Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Martensville District Curriculum
Prairie Spirit School Division No. 206 utilizes the Saskatchewan Curriculum. The Aim & Goals are broad statements that highlight what students are expected to be able to learn and do in each content area. For example, for math, the Aim & Goals are in the areas of logical thinking, number sense, spatial sense, and mathematics as a human endeavor. Logical and quantitative thinking involves developing mathematical reasoning and applying it to new situations and problems using appropriate strategies.
In order to develop this logical thinking, students need to be actively engaged in and understand connections between the different strategies and skills. Number sense involves such skills as relating different operations, modeling and representing numbers and operations, understanding equality and inequality, and being able to identify and describe patterns,. Spatial sense requires that students understand how to work with both 2- and 3-dimensional objects and how they relate to numbers and other operations.

Keeping Informed: Recent Martensville Educational News
- School Project Helps Parents Work With Children on Literacy Skills - Martenville’s Venture Heights Elementary recently kicked off its “One School, One Book, One Community” literacy project. Each student received a copy of the book “Love That Dog” by Sharon Creek. Using the book, parents can help their children with their inferring skills—as students try to understand how the main character responds to his teacher’s poetry lessons each day—by filling in the blanks with clues given by the author. Parents can also help their children work on their questioning skills.
- Major Renovations Coming to Martensville High - New renovations to Martensville High—worth $26.4 million—including a new gym and performing arts theatre, are expected to double the size of the school and be completed by fall 2016. The expansions will provide students with more space to learn, participate in sports, and enjoy arts and culture. The school also recently constructed the 50,000 square foot multi-purpose facility called the Martensville Athletic Pavilion, which is comparable to the size of the University of Saskatchewan’s athletic facility.
- Valley Manor Students Jump Rope for the Heart - Valley Manor Elementary in Martensville recently held Jump Rope for the Heart—an event to both encourage students to be physically a drive, while also raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. In 2015, the school raised an astounding $36,673.63, making it the top fundraising school of all time in the province. The goal for 2016 was to have every student in the school participate and try to donate a minimum of $5. Students who reside registered online received a free jump rope, and students participated in the event both in and outside of the gym.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Reading Insertion Miscues
When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. One type of miscue is an insertion miscue, which occurs when a reader inserts a word or words that are not in the text. Sometimes, students insert words as they are trying to make sense of what they are reading. For example, in the sentence “All [of] the kids went outside to play,” if the child added the word of, it doesn't change change the meaning of the sentence.
