Beginning this September, teachers will enhance their focus on ensuring that every student transitions effectively to their new grade level. This requires an acknowledgement that opportunities to learn were different for children during at-home learning and that COVID-19 produced or increased disproportional access and opportunities for some students. This is not a reflection of a student’s ability to learn but rather their opportunity to learn. A focus is needed to raise the skill level of learners. To support this work, Foundational Outcome documents (9-12 and mathematics P-12) and supplementary support documents (P-12) have been created for subjects and grades.

School shopping will start soon for many.

For younger children, please DO NOT buy shoes that lace up.

For safety, teachers and staff will not want to touch the laces but also, you don't want your child playing with the laces that have touched anything, including the bathroom floor.

Charlene Bearhead, an educator and Indigenous education advocate living near Edmonton, Alberta, says that the Siha Tooskin Knows series of eight books for middle-years readers was born out of a need.

Rhyming songs for kids - Jack Hartmann

Learning to HEAR when words rhyme is an important phonological processing skill in learning to read and spell. These videos are silly but fun and teach the concept well. Great for beginning readers!

"Just a note that social skills don't always have to be practiced indoors with a workbook. There are many other ways to get kids working on social skills.

One tip I'd give is to be purposeful about teaching and practicing social skills. For example, if you are gardening to work on patience and empathy, talk about it! Talk about how gardening can be a slow activity. You have to take care of plants, give them what they need, and wait to see them grow. Talk about how good it feels to take care of something else and how wonderful it can be when you start to see those seeds sprout!

Which of these activities is your favorite?"
