GreatSchools releases Common Core aligned videos

Milestones- Is your child on track in school- - GreatKids - MilestonesEducation non-profit GreatSchools is out with videos in English and Spanish that detail Common Core expectations for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The short videos are meant to help educators and parents better understand what children should know how to do and when.

For example, the math videos for first grade ask, “How easily does your first grader add and subtract?” “Does your first grader understand the tens and ones places?” and “Can your first grader tackle word problems?”

These videos are particularly useful because Common Core has significantly changed the way that some concepts in early math are taught—to the point where parents may have difficulty knowing how to help their children or what grade level expectations are for student performance.
