One of the most frequent questions we're asked as teachers is "How can I help my child at home?" Most parents and guardians have good intentions of helping their child succeed, but don't have the proper background knowledge and tools to be the most effective.
This resource is intended to be a stand-alone guide for parents and guardians to help reinforce the Common Core Standards at home.
For each standard, there is a brief overview of the skills as well as multiple activities for families to engage with the standard "at home," "on the go," and "before bed." Handouts can be distributed one at a time before teaching each standard or as a packet before a long unit. Use your personal judgment to decide what is best for your families.
Included in this resource:
1. Standards aligned to the Operations and Algebraic Thinking domain (3 standards divided into 2 back-to-back pages)
2. Parent letter describing the resource
3. Common Core checklist
