Tualatin District and Curriculum
The Tigard-Tualatin School District reaches students at the level they are at and then help them to soar. This is done through using the Core Curriculum State Standards as well as the experience and creativity of the educational staff. The goal of creating students with good citizenship and decision-making qualities who are prepared for entry into the workforce or higher learning is guided through the curriculum and its focus on academics, community service, and character development.
We currently cover the following Tualatin-area school district: Tigard-Tualatin School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tualatin District Curriculum
Children at Tigard-Tualatin School District begin to learn about science through unit studies. In kindergarten students learn about the changes in caterpillars by watching them change in their classroom. Speakers also help students learn about topics such as trees. When studying weather, students create their own anemometers and then watch them work outside. When they reach high school, these students have had their curiosity about topics raised, so they are more than ready to face more in-depth learning.
Social Studies is also taught through activities and units. In elementary school, one class creates a competition to see which team can successfully take their team across the ocean, as Pilgrims, and then create their own community. The students also travel to Philip Foster Farm to see the home of one of Oregon’s earliest pioneers. Students also participate in a timeline project where they research and present an event from Oregon’s history.

Chalk Talk: Third Grade Thought Processes
Each child is a little different, yet there is so much that is the same. In the third grade, most students think in certain ways. Third graders understand many parts of a problem, while they are in the midst of solving it. They also can relate symbols to objects, so if shown an addition sign, they know to add two numbers together. They are also logical but they still can come up with wild conclusions. Even though these students are very creative and imaginative, they are understandable. Little by little, these students become a little bit less egocentric. They know that other people’s views may differ from their own. At times they may still want to be the center of the universe but they will leave this stage soon. As these children grow and change, it is interesting to see how they grow and mature.
