Pacific Edge Publishing has been creating high quality teaching resources for 25 years. These resources have been designed to address learning outcomes mandated by Canadian provincial Ministries of Education. Many were authored by teachers who drew from their experiences in the classroom to meet the needs of their students. Many are cross-curricular units, developing skills in subjects such as Reading, Writing, Science, Social Studies and the Arts in one package. Designed for busy teachers to easily implement in their classrooms, they will provide home schooling parents with time-tested, reliable materials to help your children continue to develop learning skills. Full descriptions, including Grade Level suitability, are provided for each resource.
Here are some suggestions to help you get started.
