How can we provide meaningful home learning experiences in math that are engaging, equitable and promote numeracy inquiry? How can we be sensitive to the needs and situations of all students and families?
Reminders from our District Continuity of Learning Plan
• 2 – 5 hours of learning opportunities per week, per student
• Do not overwhelm students / families
