CCSS calls for the integration of topical content into language arts, in addition to the coherent and systematic building of knowledge within and across grade levels.
Knowledge Quest! Read-Aloud Collections make it simple to meet this CCSS requirement while covering many topics—from science and social studies to world history and literature—across grade levels from toddlers to grade 4.
The beauty of a read-aloud program means children can absorb content without having to balance decoding words with reading comprehension.
Mastering new subjects and vocabulary requires providing repeated opportunities to hear, think about, and discuss any new topic. That's why the guidebook is included with the read-alouds, making it easy to use this program at home and in the classroom.
The Knowledge Quest! Read-Aloud program exposes children to rich vocabulary and a range of topical content.
The collections also build systematically across grade levels (toddlers to grade 4) and within each grade level, gradually increasing in complexity in its text and content coverage.
The overall goal of Common Core is to make children college-ready—and that preparation needs to start in the early grades.
The measurement of success with Common Core heavily depends on parents, teachers, and schools working together with vision, commitment, and consensus to further children's education.
Effective teaching means taking an integrated approach to topical content and skill building that doesn't take the fun out of learning.
