Take Home Packets for School Closures

Due to COVID-19, many of us are closing schools for several weeks and have to send work home with the students so they can continue learning during the closure. If your students have access to devices and can complete digital work, please check out this blog post. I’ve listed all the Markers and Minions resources that are digital or in the process of becoming digitized.

For those of you who are sending home actual packets, here is a list of suggestions of Markers and Minions resources can work well at home because they don’t require pre-teaching and are minimal prep. This goal of this list is to give you a reminder or give ideas of what you may already own from me. There are so many resources being offered to teachers during this time, so don’t feel like you need to buy anything to prepare for school closures!

Also make sure to check out the Freebie Vault. I have resources for K-6 included.

A quick note: MANY of my resources say Benchmark Advance in the title. That’s because I create a lot of resources aligned to this curriculum. However, lots of them can be used independently of Benchmark Advance, and can work for any student. The ones that ONLY work for Benchmark teachers are indicated with an asterisk.
