The Council of Great City Schools offers roadmaps for Common Core Standards from kindergarten through 8th grade. The documents have a great focus on Common Core and even include small examples of the continuum of math beginning in kindergarten and progressing through the grades.
The Parents’ Guide to Student Success was developed in response to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics that more than 40 states have adopted. Created by teachers, parents, education experts, and others from across the country, the standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career.
