WHAT PARENTS CAN DO TO HELP THEIR CHILDREN LEARN
The Common Core State Standards ask teachers to make 12 major "shifts" or changes in their classrooms - six shifts in English Language Arts and six shifts in Mathematics. As a parent, you can help and learn more by talking with your child about what they are learning. Ask open-ended questions about what they learned in school each day and read their homework. The attached document explains some of the ways that your child's classroom is changing and how you can help.
