Here are some sample Common Core State Standards for select grades:

English

Second grade: With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers.

Fifth grade: With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of two pages in a single sitting.

Eighth grade: Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.

Mathematics

Second grade: Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.

Fifth grade: Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ 1/5, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ 1/5 = 20 because 20 ‰ˆ 1/5 = 4.

Eighth grade: Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
