Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hopkinton District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards for Math for elementary school focus on operations and algebraic thinking. When students are multiplying, they need to recognize rules that are always true about certain types of multiplication problems. There are four common multiplication properties – the commutative property, the associative property, the identity property and the distributive property – which give students different ways to understand the function they are performing from a critical standpoint.
The Common Core Standards for English places emphasis on writing. Students learn how to construct an essay, the steps of the writing process (prewriting, identifying the topic and thesis, writing drafts, revising), how to construct a written answer to an open-ended question, an explanation of terms often used in open-response questions (e.g.: analyze, compare/contrast, interpret, or justify), a guide on how to devise an outline, a thorough explanation of plagiarism and how to avoid it, guidelines for writing a bibliography or works cited page, and how to cite sources within the body of a paper.

Chalk Talk: Homework Help
Parents walk the tightrope between helping children too much or too little when they have a homework assignment. There are a few things that parents can do, however. First, help the child make a checklist of what they need to do. Make sure the list addresses which parts should be finished first, when it is due and any special materials needed. Then go over the directions with the child to make sure the directions are clear. There may be a word, or phrase, that the child does not understand and can be slowing them down. Parents should also observe the child while they are working to see if they are becoming frustrated. If this is occurring, allow them to take a short break so when they come back, they may be able to face the work with a clear mind. Finally, to help make the material they are learning relevant to their lives, talk about the material with the child and brainstorm its importance.
