Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ada District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the middle schoolers of Ada City Schools begin to delve into algebraic concepts. Linear and non-linear functional relationships are explored and problem solving of these equations is taught to the learners. Also, the students write two step equations and solve them (such as -4x + 16 = -4) with the use of one variable, or “x”. For inequalities, the students work with graphing and one-step linear inequalities using one variable.
In English Language Arts, students in the middle school program will study figurative language of all types within non-fiction, fiction, and poetry. In poetry, the students become familiar with imagery and symbolism, as well as all other types of figurative language. The students learn that imagery is the descriptive and creative use of language that creates vivid pictures in the readers’ minds, and the middle school learners will be able to identify imagery, and create their own imagery in their own written work.

Chalk Talk: What Are Manipulatives?
Teachers use manipulatives often in various subject areas, such as mathematics and science, to allow the children to experience hands-on learning. Manipulatives are items such as little cubes, base-ten blocks, colored tangrams, coins, beads, or anything that the children can manipulate with their hands to help them solve problems, usually in math. Science manipulatives can be any type of data gathering manipulative or items to help measure or solve scientific problems. Manipulatives are used in English Language Arts to help children read and spell, such as letter tiles, word tiles, phonics blends and digraph cubes.
