Science and Social Studies Materials for Review

Dear Douglas Community,

In accordance with Board Policy IIAA (Educational Materials Acquisition and Evaluation), the recommended texts for K-12 Science and 6-12 Social Studies are on display in the Douglas High School Library. They will be available for two weeks for public review and comment.

Teams of teachers have reviewed multiple resources and those being recommended for adoption have undergone a thorough evaluation process, trials, and vendor presentations. Your comments are welcome as we consider the texts that will best support the learning of our Douglas students. Forms are available for your comments.

Community Library hours are: Monday – Wednesday 3:30-5:30 PM and Thursday 3:30-7:30 PM.

Please come, review these texts, and share your feedback with us.

If you have any questions, please contact Debi Caskey, Asst. Supt. @ debi.caskey@k12.sd.us.

Literacy Tips for the Family!

K-2 Tip:
Practice Rhyming: No matter where you might be, you can pick an object (single syllable best to start with) and ask
your child to produce words that rhyme with that object.
Example: Car- far, jar, bar.

3-5 Tips:
We all know that our lives and schedules get very busy, therefore, if you are finding it difficult to read with your
child daily, here are a few suggestions:
Your child may read to a sibling, read to a stuffed animal, or read to a pet.
Tongue twisters offer children a chance to engage in word play. Word play can stimulate students’ curiosity about language
and help improve reading and vocabulary development. Below is a website with some examples of tongue twisters that you can practice reading at home with your child in order to engage in fun word learning.
