Common Core: What Does My Child Need To Know? (Common Core Part 3)

Common Core - What Does My Child Need To Know

Common Core is the national education objectives that are currently in many states.  (See which ones here).  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.  The Common Core tests began in the 2014-2015 school year.  Below you will find parent-friendly versions of the English Language Arts/Literacy objectives for grades kindergarten – fifth grade.

I have updated this section of the post.
