This iTunes U course is intended to give you ideas and resources for your Kindergarten ELA classroom. Curated by teachers and for teachers, each course is organized by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for your grade and content area. The resources listed are meant to be a jumping off point for you, not an end point. In line with the intentions of the CCSS, these courses are not a curriculum; rather, they offer ideas and materials to help you meet the goals and expectations of the standards. We believe that teachers know best what works in the classroom and, therefore, teachers designed these courses. Through a collaboration of Apple Distinguished Educators, members of the PARCC Educator Leader Cadre (ELCs), and ASCD educators, these courses are designed by those in the field working to improve student outcomes.
