Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bay Shore District Curriculum
According to the district, the Common Core Standards necessitate several shifts for both English language arts and math. In ELA, students read as many nonfiction books as they do fiction, read more challenging texts, respond to texts using evidence, write nonfiction material that includes textual evidence, and use and know more academic vocabulary. Students explore the role and influence of setting and sequencing in developing an effective theme.
In math, there are fewer topics taught in greater depth, a focus on skill building and accuracy, and relating math to the real world. Students will begin their education by acquiring mathematics-related vocabulary and recognizing and identifying basic numbers and shapes. Students work with graphs in order to explain position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time. Graphs are also used to increase students ability to communicate math thought and solve problems that involve average velocity and acceleration.

Chalk Talk: School Communication with Families
Students hold many issues that they bring into the classroom on a daily basis. Children may be dealing with a divorce or a parent being deployed and being concerned with them daily. Oftentimes, the parents raising them works long hours and may not have the time to make sure they are keeping up with their schoolwork. It may also be difficult for them to attend parent-teacher conferences or school or class events. It is important to keep in mind that children from single-parent families have a lot weighing on them, but teachers should also avoid making misconceptions about the single parents. Many single parents are strong role models for their children, are very loving, and care a great deal about their child’s schoolwork. If it is difficult for the parent to have time to attend conferences, it is important for the teacher to reach out to him/her.
