Supporting Student Learning at Home
Parents and students are often interested in ways to support their children as a supplement to their teacher's instruction in school. Below are links to online resources and websites which may be of support to you and your child in exploring topics of interest.
In no way should this list be considered a replacement for the high quality instruction that your child receives in their classroom.
BC Ministry of Education
Below are listed websites from the Ministry of Education that provide parents with suggestions, advice and tips for supporting learning at home. The first three sites are focused on supporting learning with elementary age children. The last site provides grade specific information on healthy living, physical exercise and eating, which is also downloadable in a multitude of languages.
When exploring topics with your child, three questions you can ask to promote further inquiry, dialogue and connections are: What do you notice? What do you wonder? What does this remind you of?
Encourage your child to share their thinking and learning with you in creative and engaging ways.
