Westampton District and Curriculum
The curriculum of Westampton Township Public Schools utilizes both New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and Common Core State Standards as guides to design instruction and learning. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards are revised every five years to provide each district with clear and specific goals and benchmarks for student achievement in nine core areas: science, social studies, health and physical education, language arts, technology, visual and performing arts, world languages, and mathematics. Preschool Teaching and Learning Standards are also covered under New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westampton District Curriculum
K-5 Core Curriculum is largely influenced by the philosophy of Understanding By Design. Under this system of curriculum planning, the principles of backwards design allow for teachers to build lessons on a strong foundation of student achievement. Unit and lesson objectives are tied to problem-solving, hands-on projects that allow students a variety of options to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. This leads to a program that is rigorous, meaningful, differentiated, and culturally responsive.
The Mathematics curriculum of Westhampton was designed to help students explore mathematical concepts with real-world applications. Students are taught the basic, fundamental skills and challenged to apply those skills to a range of complex tasks. In the 21st Century, students must be apply to think on their feet and understand how mathematics concepts and processes work and come up with creative applications for those concepts. Students must also be able to reach these goals in a collaborative environment.

Chalk Talk: Building a Home Library
Children of all ages benefit from having a place in the home to find good reading materials at a moment’s notice. Create a functional book-nook in your own home by following these few short tips. First, aim for 30 or more titles. A variety of fiction and non-fiction materials and giving your child a few options will teach them that reading is all about balance. Next, about half of these books should be “easy-to-read” material, which means each page has 5-10 new vocabulary words but no more. The other half should be books to challenge their reading level, with about 15-20 new words on a page. Lastly, don’t forget the audio. Audiobooks are a great home library addition, as they build listening skills and can reinforce new word acquisition for your audio learners. They’re also quite handy to carry on a long car ride or vacation.
