ICS: Parent Guides

Posted on

With parent-teacher conferences next week, you might find yourself looking for handy guides to the Idaho Core for parents. Try these on for size!

3 IdeasEngageNY has a simple “Parent’s Backpack Guide” to the Common Core Standards. It guides families through each ELA and Mathematics shift and what might be coming home in their child’s backpack to support this change. The guide also features ways to support the Common Core at home. They have made a “Working with the ‘Shifts'” handout with more detailed ways parents can help as well.

The National PTA offers two-page parent guides to the Common Core for each grade level including High School. They also have an Idaho specific guide to the new S-BAC assessment that includes sample questions. A PDF can by downloaded be following this link: PTA Idaho Assessment Guide

And lastly, Hello Literacy features a “3 Key Ideas for Parents” one page guide available for free on their Teachers Pay Teachers website.

Happy Conferencing!Jennifer Signature
