Curriculum 2.0, the improved curriculum for the elementary grades, has been implemented in grades Kindergarten through 5 in all schools this year. As part of that rollout process, MCPS has redesigned the Parent Guides to the Curriculum for the elementary grades.
These guides provide parents with an overview of the grade-level program and explain what your child will be learning in art, mathematics, music, physical education, reading/language arts, science and social studies. In the Guide, you will find information that highlights the thinking and academic success skills along with the concepts and topics that are the focus for each marking period. The information in these guides will assist you in providing support for your child throughout the school year. All parents with students in grades K through 5 should have received a copy of the Guide from their child’s school. The guides are also available online in Adobe Acrobat PDF format.
