Silver Springs District and Curriculum
Lyon County School District has a district improvement team that works to ensure that grade level curriculum aligns with Nevada State curriculum standards in order to ensure curriculum consistency across the school district. Starting in the 2009-2010 school year, the state and the school district adopted the National Common Core Standards for English/Language Arts and Mathematics. The English/Language Arts curriculum is designed to prepare students in reading and writing skills, which are critical for academic success in all core classes. The Math curriculum develops problem-solving skills that prepare students for any type of advanced math.
We currently cover the following Silver Springs-area school district: Lyon County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Silver Springs District Curriculum
Students cannot be successful without good reading skills and the writing skills that will help them succeed. Students start out in Kindergarten by learning letter recognition and sounds, as well as learning to write letters and to write their name. They learn to retell the stories and answer questions about the stories. With each following grade, the curriculum adds new skills to those learned in the previous grade. Fourth graders are beginning to write reports and create graphic organizers to group their thoughts.
The Mathematics curriculum requires students to learn numbers and operations in base ten by counting objects and by working with numbers 11-19. Students also learn measurement and data skills by starting out with counting objects and putting them into different categories, such as matching shapes, colors or size. At higher grade levels students learn to measure objects, describing the measurements and conducting a comparison with objects of different sizes.

Chalk Talk: Provide Hands-On Learning Activities for Your Preschooler
When you provide your preschooler with hands-on activities, you are helping them to develop fine motor skills. Remember that a child’s education goes hand-in-hand with developing motor skills, so please make sure that you do not just concentrate on teaching letters and numbers, etc. You can spray some shaving cream on the wall during bath time (anytime, really) and let your child write in the shaving cream with his finger. Another good activity is to give your child a pair of tweezers and small pom-poms that are used in arts and crafts. Let him use the tweezers to pick up the pom-poms one at a time. You can also let your child use chopsticks to pick up kernels or corn or popcorn. Help your child use scissors (always safety scissors and under your supervision), as the use of scissors develops fine motor skills and helps them to build strength in their hands.
