Big Learning FLES Distance Lessons have Arrived!

Foreign Language classes from winter session that were in progress as of March 13th have resumed remotely.   All families with a child registered in a continuing winter class have been emailed a link to access their child's class on the Big Learning YouTube channel.    Each lesson topic will consist of two or three 6-10 minute videos designed to introduce new vocabulary, provide drills and reviews, and encourage your child to participate using their own toys as props.  

Check the description box below each video for information on what items you child should gather (eg, something to count like legos or pennies, stuffed animals, crayons) before the lesson.  If you have not received this link, contact us at [email protected] Additional videos will be uploaded until all the lesson themes have been covered.  Check the channel on a continuing bases for new content.

Foreign Language classes (8 week classes) that were due to start in early April will begin in two weeks.  Students who have already taken at least one 8 week session this year will receive different content than brand new foreign language students.

Spring into Science with Solar Energy At-Home Version!

Spring Science remote session will begin on or about April 21st! We are experiencing some slight delays on deliveries of a few materials still needed for our kits. All kits will be delivered directly to your home via contact-less delivery during the week of April 21-23.  You should be contacted this week to confirm your delivery address.

It is not too late to order your own Solar Energy At-Home version.  Select Big Learning as your site on the location drop down menu to the left, click on Science & Engineering offerings.  We will take orders and make deliveries until we run out of kits. 

If you have ever registered for Big Learning programs, you know that we offer a tiered pricing structure which is based on the rates of students receiving free and reduced lunch at each school and we cover the difference with donations.  Because we know that some of our families have been severely impacted by business closures, we are making three price points available to families, relying on those of you who can pay the full cost of the program to do so and giving a break to those who can't.

If you would like to bring Big Learning to your school for the 2020-2021 school year, send us an email.  We begin working on our fall schedule in late May.

Big Learning staff are working remotely from their homes.  Please be patient if you leave us a phone message.  The emails below are checked M-F.
