From books to magazines to book fairs and book clubs, Scholastic is a familiar name to most school-age children, their parents and of course, to teachers. Established in 1920, Scholastic's mission is to encourage, through literacy, the intellectual and personal growth of kids everywhere. At Scholastic Printables, various educational resources are available for teachers, librarians, homeschooling parents and other educators.
A printable is a type of worksheet, coloring sheet or other form that can be sent directly to your printer via a website, such as Scholastic.com. At Scholastic Printables, the selection of printables include worksheets, clip art, award certificates, lesson plans, graphic organizers, assessment tools, and writing prompts. The printables are available for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade and cover a variety of subjects including reading, math and science. The printables are organized by subject, skill set and themes.
Members have access to Scholastic tools to make their printables experience more user-friendly. The "My File Cabinet" tool is an easy way to organize Scholastic Printables. Members can arrange their file cabinets to suit their personal style. Printables can be stored by subject, theme, month, grade level or even by holiday. The "Make Your Own Tools" option offers members the opportunity to create original games, word lists, puzzles and flash cards. This tool can be an easy way to customize lesson plans, incorporating spelling words into word search games or reading vocabulary into a fun but challenging crossword puzzle. "Leveled Learning Packs" is a tool used to produce three-tiered printables featuring "below level", "at level" and "above level" worksheets. These packs are available for both math and reading.
