Companion teacher resources are available for ELA lessons; teacher lesson plans and student work packets are available for Math lessons.

Here are guides for English language arts and math educators and parents to support the use of these at-home lessons:

The following lessons and videos have been designed for review and practice. They are intended to support students during the time of extended school closure. The department recognizes that students will have limited practice support and activities have been designed to reinforce the lesson rather than extend the learning in the lesson.
