Teaching Kids the News


I'm a teacher in the Toronto District School Board. I've started a free website called www.teachkidsnews.com . It's designed to engage young students with current events. It has three straightforward teaching points that follow each and every article.

So, if your child is searching for opportunities to expand their learning, then please visit my site. It may just be the thing you've been looking for.

I wish you all the best,
Jonathan Tilly

The illustration for the story about tsunami may lead a child to understand that a tsunami is a whirlpool or eddy. The OME standards cited are not capitalized or punctuated as complete sentences, although they are complete sentences. I would use this site to get ideas for myself, but would not send a child directly to it because of these problems.
