Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newcastle District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the students, through reading fiction stories, learn figurative language, such as similes, metaphors, alliteration, and personification. They read a large array of stories that include these types of figurative language and learn to identify each type through teacher lessons and examples. The students also are encouraged to discuss the meanings of the figurative language and what the phrases may symbolize.
In Mathematics, the students learn place value in the early grades. The concept of place value sets the foundation for more difficult concepts, like the multiplication and division of multiple digits. The students in grade 2 learn the meaning of ones, tens, and hundreds, and how to borrow from the larger digits to give to the smaller in order to solve addition and subtraction problems. The students are taught ones, tens, and hundreds through hands on experiences using cubes and base ten blocks, and learn through exploration with the teachers’ guidance.

This was held at the local library in support of Arts in the Schools and the Summer Reading Program. The paper towels used as the surface medium were stretched out to simulate a large wall of a cave. This was definitely a unique workshop and all of the students had a great time painting and collaborating with one another.

Chalk Talk: The Role of the Primary Reading Teacher
The reading teacher in the primary grades has a huge responsibility. This faculty member teaches the students’ how to develop and increase the reading skills of the students, whether it is letter identification in Kindergarten, or assisting students with more accurate and fluent reading in third grade. Either way, the reading teacher, for whatever level the students are on, is the facilitator and the instructor of all aspects of Language Arts. Not only does the reading instructor teach reading, but he also teaches writing, spelling, and oral language concepts. Having a well-rounded literacy program is the key to developing successful readers and writers, and the reading teacher must have the proper balance of all the components of the literacy portion of the school day.
