Educational resources. If you have any questions or have some candidates and you’d like an evaluation, please let me know. I’ll be happy to look into it. Some of the curricular items you might like to consider or look into.

  1. ADST: Don’t forget about coding as a key skill for youth:
    1. Code.org
    2. Tynker
  1. Math: Remember Math is a skill that requires practice and application. Problems and real-life applications are the main point, not an afterthought.
    1. Matific https://www.matific.com/ca/en-ca/home/
    2. Math: Free Projects from Teachers Pay Teachers along with Jump Math for exercises.
  2. Language Arts: Remember Language Arts is about reading and writing. American suppliers like to emphasize grammar but the BC School System wants children to learn reading with comprehension and writing to communicate with others.
    1. Well Trained Mind (Language Lessons and Writing with ease, not the rest.)
    2. Bravewriter (This gets rave reviews, order from The Learning House, look for funny names like “Jot it down”)
    3. Excellent Resources
  3. Social Studies: Remember these areas of study often require planning. Consider spending a year  Canadian Social Studies has more Civics. It’s quite different from American Social Studies, which is largely History.
