Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Council Bluffs District Curriculum
In the schools, Mathematics instruction aims to teach students that many mathematical relationships can exist within a given situation, to think about these situations creatively and to solve effectively and strategically. Elementary school students learn about numbers, counting and algebraic thinking. Middle school scholars are introduced to ratios and proportional relationships and statistics and probability. High school students learn statistics and probability, among other subjects.
The Language Arts curricula have several overarching principles regarding reading, writing, listening and speaking. Teachers use learning progressions to introduce successively more sophisticated ways of thinking as students learn and investigate the topic over a period of time. Students read fiction and non-fiction, develop ways to decode meaning and intention, and to express themselves in written work.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose After School Activities
Extracurricular activities can give children a much-needed break from their studies while still building skills. Sports can develop physical fitness and a love for the outdoors. Chess or math club can exercise the mind while helping form friendships among like-minded students. An art or dance class might help naturally creative children express themselves and develop their talents. But with so many options, how can a parent or child make a decision? It all depends on the student’s preferences and abilities. Here are some helpful tips to get started: Don’t try to do everything at once. It may seem obvious, but starting more than one or two activities at the same time can burn enthusiasm and energy quickly. Assess personal likes, dislikes, values, abilities and personality styles. Be honest. School is the place for requirements, but extracurricular activities should be enjoyable. Take convenience into account. And, consider joining with a friend. It may make the experience that much more enjoyable.
