Kindergarten Common Core! (resources)

Like many others, my district has adopted the Common Core State Standards this year for Kindergarten!  I feel like CCSS is one of the latest and greatest buzz words because it is absolutely everywhere!  I want to share with you a few resources that I have come across to help me meet these standards.

First of all, have you checked out Charity Preston's latest resource? AWESOME!! She has put together a site for reading and for math that lists tons of free and paid products specific to each Common Core standard K-12!

Here is another fantastic resource for Common Core.  Read Tennessee breaks down each K-3 standard (reading and math) and offers multiple ideas for lessons, assessments, etc.  This is one you need to bookmark for sure!

I also came across this Kindergarten Common Core Workbook. 

It has over 600 pages of worksheets, activities, and posters for both ELA and Math for Kindergarten Common Core.  How wonderful to have resources for each skill all bound together in one workbook! I'm thinking this workbook will really come in handy for assessment purposes. You can download a 34 page free preview of the workbook here.

  7. Kindergarten is such a fun year for writing and reading progress. I wish I would have saved more samples from my years of teaching over the years as each kid has such a unique style!
