Safety and the Internet
A good source of information regarding what you should talk to your child about, and what you can do as a parent, is the website, thedoorthatsnotlocked.ca. This information was provided to SMS from the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, a registered charity dedicated to the personal safety of all children.
"My Learning at Home" Website
The My Learning at Home website, http://www.manitoba.ca/mylearningathome/, provides links to over 200 videos and animations that help to explain challenging concepts in the areas of Mathematics and Science. Selected specifically for Grades 5-8 students, each video and animation has been annotated and organized by grade level to correspond with the curriculum.
