Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Reading District Curriculum
Additionally, Reading constantly updates the curriculum portion of its website with news and information. In the elementary grades, The district uses the Math in Focus program, a world-class curriculum developed in Singapore. This program provides students with different style textbooks that have less auxiliary texts and graphics and connects the learning to skill building and real world activities.
The elementary grades utilize a balanced approach to literacy instruction, incorporating read alouds, shared reading, guided reading, independent reading, exposure to various genres, and word study; writing is also a major component of the English language arts curriculum. The five critical areas of reading—phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension—are embedded in instruction. These skills are further translated into the writing curriculum so that students can use them in practice, writing for different audiences and purposes.

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: Educational Jargon: Prediction
Having students make predictions is a common practice in education. This requires them to make an educated guess about what will happen in the future. It is common to have children make predictions before reading a story and prior to conducting an experiment in science. In the latter case, older students typically sculpt their predictions into more scientific hypotheses. In literacy, predicting is one of the most common pre-reading strategies. It is often done by having students preview the title and pictures in the story and then crafting their predictions. This method can also be used before reading textbooks in any content area, as students can browse graphics, headings, and bold terms in the chapter they will be reading. Predicting is important because it can demonstrate students’ prior knowledge of a topic and keeps them engaged in the reading or activity so that they can find out if their prediction comes true. For the act of making predictions to be meaningful, it is necessary for the class to return to their predictions after they read or perform an experiment. Students should determine whether or not their predictions ended up being correct, and if not, explain why.
