Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Staunton District Curriculum
The reading curriculum is part of the Language Arts program at Staunton City Public School. The students begin by learning how to make predictions of the books being read. Then they learn to summarize the story with a beginning, middle and end. As they build on these skills they learn about figurative langue and the elements that are found in a narrative work, including the setting, character, plot, conflict and theme. These students become critical thinking citizen as they graduate and take their place in the world.
Social Studies, or History, at Staunton City Public Schools begin by helping students become aware of the world around them, the neighborhood, city, and state. As they grow, they begin to expand their knowledge by learning about ancient countries, such as Rome, and China. Students also learn about the state of Virginia and its role in the settling of this country. .

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: Helping A Child With Fears of First Grade
Many children, when faced with first grade, become a little fearful. This is due to the idea that they are now entering new territory where they will be expected to learn many new things. This fear can appear as clinginess, changes in sleeping or eating habits along with many other ways. To help a child overcome this fear, help them to see that the unknown can become familiar. If a child is unsure about the new schedule they will have to follow, start the schedule in the summer. Perhaps they are afraid of some of the new ideas they will have to learn. If this is the case, find some fun or creative ways to practice these skills at home. The internet can help find many ideas. The most important thing is to find out what is the foundation of their fear and then try to find a way to help them face the fear. Then they can look upon first grade as a wonderful step in their education.
