Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Boston District Curriculum
Children begin to learn about Social Studies by looking at the areas that they are most familiar with. This generally includes the classroom, neighborhood and the community. Students visit fire departments and grocery stores to build a familiarity with the service that people provide. By the time students reach high school, they are ready to spend more time on specific areas or time periods such as World History, Civics, or Virginia History. This allows students to feel a connection to their world and history.
Science, at Halifax County Public Schools, begin with students learning about cycles that surround them. In the early years they may learn the basic parts of a plant, then as they mature they learn about the various systems that are within the plant to help it to grow and to help leaves change colors in the autumn. The science classes at Halifax County Public Schools help students to wonder at the scientific world that surrounds them everyday.

Chalk Talk: Study Strategies to Teach Your Child
Every child should have a toolkit of study habits to help increase their success at school. Teachers do not have the time to teach all skills but there are several tactics that can be taught at home. To help a student find the text features in a book, first have them look at the cover of the book, the table of contents and the index. Then ask them to tell what the book is about. Go to the first chapter heading and see if the child can predict what that section is about. Try to use correct terminology when discussing the book, such as captions, and margins. Another skill that can be taught at home is how to read with a purpose. To do this, the child may have to read the assignment several times. This will help them find the main point and the key idea. With this in mind, the child can then re-read the section to see how all the parts work together.
