Today’s incredible example is actually a whole collection of resources from the Council of the Great City Schools: The Nation’s Voice for Urban Education.
The resource is called Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core. CGCS has designed a beautiful and parent friendly resource for each grade that explains what types of reading experiences schools will be providing to children as a result of the CCCSS as well as ways to partner with the school and ways to support success at home.
The booklets are FREE and available for READING and MATH in both ENGLISH and SPANISH.
Take a look! These would be a great to distribute at back-to-school open house, parent conferences, or other family events throughout the year.
