NJ Kindergarten SLS for English Language Arts

Posted by Tiara Swinson on January 25, 2018

Following is the New Jersey State Learning Standards for English Language Arts for Kindergarten. 

This is the New Jersey English Language Arts State Learning Standard for Kindergarten. The standards are dense. If you want a simpler explanation on what your child should learn read our our Guide to Kindergarten instead.



The New Jersey Student Learning Standards define general, cross-disciplinary literacy expectations that must be met for students to be prepared to enter college and workforce training programs ready to succeed. The K–12 grade-specific standards define end-of-year expectations and a cumulative progression designed to enable students to meet college and career readiness expectations no later than the end of high school. Students advancing through the grades are expected to meet each year’s grade-specific standards, retain or further develop skills and understandings mastered in preceding grades, and work steadily toward meeting the more general expectations described by the standards.
