Louisville District and Curriculum
Louisville Municipal Schools believe that every student should achieve to the expected standards of learning and be well prepared for their futures. This goal is achieved through following The Core Curriculum State Standards and through continual improvement in the training of their educators in delivering these standards in a coherent pattern of skill and knowledge building.
We currently cover the following Louisville-area school district: Louisville Municipal Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Louisville District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum at Louisville Municipal Schools begins with the children learning how to relate the illustrations in a story and the story itself. They also learn to look for key details in a story and ask questions if they are unclear, or they can answer questions about these details. Children are exposed to a wide variety of genre including poems, drama, fables, folktales and myths from a variety of cultures. Students learn how to express the author’s point of view and if their own agrees or disagrees with the author’s.
The Math curriculum introduces students to geometry by teaching them the attributes that define a shape. They then learn how to draw or create models of them. As they progress students learn how to measure the perimeter of an object as well as find the capacity. In high school, the students learn more difficult math based on shapes in classes in geometry and trigonometry. When they graduate the students have the confidence in their problem-solving skills to face the world.

Chalk Talk: How to Help a Child Prepare for First Grade Math
Children go from object-based math in kindergarten to math using pencil and paper in first. To make this transition smoothly there are a few things that can be done at home. First, to make sure that a child is fluent in counting forward and backward to one hundred, place cereal, candy or building block pieces in front of them and ask them to count. Then group the objects in sets of twos or five and ask them to try again in these increments. Next, look through a catalog with a child and ask them to read numbers as you point to them. To help them become used to fractions, while cooking from a recipe, ask them to read a fraction and then help to understand the meaning of the fraction. For example, ¼ cup means that it would take four of this measuring cup to make a cup. When the child starts first grade, if they become overwhelmed, help them to take a step back from the paper and pencil and help them relate the math to real-life.
