Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wiggins District Curriculum
One of the areas of Mathematics that is covered by the Stone School’s is geometry. This is introduced to children by exposing them to shapes such as squares, circles and triangles. When they enter elementary they learn about perimeter, and measuring angles. Later, they go on to learn formulas to use to create shapes, including rhombuses. These students become citizens that are able to face problems with the skills to help solve them.
Science is a part of Stone School curriculum from day one. The children are introduced to science in the world that they know. As they mature they begin to look at each part of their world in more detail. They begin to look at the different systems that make up a human body, or a living plant or animal. Or they look into atoms or molecules, as well as DNA and RNA. The study of biology, chemistry, or physical science in high school opens the students eyes to the wonder in all of their world.

Chalk Talk: How to Help a Fifth Grade Students' Interest in Textbooks
Up until the fifth grade, classroom textbooks are usually more pictures than text. All at once, these students may be assigned to read five pages, of text that is densely printed. Add this to the reading in their other subjects and this can be a daunting task to face. Parents can help their children with this task by keeping a couple of ideas in mind. The first is not to tell them to sit down and read. This makes it sound like a chore that child may not have interest. Next, ask them to skim the pages for a few minutes. This allows them to see the main focus of the reading, without having to focus on every word. After they have seen what the main focus is, have them read each word of the assignment, then review with them to check for comprehension.
