Richfield District and Curriculum
Richfield Public Schools’ curriculum relies on the state standards to guide direction instruction, while simultaneously using complex tasks and assignments to meet the skills and strategies needed for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The emphasis in both content areas is for students to be successful in college and in the professional workplace of today. Each strategy to learn a given concept and idea in ELA and Math is for the purposes of solving complex tasks that will help students master key ideas and concepts at a faster rate. Problem solving and higher level thinking are also fostered, with a decided emphasis on the various content areas.
We currently cover the following Richfield-area school district: Richfield Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richfield District Curriculum
By Kindergarten, students are expected to share opinions, inform and explain, entertain through narratives and other creative text. They will be able to read from left-to-right, top-to-bottom, and page by page; know and use high-frequency words and letter sounds; read reader-emergent texts with purpose and understanding; and the ability to read books with pictures that support understanding, use sentence patterns, and possess common and frequently used words. Even in kindergarten, students are introduced to the beginning of pattern recognition.
A goal of the math curriculum is to prepare students for algebra, and successful completion of pre-algebra by 8th grade. Spatial reasoning skills are developed for the purposes of geometry and, by the end of high school classes in statistics and probability that meet the state standards for data analysis and probability. The 2015 graduating class faces the Algebra completion requirement by 8th grade, and the completion of an Algebra II credit or its equivalent.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of the Base 10 Blocks
Starting in Kindergarten and the later grades, the importance of Base Ten Blocks cannot be understated. A child’s understanding of the Base 10 is most suited for the use of the manipulatives. The broad framework of number size, number relations, flexibly decomposing and reconfiguring numbers, and thinking multiplicatively happens in the teaching of Base 10. By taking advantage of the ease of mathematical manipulatives, concepts such as addition, subtraction, number sense, place value, and counting are introduced, and students engage with these concepts by using the manipulatives. Using the three-dimensional blocks come at an important time in a student’s academic life when they’re in elementary school. Teachers can successfully introduce students to concepts by the practice of modeling, which is done through the use of the Base 10 Blocks. Since cognitive development begins in Kindergarten and the earliest grades, the use of the blocks comes at a time when they’re most receptive and capable of grasping basic mathematical concepts.
