Kids Corner – Educational Resources for Home

Mar 16, 2020

“The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.” – B. B. King

BCTV has created this page to collect and share free access, online resources to keep children engaged with educational materials while they are not in school due to COVID-19 closures. Many schools are also providing resources to students, and we encourage you to check with your local school districts for any items that they may distribute.

This is also a wonderful time for creative arts and reading. Many of our local libraries offer online or digital materials options, too!

If you are having difficulty communicating with your child about this public health situation, the PA Department of Health has issued this helpful guide: Talking with children about Coronavirus Disease 2019

We will continue to add additional resources to this page.
