Common Core Standards and Apps

Developers, do you notice any relationships between your app, and the learning goals laid out in the Common Core State Standards? Here is what one of our developers discovered:

From developer of ==> Brush of Truth

Approximate Grade Level(s): 3-6 |  Language Arts

Examples of standards this app could help instigate…

W.3 – Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.

W.6 – With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.

SL.4 Describe people, place, things, and events with relevant details, expressing ideas and feelings clearly.

Teachers, what do you think? For a mobile reference of the standards, check out the Common Core App, free to download.
