Good To Know

We'll help you help your kids with their homework!

 

Good To Know is a digital video series for adults that introduces the methods, vocabulary, and processes their child learns at school. These short, clear and fun videos will help to explain math topics that are taught in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Grade 1 Common Core curricula. The videos will help develop a conceptual understanding of how math practices build on previous knowledge and empower parents and caregivers to help their children learn foundational math skills!

What's our goal?
To equip parents and caregivers with the tools to provide positive and engaging guidance to their children with homework assignments and out-of-school learning.

 

We hear there's a community need...
As our community transitions to the Common Core Standards for Learning, WSKG continues to serve students and teachers. However, another essential audience has emerged among education reform: parents and caregivers. In our interaction with these audiences at community events and from feedback provided by classroom teachers, the need for easily accessible and unintimidating math help at home is clear. Good To Know is our response to this need. We hope you like it!

Good To Know is a collaborative project between WSKG and local educators. Thank you to the twelve local teachers who helped us craft the series!
