Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Siloam Springs District Curriculum
On its website, the district posted information clarifying what the Common Core Standards are and what they are not. Although the standards are being incorporated nationwide, they were not developed by the federal government but by the individual states. Furthermore, the federal government does not require states to implement the standards in their instruction. They cover math and English language arts; however, they also connect these subject areas with others.
The school district has implemented the Common Core Standards and explains how they have impacted both literacy and math. In literacy, the standards list specific texts that students will read in school and require that they read more of a variety of materials; additionally, other subject areas—science, social studies, and technology—have been integrated into the literacy standards. In math, students have fewer standards to meet, but the goal is for them to gain a deeper understanding of the content.

- Another Award for a Siloam Springs Educator - A teacher at Main Street Academy was named the Alternative Learning Educator (ALE) of 2013. This is quite an honor, as there are 400 ALE programs across the state of Arkansas.

At the conference, she was surrounded by all of her colleagues, who gave her a standing ovation.
- High School Swim Coach Wears Many Swim Caps - The Siloam Springs High School swimming coach of 13 years is now teaching a swimming wellness class at the local John Brown University. The course is not only designed to discuss the physical, athletic aspects of the sport—as she does with her team—but to instruct swimmers as to how to prepare for accidents or other incidents in the pool and connect with swimming on emotional and spiritual levels. The coach visits John Brown often, as her team holds their home meets and practices at the university’s pool complex. In the high school, she also teaches special education, geometry, and algebra.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Having Fun to Learn to Read
Parents of struggling readers often ask what they can do at home to help their children improve their reading skills. Struggling readers are frequently reluctant readers as well, so it can be difficult to motivate them to read and practice reading skills—especially outside of the classroom. However, parents may not realize that they can play fun games with their children so that they can work on their reading skills, and very young children may not even be aware that this is occurring. Some of their favorite, familiar games may be transformed, and many games and their components can be made and require no financial commitment. Two areas in particular in which games can help are phonological processing and vocabulary (sight word recognition, especially). One example is checkers: Parent can write words on pieces of paper or plastic and place them on each square, and the player must recite the word when he or she lands on it. There are many ideas available on the Internet for parents to explore.
