Help your parents understanding the importance of the CCSSs to their child's Academic Success with this 36 page handout. Show them how they can help be part of the team with this collection of Common Core Resources for Second Grade. This packet is designed to help both parents and teachers navigate their way through the changes and complexities of the Common Core State Standards for 2nd Grade. Topics covered are for both ELA and Math, and address Common Core's: Instructional Shifts, Critical Areas of focus for 2nd grade, Key Features of the standards, Glossary of ELA and Math Terms parents should know, Common Core Standards, How parents can reinforce what is being taught in the classroom, and how parents can help teach Comprehension Strategies.
Because of the newness, rigor, and complexity of the CCSSs, this packet can be used as a handout to walk parents through the CCSSs:at parent conferences, a Parent Involvement Activity to work with your School Improvement Plan, and to assist teachers new to 2nd Grade or Common Core. This packet can also be used as a stand alone product, I have tried to reduce the amount of educational jargon when possible, to make more easily understood by those new to the educational system.
