Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mena District Curriculum
Mena teachers not only implement the Common Core Standards but also believe that the standards can help students to reach their highest potential. Each teacher in the district has an individual webpage on which he/she may share lesson plans, including learning objectives, for parents to view. For example, on March 31st, kindergarten students were learning how to decode C-V-C (consonant-vowel-consonant) words with a short e in them. The teacher included the specific Common Core Standards that this objective connected to, which helps parents to see and understand the link between the standards and their children’s learning.
Some of the teachers also provide an overview of what students will be learning throughout the entire year. For instance, a high school math teacher describes that in Pre-AP Algebra 2, students will expand their learning of various functions, learn how to solve quadratic equations, and gain an understanding of why math is important in their everyday lives.

Chalk Talk: Phonics and Phonemic Awareness
There are five critical areas of reading that are necessary in students becoming high-level readers: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Phonemic awareness is the ability for students to hear and identify sounds in words; phonemes refer to the individual sounds in words. Student with good early phonemic awareness skills may have an easier time learning to read. Parents and teachers can play many games with young children to help them improve their phonemic awareness. Phonics instruction helps students understand the relationships between sounds and words, including that there are some general rules and some irregular relationships. Once students learn and understand these relationships, they can begin to read and spell words. Phonemic awareness and phonics are typically focused on in the early, primary grades, as they are the building blocks to students decoding, or sounding out, words.
