Augusta District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Teaching and learning in Augusta’s schools uses the subject area overview provided by the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum is a series of frameworks specific to each academic subject which detail the progress of learning students are expected to achieve from kindergarten through graduation. Clear expectations for grade-level learning and experiential opportunities are delineated within the frameworks. During the elementary years, students begin their learning in English, History, Languages, Math, and Science. Each subject is designed to provide content knowledge, process and procedural knowledge, and introduces key concepts and principles.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Augusta District Curriculum
In Math, students build the foundation of problem-solving by learning about operations, measurement, ways of representing and verifying their work, and how to communicate mathematic information. Students learn how to work with various types of equations and perform logical reasoning in sequential order. In Science, the foundation of content knowledge encompasses life and earth sciences, principles of structures and the physical world, and topics in environmental science.
In English Language Arts, comprehension and analysis strategies are taught for both fiction and non-fiction. Students study vocabulary and grammar, and also the craft and structure of literature. By doing so, they are more informed as writers to make decisions about word choices, tone, and purpose. Students learn how to conduct research and use what they have read to inform their opinions and ideas. Supporting a thesis statement with evidence is an integral feature of the writing curriculum and students learn how to develop analytic writing that is cohesive, well organized, and on point.

Chalk Talk: Helping Children Develop Social Skills
Parents are a great model to a child on how to build social skills. To help build these skills parents can demonstrate how to have empathy for others by asking a child what they are feeling and talking about how certain situations make the parent feel. Another social skill children need to be aware of is how to manage their emotions. This can include feelings of anxiety, frustration and anger. Parents can open conversations with the child about how they deal with each of these feelings and see if the child has other acceptable ideas. Finally, talk through problems or decisions within a child’s hearing. Each of these skills enable the child to learn how to deal with emotions and interactions with other.
