Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sandwich District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards for English language arts for grades K-5 incorporate standards and anchors for reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. The standards for students in grades 6-12 include reading literature, reading informational texts, writing, speaking and listening, and language. Also included are literacy standards for social studies, science, and technical subjects.
Sandwich Public Schools are in their third year of using a district-wide systematic approach to reading instruction called Literacy Collaborative. This is a balanced literacy approach in which students are exposed to a significant amount of reading and writing from the time they are in kindergarten. The Literacy Collaborative is based around the district’s core beliefs about literacy: that reading and writing should be enjoyable and rewarding for children, all students are owed a rich literacy environment that fosters a love for reading, and literacy instruction should be built as a result of authentic assessments that reveal the specific needs of students.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Sandwich students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Sandwich District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Sandwich Public Schools use the Common Core State Standards. In literacy, these standards are used to get students college- and career-ready, meaning that they are able to read, understand, and analyze complex texts of various genres independently; build strong content knowledge when reading about and researching a wide range of subjects; both comprehend and critique; use relevant textual evidence when writing or speaking about literary works; use technology and digital media strategically and to enhance all their literacy skills; and understand different perspectives and cultures.

- Seniors Show School Pride Through Lip Dub - When two Sandwich High School seniors wanted a way to capture the spirit of their school, they decided a lip dub was in order. The students—with the backing of their peers, teachers, administrators, and all other school staff—created a high-energy lip dub featuring several students to the tune of “Can’t Hold Us Down.” The students used an expensive camera with slow-motion capabilities that they funded by selling “Dollar for Lip Dub Lollipops.”

SHS’s former principal talked of the friendship he had forged with one of the honored students, while the other student’s stepfather and mother thanked their daughter’s classmates. As part of the Class of 2013’s gift, the group also funded improvements to the basketball courts.

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: Making a Spelling Lesson “Sparkle”
Spelling can be one of the most boring topics to cover, but it is typically a necessary part of the curriculum, so how can teachers make students a little more interested and engaged to learn how to spell? Educational games often do the trick, and there is a particular classroom spelling game that has been around for a while but that children still adore: “Sparkle.” This is a simple yet loved game: The teacher has the students either line up or gather in a circle somewhere in the classroom and chooses someone to start as well as the direction that students will spell in. The teacher then calls out the first word, which is probably from the class’s weekly spelling list, and the first speller must say the word and the first letter. From there, each student says the next letter in the word. This is a great spelling review game that is fun for the students, involves a little bit of luck, and—most importantly—requires students to take spelling seriously!
