Winthrop District and Curriculum
Winthrop Public Schools is a relatively small school district that is comprised of three schools and almost 2,000 students. There is an elementary school with grades K-3, a middle school with grades 4-7 (which is referred to as an elementary school), and a high school. A new school that combines the middle and high schools is currently under construction. Winthrop’s Cummings Elementary School holds an annual Curriculum Night to share information and updates with regards to the curriculum with families and community members and help make parents aware of the open line of communication that exists between them and the school.
We currently cover the following Winthrop-area school district: Winthrop Public Schools.

Additionally, the school has developed curricular pages for students containing links to resources that will help students excel and demonstrate their creativity in each content area. For example, the English language arts page includes an interactive flipbook maker, a website with various graphic organizers, a note-taking tool, a poetry archive, and other resources to help students find reading materials that are interesting to them. Students are also taught a variety of styles of writing so that they are able to address different audiences.
The math page contains an animated math glossary, a Cash Out game that helps with making correct change, a snowflake maker, a virtual dice roller, a graph creator, and more.

Chalk Talk: What Do Fourth Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, fourth graders must have a strong grasp of key details in texts, being able to determine the theme of stories, poems, and plays as well as summarizing these texts by paying attention to the important details. Not only should they recognize themes, but they should see how common themes are treated in different texts. Similarly, they must determine the main idea and supporting details of nonfiction texts. Students will have to demonstrate that they understand the differences between poetry, drama, and prose and should recognize elements of each. Fourth grade students should be able to compare and contrast first-person and third-person narrations of stories. They should be at a more advanced stage at which foundational skills are mostly ingrained, but they will continue to use their knowledge of sound-letter correspondences, syllabication, and roots and affixes to read multisyllabic words both in and out of context.
