About Our District-Adopted Resources

Bridges in Mathematics

Bridges in Mathematics is a comprehensive PK–5 curriculum that equips teachers to fully address state standards in a rigorous, engaging, and accessible manner. Students gain a deep understanding of concepts, proficiency with key skills, and the ability to solve complex problems. The curriculum is composed of three distinct but integrated components: Problems & Investigations, Work Places and Number Corner.

College Preparatory Math (CPM)

CPM envisions a world where mathematics is viewed as intriguing and useful, and is appreciated by all; where powerful mathematical thinking is an essential, universal, and desirable trait; and where people are empowered by mathematical problem solving and reasoning to solve the world’s problems. CPM is used in grades 6 through 8.

Lucy Calkins Units of Study

**Based on the 5-year curriculum review cycle established by the district, Oak Grove is exploring updated research-based literacy resources for the 23-24 school year**

The Reading and Writing Project’s approach to instruction recognizes that “one size fits all” does not match the realities of the classrooms and schools in which they work. When you walk into a workshop classroom at any given moment, you’ll see instruction that is designed to:

  • help teachers address each child’s individual learning,
  • explicitly teach strategies students will use not only the day they are taught, but whenever they need them,
  • support small-group work and conferring, with multiple opportunities for personalizing instruction,
  • tap into the power of a learning community as a way to bring all learners along,
  • build choice and assessment-based learning into the very design of the curriculum,
  • help students work with engagement so that teachers are able to coach individuals and lead small groups.

The routines and structures of reading and writing workshop are kept simple and predictable so that the teacher can focus on the complex work of teaching in a responsive manner to accelerate achievement for all learners.  The Units of Study are used in all K-2 classrooms, with some units used in grades 4-8 also. The Units of Study in Writing include: Opinion/Argument, Information, and Narrative writing. For reading, grades K–2 include one foundational unit and three other units to address reading fiction and informational texts. Grades 3–5 each include two units in reading fiction and two in reading informational texts. For more information, visit the link below.


Reading Horizons Discovery

Reading Horizons Discovery was adopted in 2017. With the release of Sound City, a phonological awareness program that works alongside the Core 4 program, all K-2 teachers were retrained during the summer of 2022. The lower strands of Dr. Scarborough’s reading rope indicate the critical foundational skills children need to become fluent readers. Fluent reading is a critical prerequisite to language comprehension. Reading Horizons explicitly teaches students phonological awareness, decoding and encoding, and sight recognition in order to build the skills necessary to become a fluent reader.
