Is there a free online resource for reviewing elementary school curriculum for California? Any homework help sites with core concepts & how to teach?
I've asked the teacher for more info about how she is teaching the math and reading concepts in class, and to provide better quality worksheets (that have clearer explanations of the assignment), to no avail. Also, in the parent-teacher conference, she said that homework assignments are a review of a previous week's lesson and the child should already know the lesson, that the homework is really just reinforcing concepts, not teaching them. But I'm finding that in some cases, my daughter doesn't recall all of the information the teacher taught in class, and in other cases, my way of solving the problem is different than the teacher's way of teaching how to solve the problem (which leads to "But that's not how Ms. X said to do it!" and "I don't get it!").
Is there a free online resource I can turn to to review curriculum concepts and methodology for elementary school in California? Or do you have any other tips for explaining reading and math concepts while helping a child with homework? Thanks for any suggestions you can offer!
