Reading and writing outcomes are also embedded into the content areas of Science and Social Studies.

Chalk Talk: Lifelong Learning
Learning does not begin on a child’s first day of school and end when he or she graduates from high school or college. Learning is a life-long pursuit. Parents should begin to develop their children’s love of learning at an early age. In order to do this they can use the tried and true methods of flash cards and education games, or they can use everyday events as springboards for learning opportunities. Visiting local sites and learning about the history of the area is another great family option that models lifelong learning. Once people graduate from high school or college they are responsible for pursuing their own learning opportunities. They can do this by looking for new interests, or by studying and looking more deeply into older interests. Either way, they will discover new ideas and exercise their minds, which will keep them on the path of life-long learning.
