Welcome to Day 1 of Back to School Basics, a week long feature with giveaways and freebies! Today I'm featuring Common Core! Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard of Common Core State Standards. If not, you need to check out the official website here! Have you seen my Mastery Connect Widget on my sidebar? I have the same one for my phone too! You can pick up a widget for your blog here.

As a brief overview, forty-five states have agreed to
implement a set of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in an effort to ensure
equal learning from state to state. Common
Core is a set of curriculum standards, covering Language Arts and Math, based on
content students will need before entering college. The purpose is to provide a consistent, clear
understanding of what students are expected to learn. They’re also designed to reflect knowledge
and skills students will need for success in the real world. CCSS demands a more complex level of reading,
thinking, speaking, and writing for all students. As implementation continues
this year, many teachers are forced to prepare lessons and materials to align with
the Common Core Standards.

Teacher Pay Teachers is an open
marketplace for educators that offers many wonderful resources aligned with common
core. In a recent search, I found more
than 9,000 common core aligned products and almost 1,000 freebie files.

I’d like to feature a few
fabulous paid products…

In July 2011, Deanna Jump
featured her kid friendly Common Core Standards. This 200+ page document includes various
color combinations to meet different classroom needs.
I love the picture representation to align with each standard. Deanna has prepared files for Kindergarten and 1st Grade.

Common Core organization and accountability has never been so easy with Rachelle Smith's Common Core ELA Checklist and More. Keeping track of what standards are addressed, the dates of instruction, and percentage of class mastery has been simplified with this document. Rachelle has prepared Common Core Galore for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grades.

Rachelle's Example

For successful implementation of Core Standards, students will need vocabulary support for key concepts. Anna Brantley's Common Core and More Word Wall provides visual clues with more than 200 vocabulary cards for Language Arts and Math. Anna has prepared files for Kindergarten and 1st Grade.

Anna's Vocabulary Preview

In June 2011, Deedee Wills created Common Core Kindergarten Math Assessments to align with Core Standards. Assessing individual students can be time consuming and frustrating. Deedee has developed forms for efficiency with whole group assessing. Included are forms to record student assessments, a few oral assessments, and WONDERFUL whole group assessments.

Deedee's Assessment Preview

As a math lead, I'm always looking for new and creative ways to support curriculum resources to support the standards. Erica Bohrer, Kacey Mclendon, and Hadar Maor have products in which promote number sense with phenomenal work stations!

**I'm eager to use my fabulous Common Core files this school year! And now you will have an opportunity to win each of the above copies too!!! The requirement for entry is to follow all stores and can be done by clicking the product images above! One winner will be randomly selected on Saturday August 4th. You are only permitted to leave one comment. All other comments will be deleted. Please include an email!!!**

Are you still wanting more?!?! We are teachers and always want more. I want to spotlight a few fantastic freebies.

Rachelle Smith has featured a powerful post with great links and downloads. I love that her county has made available scope and sequence for Kindergarten through 6th grade.

Libby Allen, a dual education teacher in California has prepared Kindergarten Standard Checklist in Spanish! Hello, need I say more?!?

Marsha McGuire, from A Differentiated Kindergarten, has provided a differentiated work station for write the room.

1st Grade Hip Hip Hooray has offered Common Core Skill Ring Assessment Pack for a freebie download. I actually love using skills rings in my work stations and was intrigued when I saw her file on TpT!

**Do you have a Common Core "FREEBIE" product you'd like to feature? You are welcome to join my linky party here but it must be a direct link to a post on your blog or a FREEBIE product in your store! Please follow the rules, I hate having to remove links!!!**

I follow all the stores and man, oh man, do I need these! Our district expects fully implemented Common Core, but we've received no training and none of our current curriculum is aligned. So, we are all on our own trying to come up with meaningful activities that are aligned.... can you say ahhhhH!
