The goal is not to complete the curriculum, but to stimulate students’ interest and learning;
Quebec’s Education Minister Jean-François Roberge has stated that the Ministry of Education (MEES) is not expecting parents to become teachers, nor homes to become schools. The kits provided are meant as review to stimulate your children cognitively during their absence from school.

The kind folks in Educational Services at the New Frontiers School Board asked us to share these helpful tips with our families:
When working on academic activities:
• It may be helpful to include your child in planning a daily routine that includes a balance of academic time, active time and free time.
• Children experience stress too and it is important to remember to have fun.
• When planning for academic activities, consider what time of day your child is most focused.
• If it is possible, set up a consistent workspace for your child that has materials close by, such as pencils and paper.
• The use of a timer (on your phone or microwave) could be helpful to ensure children get breaks during academic activities. Understood.org recommends taking a break after 10-25 minutes, depending on your child’s age, to allow your child to take break. The MEES suggests that between blocks of academic time, students engage in other activities such as games, snacks, free time, active time, creative time, etc.
• Praise your child’s efforts and encourage their work; knowing it is okay to make mistakes.
• Keep in mind that family time is beneficial and playing games and baking together is also enriching for your child.
Always remember… during these trying and uncertain times, we understand that the stress upon families can be very overwhelming. The Ministry (MEES) has provided kits with activities per grade level, however, they are by no means intended to add additional stress to your household. The kits provided are meant as review to stimulate your children cognitively during their absence from school.
