Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Friendswood District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Friendswood School covers many topics. In kindergarten, children learn about the state they are living in, including the symbols that represent the state. Soon students learn about the importance citizens of the state have in caring for their surroundings by taking part in a service project. They learn about civic engagement by studying various leaders in American history, and participate in projects to understand how to contribute to a well-functioning society.
Students at Friendswood Schools learn how to read by integrating other subject matter into this curriculum. The students learn about Texas by reading tales on this state. They then discuss which of these tales are fictional and which are non-fiction. By continuing this cross-integration of subjects into their learning they are able to learn about other historical eras by reading stories like “Gatsby” and “The Grapes of Wrath” when they are in high school.

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: Emotional Development in Second Grade
In second grade many children need support and open-minded parents as children are trying to find out who they are by creating their own identity. They will become more social, gain logic and reasoning skills and they will begin to strive for some independence. While this is going on, they are also looking for assurances for their actions. They are afraid of being through of poorly. Parent can help them by complimenting them and finding ways to build up their self-esteem. Second grade children are also emotional and need someone to talk to about their feelings, however, they may not be able to express themselves. Generally, girls will break into tears and look for emotional help while boys try not to cry and generally will not ask for help. Regardless, parent need to open the door so that each child will speak about their feelings while being sympathetic. With these hints, parents can help their child through this emotional time.
