Scholastic: OTC Literacy – Resources for Educators and Families


OTC Literacy for Educators
A critical approach to educating fifth and sixth-grade students about medicine safety. Modeled after the FDA’s “Medicines in My Home” program. OTC Literacy was specifically created for use by 5th- and 6th-grade teachers and students. The program teaches safe medicine use to children before self-medication begins. Now in year 2, it provides even more resources to better equip educators, school nurses, and families with knowledge about responsible over-the-counter medicine use and storage.


OTC Literacy for Families
Support materials and information for families to use at home.
