Support Common Core Literacy with Electronic Resources, Part 1
NOTE: This is the beginning of a three-part series on how the State Library’s electronic resources can support the Common Core.
Teachers can help students become college and career ready and master Common Core standards by using State Library electronic resources.
Common Core English Language Arts is comprised of 6 strands. We’ve made some connections between the strands and State Library electronic resources. What other connections can you make?
1) Reading for Foundational Skills
The emphasis here is on learning to read, especially kindergarten through 2nd grades. World Book Kids promotes foundational reading with large font, images and videos, read aloud, and reading games.
2) Reading for Literature
This strand emphasizes reading for different purposes and in different formats. All World Book modules, SIRS Discoverer and SIRS Issues Researcher give Lexiles to help readers find the right article for their reading level. SIRS Discoverer contains short fiction stories for grades K-9 from popular children’s magazines such as Highlights.
Let the South Dakota State Library e-resources found at library.sd.gov help you meet Common Core standards and enhance learning for all ages.
