Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clayton District Curriculum

Clayton Public Schools utilize the Common Core Standards and have outlined the major shifts that have occurred from the previous standards to the new standards in order to inform parents and students. In English language arts, there is more of an emphasis on nonfiction texts and building content knowledge through these texts, reading and writing is rooted in evidence from (nonfiction or literary) texts, and there is more reading of complex texts and their academic language. The elementary grades use an Academic Vocabulary Pyramid.

At the bottom of the pyramid—Tier 1—are everyday words that children recognize, such as house and family. Tier 2 contains high utility terms, which are found in content texts and are often used across the curriculum in various disciplines; some examples are justify and explain. Lastly, Tier 3 consists of domain-specific words, which are used at a lower frequency and are specialized towards specific genres, such as solar and perimeter. In math, there is more of a focus on the concepts in the standards, coherence across grade levels and among major topics.

Chalk Talk: Fluency in Mathematics

Most people are familiar with fluency in reading, but not as many may be aware of the importance of the concept in math as well. The Common Core Standards call for students to gain fluency of specific numbers and mathematical operations by certain grade levels. Just as fluency in reading means that one reads with correct pronunciation, with flow, and at an appropriate speed, mathematical fluency means solving problems quickly and accurately with little hesitation. For example, kindergarten students are supposed to add and subtract within the number five quickly and accurately; this means they need to fluently solve 0+5, 1+4, and 2+3, for example, as well as the corresponding subtraction problems. Although it is important for math to also involve problem solving and the application of skills, students must have this fluency in order to be able to solve more complex problems.
