Hi Parents -
There is a new website for teachers, parents and others that is to explain Iowa standards broken down by grade level: www.iowacore.gov. It was posted in the Virtual Backpack section of our school’s website this month: http://www.edline.net/files/_5QJMF_/3980dd0b77ac9cbc3745a49013852ec4/Iowa_Core_Website_Letter_to_Parents.pdf
At the bottom of the website (scroll to bottom and in the right hand column) there is a link to “Iowa Core Parent Guides”. This takes you to a listing of grade by grade summary sheets which help show you what your child will be learning during their school year. While these sheets are high level, I still found them a useful starting point.
This website may be of use to you as parent teacher conferences begin at the end of the month.
