Herndon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Through the use of the Virginia Department of Education’s Standards of Learning, the teachers have a starting point so that their curriculum can inspire the students of their schools to reach their full potential. Each subject begins with the fundamentals and then increases the complexity of learning objectives within the same strands of the subject, like writing in Language Arts or algebra in Math. The district follows this curriculum which is further enhanced by the electives and extracurriculars available to students.
We currently cover the following Herndon-area school district: Fairfax County Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Herndon District Curriculum
The writing section of the Language Arts curriculum begins with students completing a Daily 5. In this, students gain consistency in their work as they learn tactics to complete the goals of reading to themselves, reading to someone else, listening to reading, working on writing and working with words. This foundation helps the students when they learn the processes of writing, including planning, drafting, revising, editing and publishing.
Probability and statistics is a part of the mathematics curriculum. This subject is addressed at a young age as students are asked to tally and recount information by using graphs, picture graphs and tables. Each year these students learn different ways to display and interpret data, including pictographs, bar graphs, circle graphs and line plots. They also learn the language needed to present a knowledgeable interpretation of the information that has been gathered.

Chalk Talk: How to Prepare for a New School
Whether due to a move, or graduation, most students have to face the uncertainty of entering a new school at some point in their education. To help alleviate the fears, or doubts, there are a few things that parents can do. If a child is afraid that they will not have any friends in the new school, remind them about being friendly and looking the other child in the eye when talking with them. This will open the door to a possible friendship. At times, students have to ride a bus to the new school; this also can raise many doubts. Go over with the child the proper way to enter and exit the bus. If the parent is aware of the bus driver’s rules, go over these with the child also. Then let the child know what is to be expected of them when they come home. Are they to begin homework, or perhaps they are allowed so much down-time before work. Make sure the expectations are known. If the child is unsure of the lay-out of the new school, schedule a time for a tour of the building. The child will get to see the classrooms, lockers, lunch room and gym and be more familiar on the first day of school.
