Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten: Informational Text

The games and printable lessons at the LiteracyCenter.Net are designed to map to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Kindergarten. Since most websites list standards for K-12  together, we have decided to provide our parents and teachers with this compendium of Kindergarten CCSS for easy review and reference.
