Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amarillo District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum in Amarillo begins by teaching students how to read stories. This is done using a variety of sources, from books to eBooks and more. Beginning in early elementary, students see how reading can assist them in other subject areas as well. In fifth grade, students build on these reading skills even more as they begin to identify authors, characters, setting and theme in a non-fiction book. About this time students also learn how to visualize the text they are reading into pictures in their minds.
Mathematics also plays a part in various subjects of study. Amarillo Schools start by showing students that objects can use numbers to represent them when they are counting. They also learn about place values of numbers so they can read, write, compare and order numbers. When they have mastered these number skills they are ready to learn how to place numbers in equations to solve problems in science, social studies or even reading.

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: Fifth-Grade Science
In fifth grade, the science curriculum tends to become more serious. Up until this time students my have carried on experiments without worrying very much about the outcome. In fifth grade, students begin to measure, count, predict and record steps of an experiment. They also are able to give a sensible hypothesis and are able to defend their conclusions with evidence. Along with these scientific milestones, they learn to identify and explain structure and they are learn details about the solar system. Even though, a student may not go on to a career in science, the attention to detail will assist them in most areas of their lives.
