Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yorkton District Curriculum
The district's Deputy Director and Superintendents of Education work with all of the district’s coaches for digital learning, distributed learning, literacy, math, and English as an Additional Language in the areas of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. The district has developed a 5-Year Professional Development Continuum, which demonstrates how the initiatives being done for students complement and connect to one another.
Beginning in year three of the five-year continuum, the plan is divided into modules, showing the work being done in the areas of Response to Intervention (RTI), curriculum, assessment, instruction, and leadership and collaboration. The curriculum will be renewed using an outcomes-based approach in order to reflect how student progress and feedback is being reported much more specifically, catering to each student as an individual. The Good Spirit School Division, like all districts in the province, use the Saskatchewan Curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Short vs. Long OO Sound
Besides the traditional short and long sounds made by the vowels A, E, I, O, and U, the variant vowel pattern “oo” makes its own short and long sounds. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut pattern that determines which words with “oo” will have a short vowel sound and which has a long vowel. For example, the words wood and mood both have “ood,” but if you pronounce these words, you will realize that that the “oo” sounds differ in each one. The word wood makes a short vowel sound. Other words that contains a short “oo” are book, foot, and good. In contrast, words such as mood, bloom, scoop, and cool have a long “oo” sound. Additionally, the “u” in certain words makes neither a short or long ‘U’ sound but a short “oo” sound; examples include bush and put. Certain words with “ou”—as in should—make this sound as well.
