We are thrilled to announce that Virtual High School’s sister school, Virtual Elementary School (VES), has launched three new innovative math courses for grades 1, 2, and 3!
Math can be a difficult subject for young students, and without a proper understanding of the fundamentals, students may face future academic challenges. Our VES team has created elementary math lessons that are specifically designed to help students master foundational math concepts, equipping them with the skills they need to progress, excel, and think positively about math throughout their education.
Each lesson includes prior learning activities, skill drills, core teaching, examples, consolidation, and assessments to provide a through approach that takes each student from curiosity to understanding. All Ontario curriculum expectations are covered in the courses, and creative storylines with entertaining characters help guide students through their learning. Courses promote a positive attitude by incorporating growth mindset language and using mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow. Unplug activities have also been incorporated to allow for blended learning and the use of hands-on activities.
Check out the video below to learn more about this stimulating new approach to learning math.
With grades 4–8 currently in development, we look forward to offering a full elementary math suite very soon. To learn more about our new math courses, visit www.virtualelementaryschool.com/new-math-courses.php.
