What Your Child Should Know
Based on Common Core Standards
Written by Brian Galvin, MEd Chief Academic Officer
During normal summer breaks, kids lose about a month’s worth of what they learned the previous school year. With a much longer break due to Covid-19, that learning loss will be much greater. But that’s where we can help. Here are three simple steps to getting your child ready for the year ahead.
3 Steps to Prepping Your Child for the School Year
1. Find out what they know and what they should know
Since most schools use common core standards, with a little digging you can find out which skills your child should have learned in their last completed grade. However, we’ve done the digging for you. Here are the critical skills your child should know—broken down by grade.
2. Receive a personalized learning plan based on their needs
Once you have the list of the critical skills your child should know, you can figure out which skills they do know, and which skills they may have lost over the break. The easiest way to determine this is to have them take an adaptive assessment. Each assessment takes about 20 minutes.Adaptive Assessments
3. Get insights and suggestions to help them get caught up
Now that you know the skills that suffered, let’s build them up again. Encourage your student to work on those skills with our easy-to-follow instructional videos and practice problems.Practice Problems & Videos
