Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Helens District Curriculum
Students begin to learn about the elements in literature from a young age. In elementary school students work on finding literary elements while working on their fluency and comprehension. They also read traditional stories and make predictions, comparisons and contrasts between several stories. These students are encouraged to select their own books to read when they enter middle school.
The students at St. Helens Schools learn to look around them for examples of science. They can look at the life cycle of water or of rocks, they can watch how a plant grows from a seed or they can see what systems are needed for a living thing to live. As they enter high school they will be able to look at wetlands and understand how this area is filled with science. The same for forests, they look at them and then develop a forest travel project for the area. Before graduating, some students may take a biology class that encourages them to face a current issue like the debate around genetically manufactured seeds.

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: Intellectual Development in Third-Graders
Third grade students have quite a bit of curiosity. It is not enough to tell them facts at this age, they also want to know why and how. If they ask a question that the answer is not at hand, look it up together. This shows the child that curiosity is not just for children. By this age, they have developed their own opinions and they may not match up with the parents. This is all right. Show the child that there are different ways to approach many things. Along with these changes, the third grade child wants more challenging activities. When presented a puzzle, most of them are able to find a way to complete it. Parents need to encourage their children in their activities. Make sure they know how proud you are of them by showing relatives what they have accomplished and make sure they have what they need to complete their projects.
