Hi parents/ guardians! Here are some links to guides on how you can help your young child practice reading and writing at home. Take care!
Students, Parents, Guardians:
I hope you are all doing well, and have been learning together. One of the wonderful parts of this whole event is that we get to spend time together working, learning and playing. We get to practice the skills we have been learning about in class.
Students: How many of you have helped an adult to prepare a meal, or build something? How many of you have seen the signs of spring outside? Are there any different birds in the area than there were 1 month ago? Are you having fun working and playing together with the people who live in your house? Have any of you sat down and read a book, tucked in a corner with your blanket wrapped around you? How about drawing a picture? Have lots of fun in each day!
The login information for Mathletics, Prodigy, and Raz-Kids was sent home in our last home package.
The links are:

Have a wonderful day!

Re: Homework Package
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Some students learn better through visual/pictures. And listening is also important skill that student needs to be taught. Please see the attached educational and fun listening games that you can play with your child. Listening games that your child can have fun while working and or practicing their listening skills. I have attached learning activities (hands-on learning) and educational/fun listening games for your child to share with you.
1. Alphabet Rhymes - is a phonological awareness game where players think and provide a rhyming words for the item.
2. Apple to Oranges - is a noun/verb agreement game. The goal of the game is to practice noun/verb agreement with has/have and does/do. The player try to change the apples to oranges by correctly determining noun/verb agreement in sentences.
3. One Step at a Time - is a riddle game. The player try to solve the three-item riddles.
Listed below are some activities and different websites that have great information and activities that would be helpful for your child to participate in each day:
English Language Arts
a) Writing/tracing their names/shapes/alphabet picture tracing.
b) Write in a journal at least 4-5 times a week. Your child could practice their writing skills by writing about their daily experiences, writing letters or notes to loved ones, about what is happening in the World, how you feel about what is going on, what people are talking about around you and items that were hard to find in the grocery store.
Reading - Read for at least 15 minutes a day. I strongly encourage your child to read on a regular basis. Your child could also practice reading books from home, reading recipes, box labels and or their written work and counting books. It would also be beneficial for your child to listen to stories. If you’re looking for a helpful website, https://www.storylineonline.net/ has a lot of stories that children can listen to and Scholastic Canada: Learn at Home https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome.html
a) Counting - Your child can use some objects around your home (toys, kitchen utensils, coins, cereal, blocks, beads, etc.) to practice counting.
b) Counting out loud and 1 less or 1 more worksheet.
c) Large and Smallest Numbers - students learn to read 3 digit numbers, place value and comparing numbers. Please encourage your child to read the numbers aloud.
d) Hands-on learning activities-play games with siblings or parents, like “I Spy”, shape and number hunt. They can also set microwave, spot numbers in books/newspapers and measure items around the house. Compare and organize their toys (by color and smallest to biggest or shortest to tallest).
Movement breaks- do some yoga exercise, go for a walk, help with chores, stretch the legs, etc.
a) Please visit MFNERC Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/mfnerc. MFNERC Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist are sharing movement ideas for students to do at home to motivate them to keep moving (prizes involved). And every Wednesday MFNERC Speech and Language Pathologist and Literacy Coaches are also posting/sharing different activities for students.

Spring has arrived and summer holidays are just around the corner. I hope you are all doing well, keeping yourselves busy and enjoying your time at home. I have been very busy teaching my boys school, making maple syrup and eating way too much food.
There are two options for you to complete your assignments and earn your credit.
#1) Join Google Classroom and complete the assignments online. For this option you need a google email. If you don’t have one, create one. Then you will send me an email and I will send you an invitation to our classroom. All of my contact information was included in your homework packages. Once you’ve joined our classroom you can do assignments, journals, ask me questions, share pictures etc. Take time to check out all the classroom options.
#2) (For the people who don’t have internet access) You will call me to request hard copies of the assignments and resources and I will mail them to you.
It is extremely important that your assignments are completed and returned to me if you wish to earn your credit.
I will be setting up a homework drop off time and place once all students have contacted me either through email, texts or phone calls. All assignments from the first homework package will be expected to be handed in at that time.
Take care of yourselves, practice social distancing and stay close to home. I miss you all.
Please contact me with any questions you have.
Hope everyone is safe and doing well in these times of uncertainty.
