Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainfield Township District Curriculum
A strong understanding of the basic reading skills and strategies are the emphasis for elementary schools. Students are first taught that letters have sounds, those sounds can be combined to make words, and those words have meaning. The basic parts of a story are then broken down into several pieces and strategies for understanding the plot are taught. Teachers focus on such skills as recognizing an author’s purpose, compare and contrast, making inferences, and summarizing.
Mathematics also play a critical role in the curriculum for elementary students. This foundation is based on a strong theory of numbers that starts early with simple counting and value standards. As students begin to understand the concepts introduced in these early grades, they start to apply the knowledge in meaningful ways. Counting money and objects are an important activity for students in the Kindergarten through 2nd grades while upper elementary students learn about measurement and geometry.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Taking a Standardized Test
Standardized testing has become the norm for school districts across the country to show student progress. These tests are comprehensive and usually take the form of multiple choice questions. While standardized tests can make students quite nervous, here are some test-taking tips to help prepare for the big day. First, come prepared for the test having gotten a good night’s sleep and eaten a protein rich breakfast. Next, use your time wisely by answering the questions you know first and going back to more difficult questions after.

Finally, and most importantly, always double check your work to make sure you have answered each question and filled in the test correctly. Whether it’s a state test or a college entrance exam, these tried and true tips can make for a successful test-taking experience.
