The National PTA has put together a guide in English and Spanish to familiarize parents with the requirements in English language arts and math in the Common Core State Standards. Created by teachers, parents, education experts, and others from across the country, the standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career.
The guide includes:
Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade, once the standards are fully implemented.
Activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.
Methods for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child's teacher.
Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).
