Great question! This is something we've been actively working on at my school for the past year. One of the things that have really informed our work is to start with the standards (we are using common core) and work backwards. We are also sharing exemplar pieces of work in each grade level, to create a consistent example of expected level of work as you move from K-8th grade. We've been sharing curriculum and aligning what we teach and when (e.g. many of us are now trained through the teachers college reading/writing project and use that curriculum as a baseline).
