West Linn District and Curriculum
The West Linn–Wilsonville School District uses the Core Curriculum State Standards for Math and Language Arts, along with the experience of their educators, to help students have a successful life as a student. These standards give students what they need to be ready for college or their career goals, and support learning in other subjects. There is a strong foundation in core academics and an eye to connecting that knowledge to students’ individual goals.
We currently cover the following West Linn-area school district: West Linn-Wilsonville School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Linn District Curriculum
Reading takes a front seat in educational terms for the students; they learn early that there may be different versions of a story. After one class reads the different versions, they make the story their own by creating a play on the basic story and performing it. Students also have had a professional storyteller come into the classroom to teach them how to use their voice, gestures, and facial expressions to make the stories come to life.
Educators at West Linn–Wilsonville Schools approach science with a hands-on approach. From the growing of Brassica plants, grass, onions and carrots in kindergarten to lab experiences in biology and chemistry, students experience science up close and with all senses in use. In second grade, the students learn about insects by creating trading cards about them, and then they go on a field trip to see many of these insects up close. They also learn how to use the internet to research topics, including how to tell if a website is reputable.

Chalk Talk: Learning with Technology
Children are exposed to technology practically from the time they are born. With parental guidance, these children also can have positive educational experiences with it. Regardless of what the program may be about, use the commercial time to ask the child questions about the program. Questions could include asking about the main character and why the child thinks decisions were made the way that they were. Even watching a DVD over and over is beneficial. After each watching, the parent can ask what the show was about and see if the child’s version changes over time. If a child is using an ap wrong repeatedly, ask why. Perhaps they like what happens when they push the wrong button. With parent interaction, children can have fun with technology while having a learning experience.
