Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Elmo District Curriculum
Numbers and operations are a primary focus of the elementary math curriculum in Lake Elmo. Students learn how to use words to describe the relative size of numbers. This includes the terms “equal,” “more than,” and “less than.” Learners also acquire the ability to compare numbers as large as 120. Bar graphs and charts are introduced, with students learning how to compare data based on the visual representations they see. Composing and decomposing numbers is an additional skill that is acquired. Students work on using combinations of numbers to create a set of ten as well.
The middle school English language arts curriculum seeks to help students develop knowledge of the English language. Learners use their knowledge of conventions to develop writings that utilize various types of sentence patterns to increase reader interest. Students also become adept at maintaining a consistent style and tone in their writings. Figurative language and word relationships are explored as well. Learners interpret figures of speech and use the relationship between certain words to better understand each word’s meaning.

Chalk Talk: Encouraging Creativity
Creativity is used throughout life. It is useful when problem-solving, exploring science or when dealing with new technology and so much more. To encourage creativity in a child’s life look for interactive toys that can be used in a few ways. For example, construction paper and crayons instead of a coloring book or stuffed animals instead of talking toys. Find ways to use everyday items in place of store bought items. Think up solutions with the child and remember even if the solution does not work, they are learning how to bounce back. Parents can also build a child’s confidence by teaching them not to conform to others around them. Maybe the child drew a flower with a turquoise stem. Praise them for their unique thinking. Finally, read to a child or make up a story together instead of turning on the television or the computer. Remember creativity will grow with imagination, so parents may need to stretch their imagination muscles to help stretch their child’s.
