Ontario schools will be closed for the rest of the school year in an effort to keep Ontario’s students safe from the coronavirus.  The link provided above will let students and their parents access educational resources to help keep students learning and engaged during school closures.

I've been off work for a while this year, and fortunately I've had wonderful and dedicated teachers filling in for me.  These times are trying for all of us, and I've made all of my materials available online for parents and students to access from home.  I hope you find them helpful.

  • I have review booklets for every unit
  • Practice tests with answers are also provided
  • Long Range Plans for Math and Science - a timeline for units are under General Files
  • Math Plans and Science Plans

  • These are fun flash cards to help learn definitions and practice concepts

  • Links are provided for every subject/lesson in all math and science units

  • Most require Flash to play
  • These games really help students practice and reinforce skills learned (and they're fun too ...)

  • I would normally use these in my class, but students can access them at home too
  • Socrative lets you create a free account and you can import my practice quizzes.  They have explanations provided for each question and are great for review.
  • Kahoots are a lot of fun and I have made them for each lesson throughout the year - students can set up a game on one computer and play with friends online.
