The Common Core standards were designed with the idea all students in the public school system have the same knowledge base. They are detailed and thorough, and sometimes it is difficult to see who is supposed to learn what. These pages are intended to provide an initial picture of what is expected in the standards or “Anchors” in literacy for each grade.
All of the information in the Common Core pages was retrieved from: http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/. Please visit this site for more information on higher grades.
