Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McCook District Curriculum
From primary to secondary school, Mathematics is a key element in the schooling of each student. Standards begin at the number system, with the students communicating and showing a variety of ways to solve problems, reason, and make real-world connections. Applying mathematical concepts across all disciplines is required. Counting, reading, and writing numbers from 0-20, and putting them in ordinal sequence, and the beginning of adding numbers and subtracting numbers is where it all begins in the primary grades.
Focusing on the Reading standards of learning, as students must be literate to succeed in all subject areas, the standards focus on the development of phonological awareness by reading, writing, and speaking. Speech patterns and rhyming are explored, and the blending of the individual phonemes of words, single and multi-syllabic, is mastered. Students are able to use these skills to decode broader meanings within texts and develop both analytic and interpretative thinking abilities.

Chalk Talk: What is Phonological Awareness?
Each word is made up of individual sounds, or phonemes. When students enter school for the first time, they explore the sounds of the words. A one-syllable word is stretched out and the individual sounds are listened to by the students. To fluent readers, this is very simple, but to a very young child learning to read and write, this can be difficult. Listening for the sounds in isolation has to be taught by the teacher in order for the children to begin reading and spelling words. Phonological awareness is a very large part of kindergarten and first grade, and once it is mastered, the students are on their way to being great readers and writers!
