Need a Resource or Project for Math, Literacy, or Content? Check out the PKC Guide to Distance Learning
Distance Learning. We are now here. Portland Kids Calendar has reached out to some of the area’s best and brightest teachers for their resources, which they willingly shared in hopes that it makes your day a bit easier. We all want to be sure that this resource lands with the intentions that it does not replace your child’s actual curriculum. Some school districts are closing and have a gap between closing and when distance learning materials will be in place for your child. You also just may enjoy something and want to work on it for funsies. Go for it!!
If you’re looking for ways to talk with your child about all of this or an example of a schedule please use the link to read “Find yourself looking at school closure? What to do and how to say it.”
In math, you can create projects that involve math. An example is have kids make a leprechaun trap and have them measure the perimeter and calculate the area. Got even older kiddos? Give them the area allowed and have them build one to suit your qualifications. Want to go outside? Bring string and measuring tape and measure trees. Stuck inside, have your child make you a test and you can take turns showing what you know.
Looking for links? Here are some broken down by grade span
Your child can publish a book, read aloud to stuffed animals, siblings or your pet. Kids can make movies and create book reviews like they are you tubers. So many fun projects can be made out of literacy.
