Family Engagement

My Big World is a great tool for family engagement. Twice a month, each child gets their very own magazine issue to share with families. This gives caregivers high-quality reading material and helps children talk about what they are learning at school. 

Did you know that our online resources can also be used at home?

How can I share the My Big World website with families?

Easy! Just send home your Class Password. Here’s how you can find it: 

First, log in as usual.

Then click the person icon to open a drop-down menu. Click My Dashboard.

You’ll see a box on the left that says Student Access. Your Class Password is there. To change it, click Edit Password. You can choose something memorable, like your class name!

Once I find my Class Password, what should I do?

Simply share it with families!  

If you’d like, you can print our Caregiver Letter, which comes in Spanish and English. Just scroll down to the bottom of the homepage, and click here:

Don’t forget to fill in your unique Class Password.

Once they have the Class Password, how do families go online?

It’s all in the Caregiver Letter, which comes in Spanish and English.

They simply enter the URL www.scholastic.com/mybigworld, and then click Log in.

Next they should choose "I am a Student." They will be prompted to enter their Class Password. And voila!

What can families and students do at home on the website?

They can watch our videos, download printable activities, and play learning games. For even more learning and fun, they can access past issues with the archive.
