Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sidney District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum relies upon learning objectives such as the communication of the algebraic conceptions using a variety of representations to problem solve, increase reasoning abilities, and make real-world connections. The learning of relationships among numeric and linear patterns, such as in geometry, and analyzing these patterns by using graphs, tables, and data sets is also mastered within the K-12 standards of this subject.
The Reading curriculum in grades K-12 covers material which includes new vocabulary acquisition and using knowledge of the structure of words and word patterns. In Reading, the students become more familiar with root words and word origins to figure out the meanings of confusing words. The use of context clues to help discover new words within a wide variety of text is also taught to aid in the comprehension of the text. These build towards deeper analytic skills and students are able to independently evaluate various text sources.

Chalk Talk: Using Context Clues in Reading Instruction
Context clues help ensure the students understand what they are reading. Once students master the beginning sound and word syllables, they are able to begin using context clues. When a word is unknown at first, the student can think about what has been read, look at the surrounding text of the word, and look at the beginning sounds to figure out what the word says. Also, when a student does not know what a word means, instead of looking up the definition, the reader can look ahead at the text and read on. By using the future text and the past knowledge of what has been read, along with looking at any illustrations on the page, the student is able to figure out the meaning of the word.
