Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rotterdam District Curriculum
The Rotterdam English Language Arts curriculum is one that encourages students to develop not only reading skills, but to also develop writing, speaking, listening, and language skills that can be applied to other subject areas. The writing portion of the curriculum emphasizes many skills including writing for different audiences and purposes, and the development of process-oriented skills that help students learn how to craft a piece of writing. The curriculum includes requirements for literacy in social studies, science, and technology.
The Rotterdam math curriculum is one that develops students’ understanding of core mathematics concepts from the earliest grades. Emphasis is placed on the skills of algebra, geometry, and data analysis so that students are proficient with a range of problem-solving techniques. The development of mathematical literacy through word problems and communication of mathematical thought are goals of the curriculum. As students progress from grade-to-grade they further refine and develop their knowledge of these procedures and concepts and learn to apply that knowledge to problems inside and outside classrooms.

Chalk Talk: What Parents Can Take from the Pre-K Experience
Pre-K can be a challenging time for children. For many, pre-K marks the first time they encounter clear expectations about their behavior and development of knowledge. This can be troublesome for children who have a hard time adjusting to new expectations, new people, and new schedules. To smooth this transition, parents should discuss the changes with children before they happen. Let children know what they will be expected to know and how they will be expected to act. Sending a child into a classroom with this information can help prevent the problems that come along with unexpected changes. Once a child is used to the pre-K routine, listen closely to the types of experiences they talk about each day and what impacts them as they learn. You will be able to use this information for years to come as you may see that your child is effected significantly by their peers, or that a certain part of the learning process is frustrating, or that they are developing a specific set of interests.
