Parents are Partners
Working with the “Shifts”
What Parents Can Do to Help their Children Learn
The Common Core State Standards ask teachers to make 6 shifts in Mathematics. These changes may be tough at first as students and teachers adjust to higher expectations. As a parent, you can help and learn more by talking with your child about what they are learning. Ask open-ended questions about what they learned in school each day, read their homework and attend school events to learn about what their teachers expect.
