Grade School


The resources in this category provide general information; beginning with preschool choices and continuing with what children learn in each Grade. Common Core Standards are explained. Education tests for private schools are noted. In Reading/Food for Thought, information and research on Education methods, issues and concerns facing students in our schools is given to make you aware of these. This is a broad topic to which I will continue to add information and blog about.

Preschool – Fifth Grade

Kindergarten – 12th Grade

This site presents a comprehensive guide to Common Core Standards and shows instruction content by grade level with additional resource topics.

Common Core Assessment Tests

This site discusses the development of the CCSS (Common Core State Standards) Assessment Tests. Tests are developed through the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. This is a group of states working together to form guidelines to test K-12 students to make sure students are on track under the CCSS. CCSS are designed with the intention of ensuring students are ready for college or a career upon graduating from high school. Grade level assessments are designed to show the progress students are making toward being ready for college and careers. It specifies what progress should be made each year and gives guidelines to teachers for helping students who may be falling behind.
