Get your parents ready for back to school with this 28 pg. instructional Common Core overview! It is designed to help both parents and teachers navigate their way through the changes and complexities of the Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten. Topics covered are for both ELA and Math, and address Common Core's: Instructional Shifts, Critical Areas of focus for Kindergarten, Key Features of the standards, Glossary of ELA and Math Terms parents should know, Kindergarten Common Core Standards, and examples of how parents can reinforce what is being taught in the classroom. Please share with others the availability of other grade level parent CCSS Resource packets.
Because of the newness, rigor, and complexity of the CCSSs, this packet can be used as a handout to walk kindergarten parents through the CCSSs: at a Back to School Night, a Parent Involvement Activity to work with your School Improvement Plan, and to assist teachers new to Kindergarten 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. PLEASE provide feedback and follow for news of new additions. : ) Thank You!
