Riverdale District and Curriculum
Students of Riverdale attend Clayton County Public Schools. Teaching and learning follow Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS). At every grade level, students are taught what they need to know at each grade level and prepared for the next grade and in their college bound goals. Students learn critical thinking and decision making in making connections between concepts and real-world application.
We currently cover the following Riverdale-area school district: Clayton County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Riverdale District Curriculum
CCGPS is heavily found in Mathematics and English Language Arts. The literacy standards are also integrated in Science, Social Studies and Technical Education (at the high school level). Mathematics learning moves from the foundational concepts of computation, measurement and spatial recognition during the elementary grades. Problem solving, reasoning and application skills are introduced in these grades then developed even more during the middle and high school grades.
English Language Arts learning includes reading, speaking, listening and use of language across all grades. Informational themes and short narratives are used as literary texts and within writing development through the elementary grades, giving students time and opportunities to demonstrate comprehension and language development.
Middle school and high school students emphasize comprehension and analysis of texts and identification of story elements in progressively complex literature.

Chalk Talk: Becoming a Better Speller
It tends to be all memorization. Some students do well with that type of learning, other students struggle. The elementary and early middle grades spend time on vocabulary; more time in the early grades is spent on spelling. Not only does spelling correctly mean “sounding out the word” but also writing it on paper correctly AND writing the letter correctly so the word can be read clearly. This is a lot for students to process early in their learning. As students progress through grades, the process becomes more automatic however “sounding out the word” and putting that same sound on paper can be a challenge. It just involves practice and more practice. Then memorization of spelling words. Again, practice and more practice. Although memorizing spelling words can be daunting to children, parents can help to make it fun. Create a song, dance, or rhythmic action that builds the letters together in a way your child can remember it. By doing so, spelling, spelling words and memorization overall won’t be so dreadful to your student.
