Raymore, Missouri Tutoring Programs
Get started with SchoolTutoring Academy's tutoring programs for Raymore, Missouri students.
Raymore District and Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards were adopted by 45 states in the US, including Missouri. The Common Core consists of more rigorous standards that expose students to more difficult text and require students to use higher order thinking skills to make decisions, generate ideas, and solve problems. Students begin their reading instruction in kindergarten as they learn to read, but quickly move into reading for information that helps them prove something. There is a greater emphasis on research, and students write persuasively.
We currently cover the following Raymore-area school district: Raymore-Peculiar R-11 School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Raymore District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students learn to summarize a story, cite details in the order they happen, and identify different literary genres such as fables and myths. They also learn about the writing process, and students are introduced to and develop the five stages of writing: prewriting, draft, edit, revise and publish. They are introduced to persuasive writing and learn to respond to writing by showing how it relates to themselves, society and other literary pieces.
Students work to solve math problems within the eight mathematical practices, which span all the grade levels. Students learn how to analyze various math strategies to choose how to solve problems, and appreciate how mathematics is useful in their lives and the world around them. Science and technology go hand in hand, offering students an opportunity to learn about the world around them and prepare for a fast-paced tomorrow.

Chalk Talk: How Can I Get My Child More Interested in Reading?
After children learn to read, they spend their lives reading to learn. Students figure out early on that there are different purposes for reading. Sometimes it’s to get information for a homework assignment, and sometimes it’s just because they like to get lost in the fascinating world of their favorite character. Sometimes they become attached to a series, or sometimes students find a topic that interests them and they just go with it. Not happening at your house? Try something new. Maybe an eReader instead of paper books will motivate your child. How about creating a reading nook somewhere in your child’s room or special area of the house? A small plastic swimming pool filled with blue and green bean bags makes a neat seat for reading. A special light mounted by your child’s bed that is intended for nighttime reading could make a difference. Expose your child to lots of text. Keep magazines, newspapers, and your own books in view around the home.
