Welcome to the elementary curriculum resource site for parents and families!  We are excited that you are interested in the learning experiences that your child will have throughout the coming year.  
    Learning happens all the time, not just when kids are in school.  These documents are an excellent resource for you to continue the conversation of learning with your child at home.  So, instead of asking "What did you do at school today?"  You can now say "Tell me about what you are learning in your Narrative Unit for English Language Arts."  
    As the year progresses, come back to this site often to inform yourself of what your child is learning in school. Knowing this information will only enrich your conversations with your child.

What will instruction look like in ELA and math?

  • Common Instructional Framework

    The Elementary Common Instructional Framework defines the local expectations for teaching ELA and mathematics in Cabarrus County elementary schools. 

    Videos to Support Student Learning at Home

    The videos provided are to assist in learning more about the Elementary ELA and Math standards. These videos explain the standards and/or instructional practices that support the standards. This site is a work in progress.  Check back often for new additions.

How will my child be assessed?

  • Report Cards and Progress Reports

    • An explanation of how to interpret report card scoring
