# Private, In-Home Tutoring in Littleton, New Hampshire

## Littleton District and Curriculum

Littleton School District uses the NH College and Career Ready Standards as the basis for teaching and learning in all subject areas. The Standards provide educators with a clear sequence of learning objectives that help students master each topic. Core academics is supplemented by electives in arts, business, other interest-based offerings that connect students with their interest. The district’s goal is to ensure students are ready for post-secondary life and have had learning experiences that prepare them for it. As a result, students in the district are able to develop a lifelong love of learning that helps them remain interested in education and curious about the world around them.

We currently cover the following Littleton-area school district: Littleton School District.

## Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Littleton District Curriculum

A large part of the elementary Common Core Standards for Math is working with numbers and operations in base ten. By the end of elementary school, students will be expected to understand how to multiplying using all multiples up to 10—particularly those up to 100. They need to understand the rules in order to easily solve these types of problems. They should recognize that any product (solution) of a multiplication problem involving multiples of 10 must end in a zero—just as the multiples of 10 themselves do (10, 20, 30, 40, 50).

For example, if they are asked to solve 90 x 3 and they drop that one zero, they will be left with 9 x 3. Because they should have their basic math facts memorized, they should determine that 9 x 3 equals 27; they then add the zero back on, and the product is 270. The number of zeroes added back on is equal to the number of zeroes that were dropped; although third graders will mostly work with problems involving only one zero. Students will soon see that, although these problems can initially look intimidating, they can use simple rules to solve these problems efficiently.

## Chalk Talk: Homework Time Tips

At one time or another, most children do not like homework, but they still complete it. When a child is anxious at the thought of homework, school or tests, they may decide to ignore it, which only makes their anxiety worse. Parents have options to help their child overcome this feeling. The first step is for the parents to talk with the children about what is troubling them. Help them to realize that they have support and, together, you will find ways to overcome this. After this, talk with the teacher, frequently, to see what is needed and to see what is happening in the classroom. Parents also need to remember to control their own frustration over the situation, however, gently, but firmly, convey to the child the need to complete the assignment. Also remind them that the parent will be there to help and support the child. Another aid is to have a dedicated homework space.
