Under the leadership of Mariah Morris, the 2019 Burroughs Wellcome Fund North Carolina Teacher of the Year, a cohort of educators is compiling daily resources for distance learning. It is called T.O.Y. Time.
At 9 a.m. each day, an elementary lesson (grades K-5) will be posted, and then at 9:30 a.m. each day, a secondary lesson (grades 6-12) will be posted on Morris’ YouTube channel. You can find the lessons below.
We will be updating this article with the latest lessons daily. If you are an educator who would like to participate by submitting a video, click here for the guidelines.
Starting March 30, the state Department of Public Instruction and UNC-TV have partnered together to provide programming for students from fourth through 12th grade. This schedule, available both on TV and online, were created to complement existing remote learning efforts from the state’s public schools. If you are looking for pre-K through third grade content, you can access the PBS Kid’s channel Rootle, stream it online, or see the TV schedule here.
Lastly, Best NC has created a page with free remote learning resources. Resources can be broken up by subject matter, provider, and more. See below to help your K-12 students at home.
