones, Android tablets, and Fire TV.

Clever Girl Finance

Clever Girl Finance is a website that focuses on so many aspects of how we earn, use, and save money! Bola, the founder and creator, is currently making all of her courses free!
