Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Whitecourt District Curriculum

In the Language Arts curriculum, there are specific anchor standards, examples include using strategies and cues, responding to texts, and generating original texts. There is a detailed explanation of each of these anchor standards for each grade level. For example, when students use prior knowledge, they describe how this existing knowledge and experiences contributes to their understanding of new information. More specific standards that explain exactly what students are expected to do branch off of each general outcome.

The Math curriculum has been designed so that students begin by developing a base of skills in computation, measurement, mathematic literacy, and some basic mathematic reasoning. Further along, the focus is on functions and operations, precise measurement, estimation and modeling of quantitative data, and abstract and proportional reasoning. A big picture goal of the math curriculum is for students to be able to determine the most efficient way to solve a problem. They also are able to take these tools to become problem-solvers throughout their lives.

  • Students Engage with the Community and Learn Math - Mrs. Woodford’s Math 20-3 class at Hilltop Jr./Sr. High visited Whitecourt Senior’s Circle and met one of their learning outcomes: engaging with the community while learning math! The student-generated 10% Project idea involved students learning how to play cribbage from 16 more experienced seniors. Prior to the field trip, students practiced counting their hands, made rules sheets, and played the game against one another. The project reinforced how they can practice meaningful mathematics in their everyday lives.

  • WCS Receives 63 Rainbow Trout as Part of Alberta Environment Program - Whitecourt Central School is one of only 41 schools in the province that is part of the Fish in Schools (FinS) program from Alberta Environment. The school’s new library aquarium recently became home to 63 rainbow trout, which were raised from the eggs. In the wild, typically only 10 percent of these fish survive their first year of birth; however, being in the controlled environment of the aquarium will allow a much higher percentage to survive.

Chalk Talk: The Long ‘U’ Sound

The long ‘U’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Students can distinguish this from the short ‘U’ by learning that the long ‘U’ sounds exactly like how they would say the name of the letter “U” (“you”). Words such as mute, dune, and tube contain this sound. As is evident from these examples, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end with an ‘E’ usually make a long ‘U’ sound. The long ‘U’ sound my be formed by many different unique combinations of letters. Sometimes—but not always—“oo” can make the same sound as a long ‘U’; examples include loop and boo. The “ew”—as in few and view—combination almost always makes this sound. Another example is “ue”: due and blue. Some combinations that can also make the short ‘U’ sound are “ou” (group), “oe” (shoe), and “ui” (suit).
