Resources to Support Online and Home Learning

CBE has created a webpage that offers a variety of educational ideas to support literacy, numeracy, and wellness at home. The resources are meant as suggestion only. You may choose to use the links and activities as needed.

Suggestions for Learning from Home | K-9

Brentwood School has tried to put together a few additional online resources that you might find useful in supporting your child's learning. Please also consider using this information to support your child's learning at home.


Daily Schedule:

There are various versions of a daily schedule available. Work with your child(ren) to create blocks of time that they are engaging in meaningful activities, that considers downtime, and includes their passions! This will contribute to a sense of predictability, ownership and stability.

Screen Time:

It is important to have conversations now about screen time and set limits with your child(ren).

While many of the below links are to online tools, many others are to activities and tools that are not online. As you build a daily schedule, ensure a balance of hands-on, technology-based, different subjects etc.
