Support For The New School Year
It’s September! The time of year where parents everywhere try to remember their times tables, and whether i does indeed come before e except after c. All kidding aside, this is going to be a school year unlike any we’ve experienced, and, whether you are opting for in-person, remote or homeschooling, Regina Public Library can help you out. The resources below will help your family ease into learning in this challenging environment.
It can be overwhelming trying to help your children with new skills or concepts. Brainfuse is a great resource to turn to because it offers live, online tutoring between the hours of 3 PM and midnight. I once used it to ask a tutor how I can help my young children learn simple multiplication. Using a whiteboard, the tutor showed me how to use visual groupings to lay the foundation of understanding for how multiplication works. Brainfuse also offers study guides and learning activities up to grade twelve connected to the Saskatchewan curriculum, and has tutors that are fluent in French.
If you are looking for homework help titles, we have a booklist of workbooks and study guides that you can place on hold.
If you would rather access eBooks, we have lists in Overdrive, Hoopla and instructional videos in Kanopy.
We also have many online resources that will make research a snap, and our Students/Educators page even has videos to help you choose the best resource.
If you don’t have a computer at home, our locations have free computer access and Wi-Fi.
And as always, mental health should be a priority for all families, so if you are feeling overwhelmed, we have print and eBook mental health booklists for you, and Thrive Counselling through Regina Family Services, where people can access free, immediate counselling at Central Library, will be starting up again in September.
If you have any questions about these services and how to access them, call 306-777-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
