Grades 6-9 Learning at Home

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Guidelines

Teachers will plan and deliver learning activities designed to advance student learning at a regular pace. Mathematics, Language Arts and other programing will be scheduled by the teacher. Communicate with your teacher about your needs and your home schedule, as well as the level of support you are able to offer your child. If there are issues with technology or with the lessons, please let your child’s teacher know right away.

Our purpose is to engage your child in continuing their learning. 

Schedules

Students in Grades 6-9 still seek out and perform better with a daily routine. They respond best when they know what to expect and what is expected of them. Building in healthy meals and snacks at regular times, outdoor activity, and hands-on activities throughout the day are very important in developing confidence and skills with our young children. 

Give your child family responsibilities and daily chores such as meal preparation, cleaning, yard work. Your child will also enjoy learning more with you about things you enjoy and are passionate about. Share your expertise and passion in things such as cooking,  gardening, farming, painting, etc. Your child may also have an area of interest that they would like to develop or explore.​

Here are some additional things to consider when developing your expectations and routines:

  • the age of your child 
  • the number of children you have in the home 
  • the type of learning activities that have been assigned
  • access to technology
  • how long your child  can work on a learning activity and how often they will need breaks
  • your own schedule
  • an appropriate work space
The β€‹sample schedule below is from the spring of 2020 and is applicable to supplemental learning. Classroom teachers will now provide the learning plan but there are some great ideas of things to do that will be fun and engaging for your child.​

Math at Home

​​Thank you for encouraging your child during these unusual circumstances.

At this time we hope you are able to find joy working with your child to practice the skills they have already acquired. This is the perfect time to celebrate your child's accomplishments and to help build mathematical confidence.

Your child's teacher will continue to share appropriate practice materials to guide your time together. Remember there is still value in the everyday math that you do regularly (eg. baking, playing games, noticing patterns).

Most importantly keep in mind that your experiences together should be remembered as an enjoyable time. If you and your child are struggling to work on the assignments together, check in with your teacher.
