Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Folsom District Curriculum
The districts’ Language Arts curriculum utilizes the studied approach of the workshop model. This incorporates several aspects of learning into the areas of both reading and writing. For reading, students have several marked portions of study. One is Read Aloud, done by the teacher during which time the students interact with the material in some way. Shared Reading is also done between students and teacher as well as within small peer groups.
Guided Reading is done in small groups of students where the teacher can assist students to understand the material. Mini-lessons are given as short lessons which help students learn the process of reading and understanding. Independent Reading and Sharing about what is read are also important components of the program. For writing, Mini-lessons, Independent Writing and Sharing are incorporated to provide students with a well balanced learning experience.

Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child Complete His or Her Homework
Completing homework can be difficult for some students. You can help motivate them to do it, however. Students who struggle to be motivated for their homework may do better if you instigate a time for study rather than a time for work. Keeping a consistent time each day for your child is important, and having an end to that time is equally important. You can encourage your child to do their work, but try to encourage and foster an attitude and desire to learn. The homework itself is a secondary issue. You may also encourage your child that starting a homework assignment is the hardest part. Once it is started, it can be finished. If your child can’t figure out how to start their homework project, help them break it into small steps. For example, if the math homework is too intimidating, start by walking your child through the steps. First, they can open their book. Next they can get their pencil and paper ready, next they can do one single problem. And so on. Some tasks are overwhelming and breaking them down can help them tremendously.
