Tennessee’s standards have kids learning some concepts in an earlier grade than their parents did. As a parent, you don’t need to be completely confident with the lesson to help your child with homework. 

Tip: Ask your children to explain concepts they’re working on – teaching someone else is a great way to learn. Because many assessments will ask students to show their work on some problems, you can help them prepare by asking them to show YOU how they got their math or English answer. Here’s a guide.
