Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orangetown District Curriculum
The district’s standards are aligned to the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. The revised standards provide more concrete learning, focus on what students use in life and help them prepare for success in college or the workforce. The English Language Arts standards include the knowledge and proficiency needed in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening and language.
The Common Core Math Standards incorporate two kinds of standards: how students are able to apply and use math principles (content) and what students know about math (practice). These two instructional strategies are linked together to promote skill mastery. Students in the early grades build a strong foundation in understanding whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals. These skills and concepts become more complex at each grade level and help prepare students for algebra and geometry in the higher grades.

- Science Learning - Third graders in Mrs. Eckert’s class at Tappan Zee Elementary were recently visited by Amy Sabin of the Community Outreach Department of United Water. Her visit was part of their science unit on the water cycle. The visit included interactive and engaging activities. First, Ms. Sabin read students a book about the water cycle. Then the class was separated into groups of two or three students and given a pipe cleaner. Stations were set up around the classroom. Each station had a container filled with a specific color bead and a picture that represented different parts of the water cycle, such as a plant, earth, glacier or ocean. At each station was a cube which each student rolled that directed them to the next station in their water cycle. At the end of the activity a group discussion helped the children realize they each had created their own unique water cycle. To create a lasting memory of this wonderful learning experience, students then twisted their pipe cleaner into a bracelet
Chalk Talk: Top Internet Safety Tips for Parents
Today’s world is filled with social media and numerous sources of technology. Often, kids are more familiar with all the “apps” than adults. That is why it is important for every adult to educate themselves about the latest on-line threats such as cyberbullying so that you may talk to your child about being a responsible digital citizen. This conversation should start as soon as your child begins using the internet. Use age-appropriate filtering, blocking and monitoring software on all laptops, desktops, wireless phones and video games used by your child. Be aware of who your child is talking to on-line. Know the websites your child is visiting and limit the time they spend on-line. Explain to your child that no personal information such as their name, address, birthdate, school etc. should be given out when they are on-line, and they should never post information about their location. Tell your child never to meet someone they met on-line in person and should let you know immediately if someone on-line asks to meet them. Following these tips, will help keep your child safe when using the internet.
