Activities and Resources For At-Home Learning

  • Activities and Resources - Letters

    During this unprecedented situation, Reading School District wants to assure our students and their families of the following:

    • We believe that families are doing their best to take care of their children during this difficult time.

    • We recognize that there are unique circumstances in every home that may impact a student’s ability to learn during this challenging situation.

    • We will support all of our students to the best of our ability during this pandemic. In turn, we ask for your patience with Reading School District and our staff as we are doing our absolute best to take care of our students in the midst of the challenges caused for them and their families by COVID-19.

    • We are continually compiling activities and family fun ideas that you can complete at home during the mandated shut down due to COVID-19. Our page will be updated as our staff member submit information so keep checking back for more resources! Plus: Make sure you're also checking your school and classroom Class Dojo accounts. Many principals and teachers are also posting activities, resources and ideas, too.

Optional Distance Learning Begins March 30

  • Beginning on Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31, our teachers will begin reaching out to families directly to provide activities and learning opportunities for students. While these are optional activities that will not be graded, they will include reteaching or enrichment ideas to help keep students engaged during the mandated shutdown. Teachers will also contact families via communication tools like Class Dojo, Google Classroom, Google Meet, or old-fashioned phone calls during the week to touch base and find out how things are going. 

    How you can help:

    • Check Class Dojo daily if you have an elementary or middle school student

    • Check for teacher phone calls + email messages

    • Access the e-mail staff directory on our free Reading School District mobile app

    • Check Google Classroom if you have a high school student. Google Classroom Codes for Reading High School students will be posted on Tuesday morning at

    What to do if you cannot access online tools:

    • Printed copies of activity packets (organized by grade levels) are available from 10 a.m. to noon  at our grab-and-go breakfast and lunch meal distribution sites (only). To see a list of the distribution sites, please visit our Food Services webpage. You can also download PDFs of the activity packets (see below).

    How do access the e-mail staff directory on the RSD mobile app

    • Also, a Reading School District staff directory is available on our free district mobile app -- available for download on Google Play and Apple iTunes.

Family Fun Activities

  • Sidewalk Chalk 🖼️
    Head outside to your front steps and write sidewalk chalk messages. You can also draw pictures, play tic-tac-toe or complete math equations. If you don't have chalk, write messages on paper and hang them on your porch or in your window.

    Indoor Bowling 🎳
    Turn your room or hallway into a bowling alley like Amanda Stout teacher Kathy Boyle and her son did this weekend. Find a household item you can stack and then use a ball to knock the items down. Practice counting by keeping a tally of how many items you knock down during each frame, and draw a picture of a trophy for your family's winner.
