California's Department of Education page describes the grade level standards required under the new standards.
 
Khan Academyhttp://www.khanacademy.org/
Over 4,000 short videos that can help students with learning concepts in a wide variety of areas, such as math, science or history.

Online site from McGraw-Hill to accompany the school district's new Treasures reading program.

Other Academically Oriented Sites Used at Fairmont

  • www.MobyMax.com : We are exploring this site for its links to Common Core.  The kids like it because as they complete lessons/quizzes online, they earn "game time" for the site.
  • www.xtramath.com : This is a site to help with basic math fact fluency.  Good for all grades and the teacher can receive reports of how much progress the students are making.
