CBC Kids at School
Whether you’re teaching school in person or offering virtual learning, Canadian classrooms in Kindergarten to Grade 4 are invited to join CBC Kids at School! There are two age-appropriate versions of the program.
SCHOOL STORYTIME (Kindergarten - Grade 2)
Students will virtually connect with CBC Kids host Janaye through Zoom. Classes will have the opportunity to expand their early literacy skills by listening to stories from their favourite CBC Kids shows like Love Monster, The Adventures of Paddington and Molly of Denali. Following the story, students will engage in an age-appropriate discussion and play an educational game. This program is ideal for students in Kindergarten to Grade 2.
Duration: 30 Minutes
HOW VIDEO GAMES ARE MADE (Grade 3-4)
Students will have the opportunity to connect with CBC Kids host Tony through Zoom. Classes will learn how video games are made for cbckids.ca. Students will learn about the roles on a video game production team, elements of game design, character development and level design. They will discuss the importance of art design along with audio and sound effects. At the end of their session, each class will get to brainstorm their own video games ideas. The program is ideal for students in grades 3 - 4.
Duration: 45 Minutes
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Please note CBC Kids at School is a virtual experience hosted over Zoom with up to three classes in attendance and will NOT be recorded by CBC. We also request that classes do not record the program.
Due to the popularity of CBC Kids at School, we’ve increased our capacity from one classroom to three. It is a camera-optional experience with the opportunity to engage via moderated chat or microphone. If your students are participating virtually from home, their name may be visible to others.
All teachers will be added to the Zoom meet as a co-host at the beginning of the session. This will allow each teacher to admit late students as necessary, communicate directly with their classroom, view the chat messages of all their students, and mute or unmute individuals during the session.
CBC expects students to behave the same way they would during class and teachers may be asked to intervene if a student is acting inappropriately. In particular, teachers should pay close attention to students who may be attending virtually from outside of the classroom, where the environment is less controlled, and cameras and microphones may pick up unwanted background sights and sounds.
It is your responsibility to obtain all the necessary permission forms your school requires in order for your classroom to attend.
