Children's LiteratureWhether your are home schooling or just parenting, a manual on what the children should be learning in school is one of the most valuable tools a parent can have—and this book is one of the best. Not only does this book elucidate the standards, it offers tips, guidance, and activities to teach the concepts. In line with the principles of No Child Left Behind, the book covers first grade requirements for math, language arts (including reading, grammar, and writing), science, and social studies. Additionally, the author, a consultant on national education standards, uses the first three chapters to overview the developmental ranges of a first grader and discuss the different learning styles of children. Using the relatively easy terms and charts provided, parents will get a peek into how the educational system can work for their child. Chapters 4 through 9 are packed with the tools needed to supplement or supervise first grade learning. Parents new to a school, or just new to school on the whole, often wonder if children are being taught all they need to know. How much is too much? Is my child ahead or behind? This resource, in combination with a copy of your child's curriculum and state standards, will lay it out in detail to help a parent monitor the education of their child. 2005, Jossey-Bass/Wiley, Ages Adult.
