Online Enrichment Circles

Online enrichment circles will offer students in Grades 1-8 the chance to join other learners their age to enrich important Language Arts, Mathematics and STEAM skills to complement their regular school program. Pickering College teachers will meet their students online once a week per subject to review important concepts and introduce new ideas which will give students academic confidence. In between live lessons, students will be provided with extension work to complete and bring to the next class. Live lessons will be in small groups where students and teachers will work together to explore key concepts through interactive tasks and group activities. Students can take subjects separately or as a bundle.

Online Language Arts circles 

 

Join us once a week for fun and engaging small group sessions with Pickering College teachers to sharpen reading techniques, discuss interesting texts and strengthen writing skills. Participants will share their personal interests and favourite stories for group discussion and tackle big questions together. Each week, students will read a popular and engaging text and then write a short response in the style of that text. Teachers will give guidance and encouragement to students. Teachers will also provide extension activities for students to complete independently in between sessions. This program is a must for any student wanting to make sure their language arts skills are sharp during the school year.

Each term is comprised of a total of eight lessons with no classes on school holidays.
