Sherman District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Sherman Independent School District bases their curriculum on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills to provide their students with well-rounded education. There are also electives in the arts, career-oriented subjects, and technology guided by this framework. This is a comprehensive framework for learning that emphasizes on core skills and develops them progressively, relying on past knowledge and building critical thinking skills by accessing what a student knows. These skills can then be used the rest of their lives as they become life-long learners.
We currently cover the following Sherman-area school district: Sherman Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sherman District Curriculum
The reading curriculum at Sherman Schools begins with the students learning how letters of the alphabet sound and then, when they are placed together, create words. The students also learn how to recognize sight words. They first learn words that have just a few letters such as a, the, cat, they soon are able to know on sight words that are made up of multiple syllables. By using these words and other strategies for decoding unknown words, students become fluent readers.
Mathematics at Sherman Schools begin with students learning number order, including how to recognize numbers, write numbers in order and, when given a list of numbers, place them in order. This leads to students learning how to group numbers to create addition and subtraction equations, as well as multiplication and division. Once they have learned each of these they are ready to face subject like algebra, statistics and calculus. These students are able to face problems that are presented to them with the knowledge that they can solve them.

Chalk Talk: Fifth Grade Science
When students enter fifth grade they have learned quite a bit about the world of science, however, this year brings great changes in this area. When a child finishes fifth grade they will have learned about creating a hypothesis, observing, measuring and recording changes in an experiment. They also will be able to describe the motion of an object. When they present facts they will have learned how to organize them and place them in order. The structure and function of different organisms along with details about the solar system will also be a part of their new knowledge of science. State standards can vary, but overall these are some of the items students will gain by the end of this year of adventure.
