Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Hadley District Curriculum
Students are assessed periodically and methodically and are taught to build proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Children work in both small- and whole-group settings, engaging in activities such as guided reading, read alouds, literature discussions, and small group discussions. Educator Lucy Calkins is known for creating the engaging practice of the writer’s workshop, which allows students to write about whatever they would like to, go through the revision process, and present and publish their written work.
Beginning in kindergarten, South Hadley elementary students experience writer’s workshop daily. At Plains Elementary, three reading specialists are available to assist classroom teachers in implementing these programs and provide interventions, including Reading Recovery, to struggling students. By high school, students should have the skills to decode meaning in any genre of fiction or non-fiction and to write persuasively in a number of different styles.

- Michael Smith Middle School Turns 50 - A couple of years ago, South Hadley’s Michael Smith Middle School students and staff—along with local celebrities—celebrated the 50th anniversary of their school. Roughly 600 students watched a video—partly in color and partly in black-and-white—showing highlights of the school’s 50 years.

- Middle School Students Visit Washington, D.C. - Last year, 122 eighth graders from Michael Smith Middle School took a field trip to Washington, D.C., where four of them had the opportunity to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. A few weeks after the trip, the class received a letter from lawyer and military veteran Joe Rech who took in the experience and was pleased to see the young students’ display of patriotism; he also enclosed photos that he took.
Chalk Talk: What Do Third Graders Learn in Math?
According to the Common Core Standards in Math, the focus areas will become more challenging, as third graders will gain an understanding of multiplication and division as well as fractions. Students will use equal-sized groups, area models, and arrays to solve multiplication and division problems with whole numbers. Students will also understand the relationship between the two operations. They will use the properties of operations and mathematical strategies to calculate problems involving single-digit factors. Furthermore, students should be able to explain situations in which multiplication and division are needed or represented. By the end of their third grade year, students should have all the of their basic multiplication facts committed to memory. In terms of fractions, they will understand the fractional part in relation to the whole. They should be able to correctly place fractions on a number line. They should recognize simple equivalent fractions (i.e.: one-half is equal to two-fourths) and compare the amounts of fractions with the same denominators or numerators.
