Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Williamsburg District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins in kindergarten. Between kindergarten and eighth grade students are taught the basics in number sense, computation and estimation, measurement, geometry, probability, statistics, patterns, functions and algebra. A majority of the students enroll in Algebra I by the eighth grade which gives them a high school credit in the subject. These years also base their education on interactive, hands-on activities. In high school, the students are encouraged to complete one mathematics course a year.
The students, beginning in kindergarten, learn about scientific investigation and reasoning, life processes, living systems, matter, energy, force and motion, and earth and space interrelationships. The students are taught in a hands-on environment that is oriented toward their methods of learning. In the fifth grade students take part in an invention convention where they can learn using creative thinking.

Chalk Talk: What a Child Learns in Fifth Grade Language Arts
Each year in a child’s education builds on the knowledge that is learned in previous years. This continues on in the fifth grade. By the time a child finishes this school year they will have read books in a variety of genres and they will learn to use these styles in their own writing. They also begin to see the author’s viewpoint and can come to their own conclusions. When they come to words that they are unfamiliar with, students use different methods to identify them including using context clues, word structure and derivations. When writing, they will know how to revise the work by listening and heeding others. Their skills also increase in spelling and handwriting. When the student is finished with the year, help them to see how far they have come by saving previous work and letting them discover the differences.
