Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Galena Park District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the Social Studies curriculum. At Galena Park schools geography helps the students become aware of the different cultures, lifestyles, countries and maps throughout the world. Students develop the ability to locate famous landmarks, such as the Himalayas, and explain the significance of the landmarks they identify. They discover how to use each of these to find similarities and differences in various cultures. By studying how various groups of people live throughout the world, they also discover how similar we all are.
The English language arts curriculum emphasizes critical reading and writing, but also contains objectives to ensure that students develop strong grammar and language skills. Work is done to familiarize students with Greek and Latin roots and affixes as well, which they can use to help identify the meaning of a word and students learn methods to decode word meanings of unfamiliar words. The proper use of adjectives and adverbs is part of the curriculum. Students learn how to choose the correct adjective or adverb depending on what is being modified.

Chalk Talk: Parental Educational Involvement At Home
There are many ways that parents can make a difference in a child’s education without leaving the home. By encouraging learning at home and by finding real-life applications for material taught at school, are just two ways to help. Some other ways to help are to take time every day to read with or in sight of the children. This shows children how enjoyable and valuable reading is. Also provide a regular routine for the children, including homework, meals and a regular bedtime. By talking at the dinner table, children build their language skills. Parents also need to monitor the amount of time children spend in front of technology and then talk about what is being watched. Finally, praise and encouragement are always essential tools to help children grow.
