Recently, we’ve been listening to the podcast The Unexplained Disappearance of Mars Patel as part of our literacy focus on inferring and making predictions. Students have really been loving this Sci-Fi-Action-Mystery!

Here are some other podcasts that your curious kids might enjoy! Podcasts are a great way to spend time together.

Podcast “Stories”

Khan Academy and Prodigy are fantastic ways to extend math learning at home! I have created a Prodigy classroom. Students can use my classroom code (F13953) to be a part of my classroom. I have posted assignments, so that students will be given questions related to what we are learning in math. Khan academy has amazing content for many subject areas. Students can log into Khan Academy using their HWDSB credentials.

Students can read at home to practice literacy skills. They can also post on our class blog, post questions to the Inquiry Stream, or visit “Interesting Sites that Encourage Wonder”.
