The Common Core State Standards do not always map onto the development stages of students. For example, we have found that our 2nd-grade CCSS materials are popular among middle schools. Relative pronouns, a 4th-grade CCSS concept, are often taught in high schools. Using the word stage, instead of grade level, reinforces the concept that each student will learn grammar at her or his own pace.

You can view more information about our Common Core State Standard alignment here. Additionally, you can find our activities based on their CCSS Grade Level alignment here.
