Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orillia District Curriculum
Student learning in Orillia is based on the design of the Ontario Curriculum. This is an instructional tool that organizes the subjects into their areas of skills and knowledge. These areas make up the units of study that students focus on through the year. The curriculum also provides the concepts and thinking skill that students will develop while learning the subject matter. For instance, the math curriculum lays out the skills of each mathematical sub-topic while connecting them to higher order skills like reasoning and problem-solving.
Similarly, the English curriculum describes the elements of reading and writing that will help students become analytic and critical thinkers who are able to communicate in written form. The reading standards involve text complexity, the use of both fiction and informational texts, ways in which students demonstrate strong achievement of reading skills, how students use reading strategies, and how students’ comprehension responses show appropriate achievement.

Chalk Talk: The Short ‘A’ Sound
The short ‘A’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as cat, bag, and tan contain this sound. These words all follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, which usually contain short vowels. When words contain double S’s or F’s, such as pass and staff, the ‘A’ is usually short; however, words with double L’s—even when they have an ‘A’ in the middle—actually make a short ‘O’ sound (i.e.: ball and fall). In contrast, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end in ‘E,” generally have a long ‘A’ sound (e.g.: bake and same). Some words that follow a CVCC pattern, such as lamp and mask, consist of a short ‘A,’ but this is not a rule.
