Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ashland District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Ashland Schools includes geography. Students may begin by learning how to make a map of their room but before they know it they learn about the landforms and bodies of water throughout the world. They also learn why civilizations developed where they did and why cultures may have changed over time. The students gain a sense of their space in the world and can take ownership of the knowledge of how their land became the way it is.
The Mathematics curriculum helps children develop geometry skills from an early age. The students learn the basic shapes when they are in kindergarten, plus they learn how to take these shapes to create other shapes. As they progress, they begin to learn how to measure angles and to find the perimeter and the volume of a shape as well as the mid-point of angles and much more. Students gain problem solving skills from the geometry curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Gardening and Children
Children can gain quite a bit from helping with a garden, whether a large garden in the yard or plants in a pot. Children can learn to be curious as they see a plant develop roots and leaves, or as they discover what a plant needs to survive. They also learn patience as they have to wait for a seedling to sprout and then for a flower or produce to grow. As they work the ground and place a seed in a prepared hole, even picking the produce off of the plant, they are developing eye-hand coordination. They can learn classification by sorting plants or seeds by the color of the plant, or its height or even if the plant will produce in the fall or the summer. They gain observation skills as they watch the plant change over time. The child that grows a garden, grows so much more than a plant, they grow skills for life.
