The Montessori Compass team is pleased to provide a sophisticated and comprehensive mapping to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Developed in collaboration with Tim Seldin and the Montessori Foundation team, this mapping is the first of its kind to demonstrate how a robust Montessori Scope & Sequence aligns to the defined Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics from Kindergarten through Grade 6.
The combination of the Common Core mapping and the Montessori Compass record keeping tool enables educators to remain focused on their Montessori classroom. They don’t have to waste valuable classroom work time worrying about an outside set of standards. Simply record the Montessori lesson into our system and the mapping takes place behind the scenes. Much like an insurance policy, should you be required to report on a child’s progress in the context of the Common Core, it is there when you need it.
We have made Kindergarten, Grade 3, and Grade 6 Common Core mapping available to be viewed online for free. Montessori Compass subscribers have access to all 7 years of the Common Core mapping, including Kindergarten through Grade 6.
