Home-Based Learning Resources

 

     Home-Based Learning Additional Resources for Non-Student Days

This is a guide designed to help parents/guardians support their children during non-student days due to COVID-19 guidelines.  Please consider the following suggestions:


Create a consistent time for your child to complete their Home-Based Learning packets and contact their teacher if there are any questions.

 

Consider the following enrichment activities:

  • Independent or shared reading- ask a question about the book or read a book together
  • Creative writing, poetry, journaling, writing a letter or making a card for residents at Palm Village and Sierra View in Reedley.
    • Palm Village Resident, 703 W. Herbert, Reedley
    • Sierra View Resident ℅ Julia Duran or Kelly Brady, 1155 E. Springfield Ave., Reedley
  • Artistic/creative options -- drawing, painting, music, play-doh, puzzles, legos, dress up, cooking, photography, etc. 
  • Math journal -- what math problems can you create as you look around your house? (example: There are 15 pairs of socks, how many individual socks are there? How many more white socks than blue socks?) 
  • Science experiment or exploration

For digital resources, first, visit your child’s school website to access programs and applications used by the site.
