K-12 Digital Content Repository

You can use the repository below to find, share, and rate both free and paid digital content options that can be used in your K-12 classroom. Because this repository is crowd-sourced, each resource listed has been submitted by a fellow educator who believes in the value of this resource to meet the unique learning needs of K-12 students.

Keeping pedagogy at the center of your classroom

As you navigate the many content resources listed in this repository, we encourage you to consider using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) instructional framework to integrate these varied resources into your classroom. To help you get started, we’ve created a 2-page PDF that overviews the UDL framework and offers practical strategies for incorporating digital content into your curriculum in a way that is purposeful and effective for ALL learners.

Online curriculum for teaching coding and computer science skills. K-2 and 3-5 available. Teaches through animated tutorials and activities. Most coding is drag and drop block coding. Javascript options for older students are optional and not optimal for getting kids to actually use Javascript. However, the program is a good one: It is organized, with linear lessons and units, and includes basic concept of computer science such as looping and variables, so it is great for building a more formal curriculum, even with teachers who are not computer science wizards. Also, the teacher can load students and track their progress.

Website focused on arts and culture. There is material available for K-12 but educator may need to view first for younger children. Some apps available too to do interactive things with art. Sample activities available on the website: Close ups of paintings and other works of art, slideshow walkthroughs of pieces of art, views from the top of the Taj Mahal and Paris rooftops, tour iconic Italian sites, "zoom in" on artwork, where to find 8 fascinating public sculptures, etc. Apps available on the site allow you to make a painting out of a selfie, transform yourself into art, project artwork into your kitchen, etc. There is also a link to mazes and coloring pages related to famous works of art and another link out from the site devoted to scientific collections from NASA and CERN.

When your child reads, he or she looks at the written words on a page and decides what spoken words the written words represent. But that doesn’t help him understand what he is reading unless he also knows the meanings of those spoken words.

The collection of spoken words that a child understands is usually called his or her oral vocabulary. The larger a child’s oral vocabulary, the more words he or she will be able to read and understand.

There are many ways to increase a child’s oral vocabulary, and different children learn in different ways. The best way is just to talk together about the people and things that are in your child’s world. You can also build oral vocabulary when you share books, stories, songs and rhymes, and talk about the meanings of words. Games and puzzles can help, too.

Along with these resources, ABCmouse.com offers an extensive glossary with definitions of hundreds words in child-friendly language.
