Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Natchez District Curriculum
Teachers in the Language Arts program at Natchez Public School use ‘Starfalls’ to help teach phonetic reading. By utilizing this program the children use imagination and enthusiasm to lead their skills. This program also lets the children direct their instruction, while it also allows the teacher to give assistance to students who struggle. The early student is exposed to fables, myths folktales, comics and plays. When the students enter middle school they use Accelerated Reading to track progress when reading.
Mathematics builds on skills that have been learned the previous year by using ‘A Plus Math.’ This curriculum helps back p learning by using games, flashcards and puzzles to help children have fun while learning. When the students enter middle school, they are allowed to discover independence while using Accelerated Math.

Chalk Talk: Raising an Independent Thinker
Even though parent do like the fact that their children need them, it is necessary for the child to become an independent thinker. There are some things that parents can do to help this process along. Ask the child to describe, in detail, items, like how they feel when they jump, or what they think of when they see the color yellow. This helps build listening skills, as well as communication skills. Another way to help is to let them solve the next dilemma they face with minimum input. This encourages them to think for themselves. Last, instead of reading a story to the child at bedtime, create a story where the parent and child take turns telling a story a few sentences at a time. Just by following these few ideas, the child will become more independent.
