     (Science and Social Studies)
     
    Globe
    This is outstanding curriculum that will expand your child's mind and interest in learning. Core Knowledge builds on prior knowledge from grade to grade which avoids repetition of material. The Core Knowledge curriculum stems from the idea that all students should attain a "core" or common body of knowledge. This knowledge base includes a strong understanding of all curriculum and concepts.
     

    Core Knowledge:

    *Eliminates gaps and repetitions in student learning

    *Provides an important foundation for future learning

    *Promotes fairness and excellence for all students

    *Helps provide a common ground for communication in a diverse society

     
    In addition to the wonderful Core Knowledge topics taught this year, your child will also be taught the Common Core District Science and Social Studies Curriculum Standards as well.
