Common Core Standards
Common Core State Standards Initiative
As of June 2010 the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers released the final Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social studies, and Technical Subjects and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
The final documents, as well as supporting materials, are available at http://www.corestandards.org; for your convenience. This website includes additional resources including statements about the application of the standards to students with disabilities, English language learners, and other.
Third grade is no longer what it was! Please become familiar with what your children are learning/or expected to learn.
