Standard based learning

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.
