Common Core State Standards

The California Kindergarten Association is here to support you as you learn the new Common Core State Standards and adapt your teaching to help your students master them.

You can kick off your learning about the new Common Core State Standards by reading Common Core Standards for Young Learners  by our own Ada Hand and checking out the Common Core Curriculum Maps with ideas from teachers (funded by Pew with Gates Foundations money).
