Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Weslaco District Curriculum
Geography is taught as a part of the Social Studies curriculum at Weslaco School. Students learn to use directional words in kindergarten when they learn words such as nearer, farther, up and down. Soon they are able to create a map of their classroom or their house. This is then translated into creating and reading maps of the community and then the state. They then learn about the regions of the United States along with information about the topography of various locations.
Biology is first learned in kindergarten when students learn about the basic parts of plants or animals. This is expanded upon in the next few years when students learn about the parts of these living being in more detail. They learn about the root hairs, and the reproductive systems of plants and animal. In middle and high school, students learn about the cells that make up each life form and they use laboratories to compare cells. Great emphasis is placed on the process of formulating and testing scientific hypotheses so students understand how to investigate scientific theories.

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: Social Development of Third Graders
Children that are third grade need parents to support them in building friendships. This is also about the age when words like geek enters their vocabulary, so parents need to make sure to remind them the importance of being nice to others and to welcome new friends into their lives. Most children of this age also like to spend as much time as they can with their friends, which means they will be excited about going to school. As much as they enjoy their friends, they can also be critical of others, including their teacher. If a child shows this behavior, talk about why they feel like this. This encourages them to use their words to explain and open a conversation. These tips should help parents with the ups and downs of third grade.
