Parent Guides with Extra Practice

Core Connections, Courses 1-3

There is one comprehensive Parent Guide with Extra Practice available for Core Connections, Courses 1-3. The authors decided to provide parents and students with a comprehensive resource that includes the concepts and skills required in all three grades. Use the guide for assistance with current course topics as well for review and practice with topics from previous courses. However, for your convenience, we have also posted the parts of the comprehensive Parent Guide for each course as separate files.

PDF Files: for each course
To access just the chapters from the Parent Guide for the course that your child is taking, download that file from the list below.

PDF Files: for the three-course version
In the comprehensive Courses 1-3 version of the Parent Guide there are five broad strands that are used to organize the topics in all three courses. Use the table of contents by strand to view all topics. There are also separate tables of contents by course that match the chapters and lessons with their location in the Parent Guide.

To use the three-course version of the Parent Guide, begin by using the table of contents for your student's course to locate a specific topic from the textbook. Determine the page number of the topic that you want, then download the topic that includes that page number.
