Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alamo District Curriculum
Language Arts includes learning how to make oral presentations. Students first learn how to be at ease in front of their audience as they present essays on topics of their choice. These are generally only one to two paragraphs in length. As the students continue, they learn how to integrate the skills they learn in reading such as author’s voice and the importance of the audience when creating a presentation. In high school, the students learn how to include diction and syntax, they also include videos, like “Grease,” to learn how the use of these can help to create different feelings.
During their education in social studies, students at the Alamo schools learn about government. This begins by looking at the people that are involved in running a community, county and state. Then it continues on to the skills required to run a country and how this varies from area to area. The students learn about democracies, empires and other forms of government. They also learn the importance of individuals in running a government.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Social Development in First Grade
First grade is the time when students begin to learn how to be social individuals. These children believe that everyone sees things the way they do. This makes it difficult when others disagree with them. This can be eased by exposing them to many different people. Even with this trait, the first-grade student will mimic their friends as a way to be accepted by them. At times this can lead to improper behavior, so parents need to pay attention to the friends their child play with. Children at this age also tend to play with other children of their same gender. However, girls’ friendships may shift from day to day. Parents should not worry if the name of the best friend changes at this age. With these generalizations in mind, parents can help children become successful with their social development.
