Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lyndon District Curriculum
The K-8 classes focus on building strong skills across the core subjects. In the fourth grade, teachers use a curriculum called Investigations in Number, Space, and Data for mathematics. A main skill that is learned on this level is division. The reading and writing curriculum is workshop-style, with students having daily short lessons on subjects of reading comprehension strategies or good writing practices that they then apply in independent reading and responses.
In the middle school grades, students are exposed to geography and map-reading skills as they follow the course of United States history from the days of colonization to the Civil War. Students read texts and even create posters to demonstrate learning of these concepts.The English curriculum corresponds and supports the social studies curriculum by teaching parts of speech and writing skills that align with readings from the colonial period and historical fiction.

Chalk Talk: Word Processing- An Essential Skill
The “hunt and peck” strategy may work well for chickens looking for tasty insects, but when applied to a computer keyboard, it certainly makes writing a paragraph a slow and painful process. A simple word-processing class can make a huge difference and save you hundreds of minutes over the course of your career and educational lifespan. In a word-processing class, you will learn to use “home keys” as a base of operations that makes typing a much speedier process. With practice, you will learn to type the desired letters automatically without looking down at the keyboard. You can also learn how to use programs that will help you format your document and check for errors in spelling and grammar. If your school does not offer classes in word processing, you can try a community college or search for an online class. Taking a typing class will be a decision that you will not regret, and soon you will be typing faster than you ever imagined!
