Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bel Air District Curriculum
The HCPS, along with the state of Maryland, has adopted the Common Core State Standards. These standards focus on building students’ skills to be ready for the workforce or further education. In mathematics, for instance, the curriculum, instruction, and assessment of learning has been aligned. Information is presented in a way that students can view math as a functional subject, versus information required to be memorized. Relating mathematical concepts to real life applications is one of the cornerstones of the curriculum.
By using the Common Core State Standards, HCPS is able to identify what skills children need from kindergarten through graduation. Because the Common Core State Standards did not include prekindergarten standards, educators from every part of Maryland collaborated to created pre-K levels to add to the existing standards. The HCPS adheres to both the standards created by Maryland for prekindergarten, as well as the objectives in Math and Language Arts laid out in the Common Core State Standards, created for kindergarten through graduation.

Chalk Talk: How to Encourage Your Child to Read
Some children are born readers. They enjoy reading on their own, and they can often be found with a book in their hands. Many children, however, seem to dislike reading. As a parent, you may hope to find a way to increase the amount of reading your non-reader is engaging in. Hopefully, by taking a look at the following three tips you will get a few helpful ideas. Find books on topics that interest your child. Use observation, your own knowledge, or simply ask your child what subjects he or she might enjoy reading about. Provide a varied selection of magazines. Do not presume what topics your child might or might not be interested in. By providing a variety of types of magazines, from gardening to do it yourself, you allow your child choices he or she may not even have considered. Read with your child. Oftentimes, if a child dislikes reading, a positive model of reading for fun can help encourage him or her to read more. Let your child choose a book and take turns reading aloud. Though your child may never “love” reading, he or she may come to appreciate its gifts. Use these tips above to help guide your child into a world of reading.
