Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charles City District Curriculum
The elementary schools have recently implemented a new math curriculum that better aligns with the Iowa Core Standards. The new math curriculum will allow students to acquire better mathematical understanding and thinking, develop their problem solving skills, and be more active participants in their learning. The curriculum will be implemented consistently from grade to grade in K-5 and helps make the transition from elementary to middle school math a much smoother one.
The reading strand of the literacy standards focuses on teaching students how to find the key idea and details in a text, understand the craft and structure used by the author, be able to integrate knowledge and ideas, and the ability to increase the complexity level of one’s reading incrementally. The writing standards focus on the purpose and type of texts students might write, the process of writing an essay or story, research and presentation of a piece of work, and the range of writing a student can produce.

This book primarily shows the joys of having a baby. In “Hannah’s Baby Sister”, Hannah is eagerly awaiting the birth of her baby sister, making all kinds of plans for her. However, she is angry when she finds out that her mother has a boy. When she holds the baby for the first time, however, she loves him right away.
