Remote Learning & Teaching
NEW! Songs and activities for Spanish learners
We are excited to bring you a new library of activities related to Spanish songs for your mid- to intermediate-high Spanish learners. They are designed to be posted via a discussion forum like the Wayside Learning Site Classroom Forum or Google Classroom. Activities for each song can be posted all at once for students to complete at their own pace, or posted daily for completion.

NEW! The Learning Site—now integrated with Google Classroom

Free download - Tips & Tools for Remote Learning and Teaching with The Learning Site
As a way to support our teachers and students, we have created a tip sheet that describes how the Learning Site will aid in teaching and learning remotely.
The Learning Site provides the pathway to all of our performance-based digital resources so that you can continue teaching and learning without interruption. Set clear objectives and learning goals, explore all of the differentiated activities for students and give timely and effective feedback online.
Before you download our tip sheet, remember that changing learning environments can present challenges. Keep the following in mind:
- Ensure that lessons are equitable, flexible, and accessible to all.
- Practice new changes in procedures including how to log in to the Learning Site in advance.
Review digital etiquette.
