Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Moapa Valley District Curriculum
The Mathematics Curriculum begins with Kindergarten students, teaching them base ten numbers. Students learn to recognize written numbers and they learn counting by using different objects. They learn basic Algebra skills by adding and subtracting objects. They also learn basic Geometry by recognizing and sorting different shapes. As with other subjects, skills are gradually increased as students move through the grades, with each grade’s curriculum building new skills each year.
In Literacy/Language Arts, students learn to retell stories and associate pictures with a story the teacher has read. They also learn the sounds of letters and begin with the basics of reading by learning to sound out letters and syllables. As students’ progress through grades until the 12th grade, the curriculum adds new and more complex skills that are built on skills learned in the previous grades. As students’ progress, they also learn more complex critical thinking skills. In high school, students write papers, poetry and then write book reviews.

Chalk Talk: How Can I Improve My Child’s Reading Skills?
When it comes to education, reading is the most important skill your child can have. Reading is a skill that is necessary in every class your child will take. The first thing you can do to improve your child’s reading skills is to read out loud to him or her. Start reading to your child before s/he is born, because the baby can hear you. Reading out loud to your child will help increase vocabulary skills and it will help your child to develop good listening skills. Make sure you provide plenty of books for your child. It is also a good idea to create a quiet place in your home where your child can retreat for some relaxing time with a good book. Take your pre-school child to the library every week and allow him/her to check out some books with their own library card.
