Kindergarten Common Core Standards
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The Standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce.
These Standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education experience so that they will graduate from high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs. The Standards are informed by the highest, most effective models from states across the country and countries around the world. They provide teachers and parents with a common understanding of what students are expected to learn and provide appropriate benchmarks for all students, regardless of where they live.
The Common Core State Standards:
• Are evidence-based.
• Are aligned with college and work expectations.
• Are clear, understandable and consistent.
• Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills.
• Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards.
• Are informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society.
Here are the Kindergarten Common Core Standards that your child will learn this year. They are listed in child- friendly, "I can" statements. We hope you find this information helpful!
