The workheet for kindergarten has always been very straightforward.
If you need to write down your math problems and add your answers to the end, you simply take a pencil and pencil eraser and start writing.
This year, however, some kindergarteners are struggling to read and understand this simple workbook, according to a study by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, a nonprofit organization that is working to improve the math and reading skills of America’s kindergarteners.
The Partnership for the Common Core Standards is working with preschool districts to update the workbooks to help students read and write math problems as they progress through the year, according a news release from the Partnership.
The latest edition of the workheats, which are being revised to be more user-friendly, is available on the Partnership website, and will be available through the school year starting next month.
According to the Partnership, more than 20 states have updated their workhets to meet the standards and the work is being used by more than 60,000 kindergarteners each year.
The workheat is updated each school year to reflect the latest research and feedback from the Institute of Medicine.
Some preschool districts are using the worksheets to help them update their math and science workbooks, according the Partnership release.
“Kindergarden workhears are essential tools for students and teachers in our classrooms and are one of the primary ways that we evaluate their readiness for kindergarten,” said Jill Smith, director of the Partnership’s Work in Education division.
Parents can find a copy of the new workheaters on the Common Child, Kindergarten, and Primary worksheats page on the nonprofit’s website.
The workhelets, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Common Children Worksheets Library, are intended to be used for one to two weeks, according that release.
If a child has trouble reading or understanding the work, they can either use the pencil or the eraser to fill in the missing spaces, according their release.
The workbooks also offer feedback on how well students are doing in school, according.
To get the updated workheatthes, preschool districts will have to pay for the work and then submit the work to the government for inclusion in the new standards.
