On April 2, 2020, the NB Department of Education and Early Childhood Development provided a Continuity of Learning Plan including general home learning options outlined for each grade level. In consultation with a teacher from your child’s school, families are encouraged to have students participate in these options as well as daily activities to promote physical and mental health. On a weekly basis, your child’s assigned teacher will check-in with your family to maintain a social connection with the school as well as support you with selecting home learning options appropriate for your child and family from the bank of resources below. As your family continues to adapt to changes at home and the impacts of COVID-19, our goal is to support you in maintaining a personalized approach to home learning that suits your family and child.
Parents and students can expect the following to occur in the days and weeks to come:
- Maintain a primary focus on play, physical activity and skill development to promote physical and mental health.
- Flexibility, collaboration and innovation as we all learn new ways to support home learning.
- Contact from an assigned teacher to discuss potential learning options in your home.
- Weekly check-in from an assigned teacher to maintain social connections and support you in selecting and participating in home learning options from the bank of resources below.
Families are encouraged by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to use the recommended guidelines
for selecting and participating in home learning options.
Given families are adapting to changes at home due to the current state of emergency, it is understood that some families will not be able to consistently follow these suggested guidelines. You are encouraged to utilize the resources below while continuing to consult with your child’s assigned teacher to discuss possible personalized learning options in your home that suit your family dynamics and child’s development.
