MINISTRY OF EDUCATION
TO ELIMINATE ILLITERACY, TO MODERNIZE EDUCATION, TO STRENGTHEN TOLERANCE
__________________________________________________________________________________________
To the Parents and Guardians of Primary School-aged Learners:

The Ministry of Education seeks to ensure that our learners are safe and meaningfully occupied during the
COVID-19 Pandemic period. We understand that this is uncharted territory and that you may become frustrated
while attempting to adapt to the new lifestyle of social and physical distancing and all that comes with it. We
encourage you to follow all the precautionary measures issued by the Ministry of Public Health.

Our learners are and will continue to be at home indefinitely during this Pandemic and we are aware that you
are concerned about your child’s academic Life and the continuation of his/her educational journey.

Please note that the Ministry of Education has and will continue to chart a course to provide our learners with
access to continuous learning. To this end, we have compiled worksheets for Grade One learners.

We expect that each worksheet is completed by the learner with guidance from the parent. Additional exercises
based on each work sheet can also be given to learners. There should be no rush to complete the booklet.
Learners should work at their own pace. Please remember to be patient and supportive bearing in mind that
this home-based teaching/learning arrangement may be new to both of you. When in doubt, teachers should
be contacted for guidance. Our teachers who will continue to communicate with you and learners via the
internet will be more than willing to give guidance.

You are also reminded that learning can take place anywhere and at any time. Along with completing the
worksheets provided you can also conduct any of the activities listed below with your child/children while they
are at home.

1. Use this period to teach social graces, and how to care for body parts.
2. Find time to bond with your children and help the family to relax and communicate.
3. Teach skill sets they will not be taught at school.
4. Teach children anger management and how to deal with stress.
5. Introduce your child/children to the concept of sustainability.
6. Sing songs with your child/children, encourage them to compose songs and participate in a singing
competition.
7. Encourage your child/children to do art work using materials from within the home or the environment.
8. Conduct tree planting exercises or gardening with your child/children.
9. Encourage your child/children to create games.
10. Have your child/children conduct experiments under your supervision.
11. Plan with the family what every activity will be: Schedule activities for each person and give a topic for
the day which will be discussed as a family.

Remember do encourage your child/children to have a “growth mindset”. We will all be stronger and more
committed by putting education first when we come out on the other side of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

For more information and access to additional resources to support your child please continue to use the
Ministry of Education website (education.gov.gy) and our Facebook and Instagram pages. Also, stay tuned to
the Guyana Learning Channel and the local radio/television stations.
