Educating Our Parents: Understanding The Colony District Curriculum
Grammar is a part of the Language Arts curriculum at The Colony Schools. Students go from learning how to create sentences with capital letters and to end with the proper punctuation, to recognizing and using prepositions and prepositional phrases. As they continue, they uncover secrets to creating a well-constructed sentence. This leads them to be able to write in a wider variety of styles later, such as persuasive or expository, and to also understand how to organize and present ideas in writing.
The Science curriculum at The Colony Schools includes the study of matter. Students learn about the properties of matter in kindergarten and first grade. Within a few years they find out how forces have an effect on matter. This study is continued as they learn about the different form of energy as they create conversion gizmos and energy transformation gizmos. By including hands-on activities, demonstrations and lectures students are able to see how cause and effect impact the phenomenon they are studying.

The Colony District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Colony Schools help students face challenges by creating a curriculum around the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills which leads to profound learning. There is an emphasis on critical thinking, and it is essentially developed by accessing past knowledge through reflection, which helps provide the frame of reference necessary for analysis, problem-solving and other critical thought. Another key goal of instruction is to find points of integration between subject areas so that students can see how the relevancy in what they are learning.
We currently cover the following The Colony-area school district: Lewisville Independent School District.

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: Fifth Grade Social Life
Around the fifth grade, students begin to take more of an interest in other students than they do themselves. Unfortunately, this is not always done in the nicest way. This is usually the time when gossiping and teasing takes the foreground and can cause problems in the classroom and at home. This action is a method to gain popularity. Unfortunately, this means that others are being victimized. Parents can help in this area by keeping the lines of communication open with the child and, whether the child is dishing out the words or is the recipient, let them know they can talk with you and that certain behavior is not to be allowed, either at school or at home. This is one of the many developmental milestones that we all go through!
