Smithsonian English/Language Arts (PK-12)
We’ve taken the themes and topics that are most often taught at each grade level and organized resources by grade band. If available, we’ve indicated the Common Core State Standard (CCSS) (http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/) most appropriate for the resource. Many resources cover more than one standard, so we’ve only indicated the top match if available. Look through all grade levels to find a source that works best for you and your students. If the resource is Spanish language or bi-lingual, that is indicated by a check box.To search for a keyword in the document, use Control-F or Command-F. Email questions or comments to us: learningATsi.edu.
