Note: Spanish used in products in the store here is the more informal Latino Spanish actually used by most students from Latin America rather than the formal Castillian of Spain; so there are some differences in grammar, spelling and or vocabulary even as there are with American and British English.
Note also: Many of my products mention and support educational standards such as used in various states and districts; also the Common Core State Standards that were written and developed by the National Governors’ Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers © Copyright 2010.

Any use of “aligned with” or “aligned to” also simply mean in the supportive spirit of.
