Information about the update, revision, and alignment of the state's current English language development (ELD) standards to the CCSS for ELA.
This document is based on an analysis that determined the sub-skills students need to achieve in each of the Foundational Skills (K–5) in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). It contains five sections, each targeting one grade level in: Print Concepts, Phonological Awareness, Phonics and Word Recognition, and Fluency. It also includes instructional examples aligned to the sub-skills, giving teachers samples of activity types that facilitate acquisition of the sub-skills.
These tools provide specific guidance for what the CCSS for ELA/Literacy and Mathematics look like in planning and practice.  They are designed as developmental tools for teachers and those who support teachers.
Use the Instructional Practice Guides for:
  • Teacher self-reflection
  • Peer-to-peer observation and feedback
