 So much in schools, from Common Core, new state tests, laptops, and iPads in classrooms to new ways of teaching and learning. This online comprehensive guide, The Essential School Tools for K-5 from Common Sense Media will help you find the best teacher approved apps, games, and websites to support your child in each grade and the best advice to help you understand current trends in schools and how they affect your child.

Also while you are at Common Sense Media check out their blog just for parents- Parenting, Media and Everything In Between.  As a Common Sense Digital Citizenship Certified Educator I can testified to their wealth of timely advise, reviews, resources and tools!
