Head Start students can access learning at home in July

July 16, 2020

To help our youngest students continue learning, the MPS Head Start program is now offering summer activities available at home. For the month of July, families can help their children learn through Google Classroom. Children ages 3 and 4 who were enrolled in Head Start in spring will have access. The program is available July 6 to 31, 2020.

When families sign in, they will be able to see important updates and reach Frog Street for Young Learners, an award-winning curriculum for use at home. Children can read online books in English and Spanish and take part in a wide range of learning activities. Young students can stay engaged in learning, continue to grow important skills, and build essential knowledge to help become strong readers. Also included are resources for health, mental health, disabilities, and family engagement.

Families will need a tablet or laptop with Internet access or can engage in learning on a cell phone. A free Gmail account is needed to reach Google Classroom.

To access, families can go to https://classroom.google.com. Click on the + (plus sign) at the top right, click Join Class, and enter this class code: zybb5fb

New lesson plans will be available each week. Help your child learn and grow over the summer through this exciting, free opportunity!
