Northbridge District and Curriculum
Northbridge Public Schools are comprised of four schools—a primary school with grades PK-1, an elementary school with grades 2-4, a middle school, and a high school. The district’s mission is to provide students with a rigorous curriculum that promotes critical and creative thinking as well as allows students to reach their academic potential. It is also committed to the whole child and his/her intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Northbridge Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards.
We currently cover the following Northbridge-area school district: Northbridge Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westport District Curriculum
With the more rigorous Common Core curriculum, there have been several major shifts in the way math is taught. There are deep focus areas; in the primary grades, it is on whole numbers (including adding and subtracting them and understanding the quantities they measure), while grades 3-5 focus on multiplication, division, and fractions. There is also more coherence, with concepts being taught horizontally across grade level as well as vertically from each grade to the next. In grades 2-4, mathematical fluency, including accuracy and automaticity, is important.
By the end of second grade, students should have memorized the sums of all two, one-digit numbers. Third graders need to be able to fluently add and subtract all numbers within 1,000 using appropriate strategies and properties as well as have committed to memory all the products of two, one-digit numbers (basic multiplication facts). Students must also understand when to apply certain mathematical concepts and strategies.

Chalk Talk: Halloween Ideas for the Classroom
Holidays can be educational, too! A great way to help students enjoy poetry is to incorporate a Halloween theme. For example, they can create an acrostic poem out of any Halloween-related word they choose, with each word or phrase stemming off the letters also having to do with the spooky holiday. In math, teachers can incorporate candy corn, pumpkins, bats, etc. into word problems or bring items in so that young students can count and work with them. In social studies, students can learn about the history of Halloween, how the holiday is celebrated in different countries, and the origins of the pumpkin. In fact, entire educational themes can be built around pumpkins, and perhaps the class can celebrate with foods or treats containing pumpkin. In science, students can "dissect" pumpkins. Another idea is for students to have debates on topics such as believing black cats are really unlucky, or whether or not they believe in ghosts. These debates can be turned into persuasive written pieces.
