Curriculum at a Glance (K-6)
Writing Framework

The purpose of these essential standards is to guide teachers as they plan learning objectives and develop grade-level curricula that align with and support Colorado Model Content Standards. These standards are meant to reinforce instruction in a way that will be consistent and will create articulation of skills. Skills listed should be mastered at the grade-level where they appear. Not every skill listed will be tested on CSAP, but all skills listed are considered essential learnings in Poudre School District. For example, cursive handwriting is not required on CSAP tests, yet it is a skill that should be taught to mastery in the third grade.
