Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gulfport District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students begin in kindergarten by reading and discussing the important aspects of a story. The students re-tell stories in their own words to show comprehension and analysis. In high school, students take the skills they have gathered since kindergarten to analyze all types of texts. When they graduate, these students are able to look at a topic with understanding and with the skills to learn more.
In Social Studies, students begin by hearing or reading a book and discussing the time line of the story to discern past, present and future. As their education continues, they compare and contrast the roles of people in the community as they visit them and keep a travel log. Students then are able to look at people outside their community, or even those that originally settled in the area, to see how these people influenced the world they are in today. When they finish high school, these students will have the tools to understand past events and how these occurrences shape the world of today and tomorrow.

Chalk Talk: Helping Children Memorize Sight Words
Sight words make up a majority of a person’s everyday vocabulary. To help a child memorize these words can be challenging and rewarding. One option to make this easier is to make flashcards of each word, then spend a few minutes every day reviewing or introducing new words until the child can recognize it easily. Another method is to label objects throughout the house. As the child goes to the labeled item, they say the word that is written before interacting with the object. A third method to help children learn these words is to create magnets out of the words and allow the child to arrange the magnets in sentences. Before long these words will become easy for the child to recognize.
