COVID-19 Resource page

We are aware that most of you are still teaching and connecting with students at home. To help support at-home learning, Box Cars has been sending out free resources via our “Math at Home” email campaigns, which we encourage teachers to forward onto their families. These games typically use cards and regular spotted dice, as these supplies are easily accessible to families. (If you are interested in our family-oriented resources, please click HERE) Also included in these emails are directions, gameboards and journal ideas, as well as free English Youtube videos that you can also share with your families.

In terms of Box Cars’ Math Games at Home Permission Use:  Our intent is that the teacher is the teacher and that our resources are an assist to that instruction, not instead of teacher instruction. 

REPRODUCIBLES: Teachers are allowed to use our reproducibles as they would in a classroom setting. For example, if they needed to make 20 copies of a recording sheet for a classroom lesson, that is fine. Using that same analogy, if a teacher needed to send a copy of a recording sheet home to their students either individually, electronically (email) or as a portion of a small packet, that is still within the intended use and intended permissions for our resources. We are asking that teachers NOT send home complete rules and follow up questions with each student but only to those few students who truly need that as an addition to what the teacher is instructing.

VIDEOS: Teachers are also permitted and encouraged to share links to our videos that are on our Youtube channel (Boxcarseducation) as well as any videos we link to in our emails.  

A NOTE ON SHIPPING: Normally we turn orders around daily, but for safety reasons, and because volume has decreased, we will only be sending out orders once a week. Shipments will not be sent until our shipper has received direct confirmation that we are sending to a HOME address and that someone will be available to receive the parcel. Most schools are closed and may not be able to receive a shipment. We are doing this to ensure that orders do not get lost, stolen, turned around, or misplaced.

CONTACT: Our main office is closed, but we are still answering email and phone messages, so do not hesitate to reach out to us regarding an order, professional development inquiries, or anything at all. We are always happy to help!

We appreciate your continued professional support, and we hope to see you all happy, healthy and safe on the other side. All the best from the Box Cars Team.
