The Core Knowledge philosophy, provides a carefully sequenced set of skills and content with an emphasis on the knowledge that is most useful and productive for children living in American society today. Core Knowledge provides a clear outline of what children are expected to learn in school. This outline also provides a common ground for communication between parents and educators.
The Core Knowledge What Your -- Grader Needs to Know series was created specifically for parents. In one convenient volume per grade, from What Your Preschooler Needs to Know through What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know, this eight-volume series provides parents, teachers, and children with an engaging, illustrated introduction to the important knowledge outlined in the Core Knowledge Sequence.
