CK puts knowledge at the heart of learning

A Special Note to Schools – Please feel free to share this communication with your parents and students.


With each passing day, we continue to hear from teachers and parents looking for resources and guidance to address students’ educational needs at home.  Although we offer many instructional materials for free download, many parents have asked if they can purchase print materials, or if there are other resources available. The answer to both questions is YES!

Recognizing that parents are often not formally trained teachers, we compiled materials lists, at each grade-level, which link to resources that we believe may be adapted for use at home.


What Materials Do We Recommend for Use at Home by Parents?

    Hi, I’m from Australia. Dissatisfied with my countries skills-oriented curriculum, I have been using Core Knowledge to supplement my children’s education. I own What Your First Grader Needs to Know. I’m reluctant to buy more because quite a lot of the content is US centric. Have you considered an international edition?

      I would love this consideration as well, as the leader of an International school in the US. Our Chinese, Spanish, and French teachers have begun to work on this on their own and we would love a collaboration of World Core Knowledge.

    I, too, would love the opportunity to have things like these resources above at my fingertips like those who are covered by the content areas in the materials above. But unfortunately, I am a Physical Education teacher, and my subject matter is not a part of your curriculum. It doesn’t mean that the above resources aren’t useful, but they are of no service to me. However, there are a plethora of internet-based teaching services which I feel very comfortable utilizing that have assisted me in my dictation of a remote P.E. curriculum.
