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.
Please take time to visit this website with your child. We hope that My Learning at Home proves to be a useful tool for middle years students as they work to succeed in school!
