Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richfield District Curriculum
By Kindergarten, students are expected to share opinions, inform and explain, entertain through narratives and other creative text. They will be able to read from left-to-right, top-to-bottom, and page by page; know and use high-frequency words and letter sounds; read reader-emergent texts with purpose and understanding; and the ability to read books with pictures that support understanding, use sentence patterns, and possess common and frequently used words. Even in kindergarten, students are introduced to the beginning of pattern recognition.
A goal of the math curriculum is to prepare students for algebra, and successful completion of pre-algebra by 8th grade. Spatial reasoning skills are developed for the purposes of geometry and, by the end of high school classes in statistics and probability that meet the state standards for data analysis and probability. The 2015 graduating class faces the Algebra completion requirement by 8th grade, and the completion of an Algebra II credit or its equivalent.

Richfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Richfield Public Schools’ curriculum relies on the state standards to guide direction instruction, while simultaneously using complex tasks and assignments to meet the skills and strategies needed for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The emphasis in both content areas is for students to be successful in college and in the professional workplace of today. Each strategy to learn a given concept and idea in ELA and Math is for the purposes of solving complex tasks that will help students master key ideas and concepts at a faster rate. Problem solving and higher level thinking are also fostered, with a decided emphasis on the various content areas.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: The Importance of the Base 10 Blocks
Starting in Kindergarten and the later grades, the importance of Base Ten Blocks cannot be understated. A child’s understanding of the Base 10 is most suited for the use of the manipulatives. The broad framework of number size, number relations, flexibly decomposing and reconfiguring numbers, and thinking multiplicatively happens in the teaching of Base 10. By taking advantage of the ease of mathematical manipulatives, concepts such as addition, subtraction, number sense, place value, and counting are introduced, and students engage with these concepts by using the manipulatives. Using the three-dimensional blocks come at an important time in a student’s academic life when they’re in elementary school. Teachers can successfully introduce students to concepts by the practice of modeling, which is done through the use of the Base 10 Blocks. Since cognitive development begins in Kindergarten and the earliest grades, the use of the blocks comes at a time when they’re most receptive and capable of grasping basic mathematical concepts.
