Year 2 School Closure - Learning From Home Pack

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 95 pages | Years: 2

A collection of age-appropriate Year 2 teaching resources and activities to help parents homeschool their children, or for teachers to send home with students during unexpected school closures.

The Teach Starter team has handpicked this learning from home resource pack to include a range of resources that children can complete at home with the assistance of parents or guardians in the event of schools being closed or while homeschooling.

Included resources in this at-home learning pack for parents or guardians cover the key learning areas of English, Maths and Science, along with some additional craft and mindfulness activities.

If schools close, or if a student needs to work remotely, this pack can be sent home with children or emailed directly to parents and guardians digitally to allow for students to complete the work remotely with minimal preparation and supervision.

The pack is designed to allow non-teachers to understand and set the tasks and activities in a home learning environment, without requiring additional resources found in a classroom. The pack can be completed digitally on a tablet/iPad or with pen and paper when printed.

For Teachers with Students Learning from Home

Can I share this pack with parents, students and other teachers?

For Parents with Children Working from Home

    What an amazing resource to provide for free. Thankyou so much. I have had to keep my child home under doctors advice because she has an immune deficiency disease and this is a huge help to make sure she does not fall behind.

    Is this Based on the Australian Curriculum or not

      Hi there Rose. The literacy and numeracy activities contained within this pack most certainly do align with the Australian Curriculum for Year 2!

    Would it possible to get answer packs for these packs?

    • Stephanie (Teach Starter)
      ·

      Hi there Michelle, thank you for your comment and your feedback. We do intend to create answer booklets for these packs... great minds think alike! As we wanted to get these great packs out to teachers and parents as quickly as possible, the answers were put aside for the time being. Keep watching the website for the answer packs to be released. Have a wonderful day!
