In Language Arts, students begin with sight words and storybooks in the first year of school. These young students learn to recognize the words for each number up to ten, their color words, and words made up of two to four letters. When they enter second grade they learn how to use a dictionary, including the use of guide words and parts of speech. Once in high school, they discover literature from the Middle Ages and Anglo-Saxon times, including the dramas and poetry.
Math is also addressed in the beginning years Horn Lake Public Schools.

Chalk Talk: How to Request Help for a Child
Once a parent realizes that they need to seek assistance for their child, the next step is to decide what to do next. The next step would be to connect with the child’s teacher to see if they might have some suggestions. Today, many teachers have email, which may be the quickest way to make this contact. When going into the meeting, it is a good idea to let the teacher know if you are looking for suggestions, or if you are asking for help. Keep an open mind during the meeting and make sure the child knows that the teacher and you are working together to assist the student. Once this foundation has been laid, the pathway is open to gaining the help that is needed.
