Common Core is the new national education objectives that are currently in 45 states*. We have discussed What is Common Core? How will it affect my child? and What can I do to prepare my child for Common Core? We also have posted sample test questions for the new assessment. In this part of our Common Core series, we are answering the question: What does my child need to know for Common Core?
Each grade level has certain things they need to know at that grade level in math and English Language Arts/Literacy. Your child will be tested on these things starting in the 2014-2015 school year. Below you will find parent-friendly versions of these objectives for grades kindergarten – fifth grade.
I have revised this section of the post.
Parent-Friendly Standards From Teacher’s Hero.
