A good idea is to go into the student curriculum for whatever subject your student is behind in and click on the Student Resources section. There are numerous wonderful resources to help your student, including reteach,video tutorials, and leveled readers.
For more information on supporting your student in meeting standards, see resources for the following content areas:
Students should always read every day, and do activities outside and around the house that applies information that they have learned. Examples: Cooking, baking, building, constructing, creating, writing, researching, and experimenting
The common core standards require a greater focus in mathematics. Rigorous lesson delivery includes conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, as well as application in problem solving contexts. In language arts, the common core standards include reading material with growing complexity of texts and reading comprehension that include academic vocabulary. In writing, students are expected to use evidence from the text, provide well defended claims and clear information. The new CA History Social Studies framework focuses on students’ ability to connect history with present day situations and cultures with critical writing skills. The CA Next Generation Science Standards requires students to explore and observe phenomenon in everyday experiences. It is important to give your student opportunities to practice all of these skills at home, by giving them age appropriate experiences with discussion.
