Content Development ProcessWhat students can learn at any particular grade level de-pends upon what they have learned before. Editorial teamswere assigned to construct items for all grade levels foreach concept. For example, all items for grades 1-5Operations and Algebra were created by the same team ofalgebra experts. All Figurative Language lessons forgrades 1-5 were created by the same team of languagearts experts.
3.MD.1. Tell and write time to the nearest minuteand measure time intervals in minutes. Solve wordproblems involving addition and subtraction oftime intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing theproblem on a number line diagram.
3.MD.4. Generate measurement data bymeasuring lengths using rulers marked with halvesand fourths of an inch. Show data by making a lineplot, where the horizontal scale is in appropriateunits whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Aligned To is Not Good EnoughHere are a few examples of how CCSS standards are different: Grade 3 Line Plots are marked by fractional increments. Grade 4 Line Plots require fraction operations. Elapsed Time includes finding solutions with number lines. Point of View in grade 3 addresses 1st, 2nd, 3rd voices. Point of View in grade 4 includes firsthand vs. secondhand.
Precise and rigorous, CCSS have specific progressions fromgrade to grade. They often combine multiple concepts.
