Educating Our Parents: Understanding the DeSoto District Curriculum
Social Studies at DeSoto Schools introduce students to life around them. Students learn the history of their city, and state. Then, after they have learned this, the students learn about the United States and the history of the colonization and the cultures that have combined to create this nation. The curriculum also includes lessons on the other cultures around the world and the history behind each of them.
The science curriculum at DeSoto Schools teaches students to become fluent readers. This begins by teaching children how to read from left to right and from top to bottom. After this students begin to discover how to read by learning sight words. Soon, students are learning about different strategies to help them decode words. These include looking at the first and last letter of the word and breaking a larger word into segments. By the time they graduate, students learn about different genres, as well as how to recognize perspective and author’s view.

Chalk Talk: Fifth Grade Language Arts
In the fifth grade, students are preparing to make the leap to middle school. This generally means that the students’ workload becomes a little more daunting. Curriculum may vary but usually students face book reports, spelling tests and reading lists. They are going to be faced with changes in their interpretation due to new information or their past. They will begin to recognize various genres, both in reading and writing. They will be able to use an author’s point to come to conclusions. In addition their spelling lists will become longer, with harder words and they will be expected to write legible, both in print and in cursive writing. By the end of the year, these students may be able to answer their parents’ questions in this subject area.
