You may have noticed that Education.com looks a little different recently! We’re excited to reveal our updated look and introduce a few new exciting features that we think you’ll enjoy.

Skills Organization and New Exercises in Learning Resources

Until recently, millions of Education.com users visited us daily to download a worksheet or play a game. We took a close look and realized that our users wanted resources that were more focused around practicing a specific skill. In order to better help parents and teachers achieve this, our expert educator team reorganized our library of learning resources by skills. Now if you want your child to work on subject-verb agreement, you can find all the different resources we have that teach that skill on a single page, whether it’s a worksheet, game, story, activity, or exercise.

Learning Resources

Grouping our resources by skill also acts as a great tool to help parents understand what skills are covered in each grade and subject. For instance, by selecting 1st Grade and Math, parents will find that Number Sense is an important topic covered in their child’s grade.

Finally, we’re proud to introduce exercises to our collection of learning resources. To complement our games, songs, and stories, we’ve added math, reading, and writing exercises for 3rd-5th graders. Exercises allow kids to practice skills using interactive graphs, visual models, and many other components that can increase conceptual understanding. With the addition of exercises to our existing early learning program, Education.com members now have access to an entire digital learning program from Pre-K all the way through 5th grade!

Step-by-Step Lessons

New Guided Lessons

We’re extremely excited to reveal our Guided Lessons section as an integral part of the new Education.com. Our guided lessons section creates an online learning program that combines all of our learning resources into carefully designed, sequenced lessons that help kids learn math, reading, and writing skills. Through guided lessons, parents and teachers can work with children or allow them to learn independently to build foundational academic skills.

With over 150 lessons and growing, Education.com members can access our step-by-step curriculum, created by our team of experts that include national and state Teachers of the Year, accomplished curriculum designers, and veteran graduates and advisors from institutions like Stanford University and UC Berkeley graduate schools of education.

Guided Lessons are kid-safe—meaning they’re entirely free of ads—and incorporate progress reporting, so you can quickly identify areas where your learner excels or needs help.

Guided Lessons

Teaching Tools

Lastly, our Teaching Tools section is a quick place for you to access content that is relevant to educators, like our worksheet generator, lesson plans, Common Core resources, and more upcoming tools.

We really think you’ll love the new Guided Lessons and updates to Learning Resources and Teaching Tools as much as we loved making them. We at Education.com love to hear what our members have to say, so please tell us what you think about our new look and if there are any other things you’d like to see!
