Hi everyone. I'm looking for ideas or resources of where I can find what concepts kids should be learning at each grade level. I'm looking to improve and keep sharp what my kids have learned in school over the summer. Right now I feel like preschool for my youngest this year was a complete waste of money, and I'm worried my step daughter is behind. Can anyone point me in the right direction for this?

Look for "what your (insert grade) grader should know" it's core knowledge books! They are awesome. I know the kinder gardener one atleat is available in te system...:)

I second that opinion. They are great books. They not only tell you what your child should be learning, but also have the curriculum (songs, stories,etc) right there in the book.

Here is another book for K through 8.  It has a bunch of wishers though.
