Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sanford District Curriculum
The Language Arts/Literacy program is an especially critical aspect of your child’s education because literacy skills are essential for academic success in all other core disciplines. Students learn basic literacy skills in kindergarten, such as letter recognition and sounds, along with listening and comprehension skills. As students progress through the grades they learn new and more complicated skills enabling them to analyze and evaluate literary and informative text.
Kindergarten students learn basic math skills by learning number recognition and counting with objects. Objects are used for addition and subtraction skills and shaped objects are used to teach children to sort and group shapes into groups of matching shapes. These activities form a foundation for the higher math skills of algebra and g geometry and will be built upon with each following grade. This is called the building blocks, or staircase method of teaching. STEM skills will give students a great foundation for succeeding in college and employment.

Chalk Talk: How to Prepare Your Child for Middle School Tutoring
The transition from elementary school to middle school can be frightening for a child. There are ways that you, as a parent, can help make the transition easier for your child. Start preparing your child at the beginning of the fourth or fifth grade year by talking about middle school. The thing is most frightening about a transition like this is fear of the unknown. Your child will be in an environment where s/he will have to change classes, having a different teacher for each subject. Schedule a time with the middle school to take your child so that s/he can see what it is like. Introduce him/her to teachers and ask questions about what will be expected and what kinds of clubs or sports in which s/he can be involved. Most schools have a special day that elementary school students can spend the day at the middle school. The key to making the transition easier is to stay informed and visit the school so that your child can get a feel for the school environment. Keep discussions open and listen to your child's feelings. Your child needs to know that you understand and that you really care about what s/he has to say. That will make it better for both of you.
