In the unusual circumstances of COVID-19, your children may be at home during what would normally be school time. This web page can be used to access some excellent online resources to assist you. Ultimately, these materials are not a replacement for being at school and engaged in meaningful, hands-on learning, developed by your child’s teacher. But they will help your children maintain their learning and engage in thoughtful activity during these abnormal conditions.

What can a learning day look like?

In the days while your child is at home, a regular routine will still be very important. The following schedule is a possibility for structuring your day in order to balance learning, practice, physical activity, nutrition, and relaxation.

Remember to start your working day with O Canada!

We want to stress the importance of home learning occurring away from a screen. In addition to the regular learning work that your child’s teacher may assign, please consider the activities on this document as enjoyable opportunities for rich learning.
