ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS AND READING K-5 Curriculum Overview

3
Strategic and developmentally appropriate focus on five components of reading: PHONEMIC AWARENESS PHONICS FLUENCY VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT COMPREHENSION KINDERGARTEN ELAR

4
Our classrooms are collaborative, creative, and literacy-rich. The walls are full of student work and anchor charts that have been co-authored by teacher and students. Students are engaged in meaningful activities and have many opportunities to participate in dialogue. KINDERGARTEN ELAR

MATHEMATICS INSTRUCTION IN EAGLE MOUNTAIN–SAGINAW ISD The “Why” Behind What We Do

9
Process Standards The student uses mathematical processes to acquire and demonstrate mathematical understanding. The student is expected to: (A) apply mathematics to problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace; (B) use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution; (C) select tools, including real objects, manipulatives, paper and pencil, and technology as appropriate, and techniques, including mental math, estimation, and number sense as appropriate, to solve problems; (D) communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate; (E) create and use representations to organize, record, and communicate mathematical ideas; (F) analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas; and (G) display, explain, and justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communication. KINDERGARTEN MATHEMATICS

10
The Last 4 Statements… (D) communicate mathematical ideas, reasoning, and their implications using multiple representations, including symbols, diagrams, graphs, and language as appropriate; (E)use mathematical relationships to generate solution and make connections and predictions. (F) analyze mathematical relationships to connect and communicate mathematical ideas. (G) display, explain, or justify mathematical ideas and arguments using precise mathematical language in written or oral communications. KINDERGARTEN MATHEMATICS

11
Focal Points for Kindergarten Students count, represent and compare quantities and collections fluently to at least 20 Students develop meaning of addition and subtraction and explain strategies for solving problems involving those operations Students identify and use attributes and components of 2D and 3D shapes KINDERGARTEN MATHEMATICS

12
Support students to make sense of mathematics and learn that they can be mathematical thinkers. Focus on computational fluency with whole numbers. Emphasize reasoning about mathematical ideas. Engage all learners in understanding mathematics Guiding Principles KINDERGARTEN MATHEMATICS

13
SOCIAL STUDIES KINDERGARTEN

14
Throughout social studies in Kindergarten-Grade 12, students build a foundation in history; geography; economics; government; citizenship; culture; science, technology, and society; and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation. 1 ST GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES

15
In Kindergarten, the study of the self, home, family, and classroom establishes the foundation for responsible citizenship in society. KINDERGARTEN SOCIAL STUDIES

16
Kindergarteners receive instruction through units that start to build a foundation in history; geography; economics; government; citizenship; culture; science, technology, and society; and social studies skills: Unit 1 – Rules and Routines Unit 2 – Good Citizens Unit 3 – Our Government Unit 4 – Going to Work Unit 5 – Basic Needs Unit 6 – Families Unit 7 – Celebrations Unit 8 – Important People and Events Unit 9 – Technology Unit 10 – Our History Unit 11 – Places on the Earth Unit 12 – The Earth and Us Unit 13 – Maps of the Earth Unit 14 – Decisions Unit 15 – Solving Problems Unit 16 – Next Year KINDERGARTEN SOCIAL STUDIES

ELEMENTARY SCIENCE: INQUIRY AND NOTEBOOKS

18
What is scientific inquiry? Science inquiry is the active construction of ideas and the forming of connections. Science inquiry engages students in the investigative nature of science. Science inquiry involves activities and skills in an active search for understanding. Science inquiry transforms learning from watching and listening to doing. Science inquiry allows students to take an active role in understanding their science learning. KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE

19
What are the essential features of a science classroom? Learners are engaged by scientifically oriented questions. Learners give priority to evidence, which allows them to develop and evaluate explanations that address scientifically oriented questions. Learners formulate and evaluate explanations from evidence to address scientifically oriented questions. Learners communicate and justify their proposed explanations. KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE

20
What is the student’s role? Ask a question about objects, organisms and events in the world around them. Plan and conduct a simple investigation. Employ simple equipment and tools to gather data and extend the senses. Use data to construct a reasonable explanation. Communicate investigations and explanations. KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE

21
Science Notebooks in every classroom Integrates science and language arts skills Helps students develop cognitive knowledge of science content and processes Enhances writing skills Serves as an assessment tool to gather information on students’ thinking KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE
