Common Core Standards
Wonderland follows the Common Core standards adopted by the State of California. The English and Math standards enrich our students’ learning by delving deeper with content that is richer and more relevant to their lives. Common Core standards focus on key knowledge and skills, including communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. Our Writer’s Workshop and our Reader’s Workshop align with the standards and have been a part of our curriculum well before the standards were adopted. We are piloting several math programs now with an eye to adopting one to implement for the 2015-16 school year.
