Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum in Columbia Public Schools starts off with children learning how letters come together to create words that are used to share ideas in books, and in their own writing. As they mature they begin learn to blend letters together and to use content of reading to understand what is written. Their education in enriched by reading books such as “Gulliver’s Travels” and works from many different cultures and times.
Columbia students begin their Social Studies education by learning about the people in their neighborhood and around their schools. As they become more familiar with expanding borders, their education does the same. Students begin to learn about their town, county, state, nation and world. They learn how different cultures and different times helped to shape each of these into the areas that they know today. These students are given the desire to learn more and more about how they can have an influence on their own world today.

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: The Social Life of a First-Grader
Children of six and seven begin to see rules and regular routine as a way of feeling secure. They look to adults for this structure so they can see what is right and wrong. This applies to their social life also. If they see a parent, or guardian, concerned about the behavior of others, the child may become one that tries to make sure that all are following the rules. This includes telling others when someone misbehaves. This is a common mannerism in first grade. However, if a child makes it a common occurrence they may not feel secure in other areas of their lives. They may feel stress but don’t worry, this tendency to tell on others will pass when they feel secure again through routine and reassurance.
