Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lafayette District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins with an introduction to the fundamentals including patterning, shape recognition, measurement and other topics. Mathematics learning in the later grades focuses on building problem solving and reasoning skills and teaching students how algebra, geometry and data are used in mathematical decision making. Students also learn about topics that integrate math and technology, learn how to work with algorithms and see real world applicability in these lessons.
In Language Arts, students learn how to identify character traits from stories and write journal entries about the characters, listen to their teacher read an informational text describing parts of speech, compare and contrast using venn diagrams, and write a multi-paragraph essay about the characters using graphic organizers. Students learn how to organize their ideas for longer writing such as research projects and are able to use these skills in all their courses.
