Loudon District and Curriculum
The Merrimack Valley School District follows the learning standards set out in the NH College and Career Ready Standards. These standards have been developed so that the academic fundamentals students learn in elementary school are built upon and that by high school students have enough mastery of the topic to be able to do advanced, college preparatory work. The schools also focus on 21st century learning skills which include the ability to collaborate, work independently, think creatively, and communicate effectively. The goal is for students to be able to adjust to any work or learning environment which they enter after graduation.
We currently cover the following Loudon-area school district: Merrimack Valley School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Loudon District Curriculum
In the elementary reading program, students receive instruction in both whole groups and stations that focus in on one or two key skills. They read stories and informational texts so that they begin to develop the ability to understand and think critically about different types of texts. By developing the ability to recognize the purpose in an author’s writing, they become able to do the same in their own writing and learn to write in a variety of styles. The writing curriculum also emphasizes a process approach to writing whereby students brainstorm, write, edit and revise, and prepare a final presentation of their written work.
Elementary math students are introduced to the Common Core Standards for Math in operations and algebraic thinking. It is critical that students understand the relationship between multiplication and division so that they can more easily solve division problems. Specifically, they need to understand that the two are “inverse,” or opposite, operations. If they understand this, they should recognize that if, for example, 7 x 8 = 56, then 56 / 7 must equal 8. They then should also recognize that 7, 8, and 56 make up a fact family.

Chalk Talk: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words
Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. Interestingly, the word "misspell" is one of those words, with many people often leaving out one S. The word "embarrass" can be a tricky word; just remember it has double R's and S's! Meanwhile, "harass" only has one R. There are often arguments about the spelling of "argument"; it turns out the E after the U in "argue" is dropped. On the other hand, the letter E is kept in the word "changeable." This is to indicate that the G has a soft sound as opposed to the hard G you hear in "argument." "Believe" may be misspelled as "beleive"; remember that I usually comes before E except after the letter C! In the word "gauge," students may place the A and U in the wrong order. One more: The word "miniature" does include an A even though it is not pronounced.
