Curriculum Central ELA Kindergarten

This year, many schools in the SCSD will be utilizing a new resource to support our ELA Instructional Program in grades K-1.  This resource is Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA).  The implementation of this resource does not modify the standards that have being taught over the course of the last few years.  It does, however, impact some of the pacing of instruction over the course of the year.  Below you will find helpful information to support your implementation of this new resource.
