Extending the Learning at Home

The Rainbow District School Board is committed to improving academic excellence by encouraging the connection between learning at home and at school.

There are many reasons to extend learning at home including:

  • supporting the development of academic skills
  • reinforcing student learning
  • developing personal responsibility
  • building effective study habits
  • establishing routines
  • creating partnerships between schools and home (eg., opportunity for parents to read with their children)

Suggested maximum home learning timelines:

JK – Grade 3 Time Guideline: 10 – 30 minutes
Grade 4 – Grade 6 Time Guideline: 30 – 60 minutes
Grade 7 – Grade 8 Time Guideline 60 – 90 Minutes

Suggestions for Learning at Home

  • Completion of unfinished work
  • Project work
  • Additional practice of skills taught
  • Studying and test preparation
  • Practical application of a skill
