      The Common Core State Standards only include standards for math and english language arts, however the ELA standards include a focus on building knowledge through content rich nonfiction. What this means in practice is that elementary teachers can integrate ELA with other subjects like science, social studies, and art by having students read (or reading to them) content specific texts.
