Pegasus Flight School

Kindergarten education through genre media

Purpose

As you may be aware, we have chosen to keep Pegasus home from Jr Kindergarten (Maternelle) this September. This is entirely due to Covid-19. We have nothing but the highest respect for the teachers who are working very hard to keep themselves and the children in their care safe.

I have looked at the Ontario curriculum for Kindergarten and its overall expectations. You can see them here.

To this end, we will be following a home-based curriculum around a different movie each week. Pegasus helped me come up with the movies and ideas for the activities, and is super excited to do these.

I will be posting the weekly lessons here the week before, including any worksheets I plan on printing out.
