Continuing educational opportunities for students during school closure is important to us. Below you will find some suggested resources and activities to do at-home with your child. Some of the resources are online and require access to a computer, tablet or smartphone with access to the internet. The list also includes activities that do not require a computer. If you would like printed resources, you may pick up printed work packets at your child’s school.
Children benefit from established routines for learning. Setting up a dedicated time and space at home for school work can help students focus and learn more effectively. The activities listed below can provide your child a continued routine for school-work. As it is the case in school, remember that including time for breaks, lunch and recess is also important.
Teachers have also provided additional educational opportunities for students. We encourage you and your child to access these materials through Clever (instructions for how to access are provided below). If you need printed materials, please contact your child’s teacher.
