Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duncanville District Curriculum
The reading curriculum at Duncanville Schools begins with children learning all types of strategies. First they learn how to hold books and to read from left to right and from the top to the bottom. Soon they learn how to look at the consonants of a word, or to break the word into syllables, to help them understand words and decode them. They also memorize sight words that they recognize upon seeing them. The words begin with one or two letters and move up to multiple-syllabic words. By the time students graduate they will have strategies that will assist them in any reading they come across.
The social studies curriculum helps the student understand how cultures and settlements develop over time. They learn about the different people who make up the history of Texas. They also learn how people around the world choose where they live. Some people settle due to topographical features or due to trading routes. All of the students are given the tools to see how people around the world are connected.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Kindergarten Science
Children in kindergarten are curious and excited to learn about almost everything. This includes science. Although curriculum standards may vary from state to state overall children in kindergarten learn these things. These children learn about the experimental process and they learn how to use their senses to explore their world. One of the favorite areas of science for children is when they study life science such as the needs of a plant to survive and the needs of a seed to sprout. They also will be able to classify objects by outer characteristics. There are also plenty of parks parents can take their children to and explore nature together. Parents need to take the excitement that comes home with their children and help it to grow.
