Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Umatilla District Curriculum
In elementary school, students gain decoding skills and build up their reading speed (fluency) in ELA. With that knowledge, they frequently retell stories they read and hear. Teachers check their comprehension of what they read by having them answer questions that ask What, When, Where, How, Why, and Who. Students practice writing stories using proper grammar at the beginning of sentences, the proper end punctuation marks, and with a clear main idea. They later learn how to organize main ideas and supporting details in analytic writing.
In elementary math, skills include the review of multiplication and division facts. Students learn what a decimal is and the relationship between them, fractions, and whole numbers. Students also learn how to find the area of shapes. Later, students analyze how fractions are divided, learn to explain fractions that contain variables and recognize that variability explains how different sets of data have the same mean and median.

Chalk Talk: Writing Workshops for Students
A common approach to teaching writing is by using the workshop model. There are many reasons for this approach, not least the process-oriented approach to writing that students are presented with. They learn how to take an idea and turn it into a full length essay or story within a class publication. The publishing of students’ writing gives them a greater motivation to perfect their work, as they know their friends, family, and maybe even the world will be reading it. It also gives them a sense of accomplishment and the ability to reflect on their past pieces. Lastly, students often use authors’ writing styles as inspirations for their own writing. How great would it be for children to use themselves as such inspiration by referring to previous stories they have written?
