Resources for Parents
The Iowa Department of Education has produced the "Iowa Core Parent Guides" in English and Spanish. Here is a link to the guides: https://iowacore.gov/content/iowa-core-parent-guidesgu%C3%ADa-para-padres

There is one guide for each grade level Kindergarten through grade 8 and a guide for high school. Each guide is 4 pages and provides very useful information about the concepts and skills in Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills taught at that grade level.

Here is a link to the Characteristics of Effective Instruction that are part of the Iowa Core: https://iowacore.gov/content/characteristics-effective-instruction-0. Perry teachers work hard every day to ensure that these characteristics are present in every lesson.
