Learning Activity Packages

Each week will include a minimum of 3 math, 3 English, 1 science, 1 social studies, 1 writing, 1 reading, 1 spelling, 1 art, and 1 STEM activity, as well as an ongoing independent project assignment, so students will have an average of about 3 activities to complete per weekday, with additional optional activities in many subjects to assist those who require additional practice. Every week will focus multiple activities around a single concept for each subject to allow time for in depth learning and understanding of every concept.


This program is as flexible as you need it to be. For those who enjoy getting things done and having the afternoon off, or anyone who doesn’t do mornings well and prefers to do most lessons after lunch, you can do that! That is why we have an hour of Zoom instruction both in the morning and afternoon so you can choose to attend one, the other, neither, or both depending on your schedule and needs on any given day. If you are a competitive athlete and have to be at practice early one or more days a week, that’s fine, you can get your activities done before you leave, or do extra on other days so you don’t have as much to do on practice days.

Students can choose how much and what type of instruction they prefer for any given lesson. Most lessons will provide a combination of teacher lead instruction and hands on learning, YouTube videos on the subject, and simple written descriptions and examples. So students who are able to grasp new concepts quickly can choose the video or written examples and get going without having to wait for the teacher to go through the lesson. And students who prefer the hands on learning will have the teacher there to guide them through the material before they start their work.


As often as we can in the majority of subjects, we try to use activities and hands on learning over straight up worksheets to keep learning fun and interesting. For some subjects, like English, most activities more closely resemble worksheets, as those are the resources we currently have available, though we are constantly working to find alternatives to add.
Most of our activities only require the page to be printed out (or have it on screen and write answers on your own paper or whiteboard) and it’s ready to go. Others only need basic supplies that most people will already have around the house, for example, small objects to use as counters for math, a pair of dice, Lego (for math as well as STEM building), Styrofoam cups, plain or coloured paper, graph paper, white glue (a couple STEM projects may require adult assistance with hot glue), scissors, markers, paint, cardboard, empty toilet paper or paper towel rolls (For STEM). Supplies needed will vary slightly depending on grade. Each activity will give a list of any needed supplies in the instructions. Our goal is for our program to be as self sufficient as possible so families don’t need to spend additional money on supplies.


The STEM activities included in the program promote critical thinking skills as well as introducing various science, math and engineering topics and concepts in a fun way. Activities can include building something that moves or flies, brain teasers or trial and error activities where students have to make adjustments and try different things to find the best result, outside the box thinking activities where the answer is never the obvious choice, or building something to achieve a particular goal.
