Common Core Standards and Some Resources

My district, like many others, will be starting to implement the Common Core Standards this year.  I've started to explore them.  I'm realizing we won't be able to follow our reading or our math programs quite as much as we used to.  Personally, that makes me quite happy, as I wasn't thrilled with either program.  I see strengths to the programs, but I also see the weaknesses.

I have been searching the web this summer, exploring all the Common Core materials I could find.  I bought the book Common Core Curriculum Maps for English Language Arts, which some bloggers of us will be studying in August.

I recently found THIS from Have Fun Teaching.  There are page sized posters for every standard, both English and Math, for K - 5.  Check it out!

If you're a Pinterest fan, I have a Common Core Pinterest board.

I'm also on a few cooperative boards including:

The latter board is connect to these blogs. (of which I am a contributor)  Be sure to check them out!

Common Core Classrooms

Common Core Kids

And, of course, there's the official Common Core website!  

I'll keep looking for more Common Core resources and sharing them.  Do you know of any good resources for the Common Core Standards?

  3. In Australia they have also introduced a new National Curriculum from P-12. Love your idea of the Common Core Pinterest board, and if you don't mind, would like to start up the same idea for the C2C Curriculum - it is a super idea!!!
