The Common Core and YOU!



Our district has taken on the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts FULL ON! 
Whoo-eeee! It's a great core, but it's a bit lot different from what we are used to and it's a lot of work. I'm sure once we all get used to it they'll change it. Am I right? ;)

We are very lucky to have a district who has laid out each part of the CCSS and made a unit/scope and sequence to go along with it. They've made a lesson for every.part.of.the.core!!! I don't follow it directly, but I pull from it every now and then. I'm really particular about things {some might call it OCD}. You can find all of this on my district's website {here} and then just click on your grade.

Hopefully each month I can feature something new I've done with my kiddos that relate to the CCSS's and I'll offer freebies and tips for you!


The next few things I've made relate to "Reading Standards For Literature"
 in the CCSS.





Just added:





"How" is also added on the new download! :)




When we read to each other in partners, we use these little check marks to remember our questions we ask to check for understanding.


This is your beginning, middle, end graphic organizer.  You just fold it in half and cut on the dotted lines. Then, you can color a picture or write something that happened under the beginning flap, middle flap, and end flap.









Check back for ideas on the new CCSS Writing standards! I'll be posting some new ideas.





Here's a way you can keep track of what standard you teach and when.  Click the picture to see more! 



There are two types of checklists. These are the data checklists:




These are perfect for report cards, RtI, data for PLCs, or to give you detailed information for your small group work.

Click each picture:

   

   



   

  

The best part about these checklists is that they are editable! You will be able to enter your students' names on the first document, and it will automatically fill in their names on EVERY page! 
If you would like to purchase the ELA or MATH checklists separately, you can find them here:
K-2 




We also have THESE checklists available! These make it so you can "check off" things as you teach them so you can track what/when you've taught.



Click each picture to check them out!

       

     

     



Here's an example of how these checklists can help you organize and teach the Common Core. Once you teach the standard, you "check it off" or put a date on it:

Rachelle! You are just too dog gone good! I LOVE this!! We are implementing the common core this year in both math and language arts. There have been a ton of changes this year... not only are we implementing the common core, we also adopted a new math series (it is common core aligned for the most part..which helps!), and we have a new evaluation system. I really like that you all have some sort of pacing guide to go by. I wish we had something more for language arts so I could be sure that I am covering what needs to be covered. Thanks so much for sharing the awesome freebies! Love them!

Love, check. Download, check. Copies done on monday and into my buckets for the next weeks lessons. Seriously I love it when you plan for me! Wahoo! You rock, as usual!

p.s. Can't wait until you see our cute bulletin boards that we did with your spider stuff from the Halloween unit. We will post them next week. My kiddos officially LOVE spiders...well, like a lot.

Natalie Kay said...

We have not implemented it yet. This year our district formed a training committee of teachers and then next year they will train us.

I'll admit - I'm scared for all the changes coming my way!

Erica Bohrer said...

We are supposed to be using them but our district has not provided training. I have been working with them since I was on our district's Balanced Literacy Committee last year. I like the idea of all the states using the same standards.
Thanks for sharing your resources!

Miss Squirrels said...

I am in TN and we are "easing" into them in Math and Science. The CCS are there- and we have deconstructed the math standards to get to the clear target:) I used to have a "clear target"- but they keep moving it!! lol.... we will be "full-on CCSS" for EVERYTHING next year!!

Mrs. Nunley said...

Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much for the freebies. I recently purchased your Being a Guided Reading Wizard pack. Love, Love, Love it!! My kids think that Roll a Question is AWESOME (and so do I)! These freebies will fit in perfectly with my small group and work station work! Thank you!!

The Whity Wife said...

CCSS is crazy! Our district is beginning to implement it- KG is doing it full out this year, and next year we will be doing it full out. Right now we are doing bits of it, and deconstructing each standard, creating assessments, and building them back together around our district's curriculum (which btw- they don't match) I am so frustrated by the CCSS- and so thankful to have someone who has already been there to help me out!!

Jacki Rogers said...

I love these! Thanks for sharing!

Jean Thompson said...

Our district has implemented CSS in grades K-2 AND the new Tennessee Teacher Evaluation and Assessment Model AND Math In Focus (Singapore Approach) AND our school in going through the School Improvement Plan this year. Can you say stress level?
Anything we can find to help us out is wonderful!

Alison Whiteley said...

This year all my lessons have to align with CCSS. Our distirct curriculum was rewritten to reflect CCSS. I have created a couple of alignmnet posters for K-2 math and Reading Foundationial Skills. There are posted on my blog toad-allyexceptionallearners.blogspot.com/.

Thanks for sharing your ideas for common core. Our district began the Math Common Core this year and they are beginning to put together committees for the Reading Common Core and so I have a feeling by next year we'll have reading too. I've enjoyed the math so far which makes me anxious to see how the reading will go HOWEVER, I'm worried it will overwhelm me as the reading ones look a bit more intense on what 2nd graders should be able to do!

Lauren Morse said...

Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas. This would make a great linky party-- resources for the common core.

We had optional training this summer to start looking at the math standards. My first grade team decided to "revamp" our whole math curriculum to fit the new changes. There were a few areas that were different, but surprisingly we were teaching most of it before. It hasn't been too bad of a change (probably because we decided to do it, before we were forced to do it!). I think reading changes will come next year.

beautiful job!! thanks!!

Annie said...

LOVE that Georgia is going to Common Core Standards. I came from Texas and we had that already (Texas version of course) and I was shocked at how LOW Georgia standards were. This will give us a better way to get our kiddos where they need to be since some teachers will NOT push their students and will just teach the bare minimum (you know this is sad but true.) Now our kids can be as high as other states.

Thanks for the wonderful freebies as well. Keep up the terrific work!

Louise Morgan said...

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing - they are printed and ready for the laminator! They have also been "pinned"!

Katie said...

You have a great attitude about the change!

The thing that is stressing out my district is that we are being tested on our old standards, but we are expected to teach the CC!

We are also expected to follow the district published lesson plans, which really aren't that good.

sigh!

Sallie Neal said...

This is a fantastic creation. Thanks Rachelle! Our school is a Literacy First school and the signal words are very important. We are also merging into Common Core in the next year or so, and I'm trying to be a little "ahead" by working on something of the common core standards that have changed from our state standards. Thanks again!

We are starting our training this month. There are so many questions we have and very few answers. We are so worried about it because we have heard that it takes a LOT of time to do this. I am worried!

I teach in Athens, GA. We will be implementing Common Core next year. Hopefully your posts will help the transition go a little smoother for me! Thanks for sharing!

Puddiesmom said...

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful ideas for the Common Core Standards. My district will be embracing the standards within the next year or two. I will definitely be ready. Thank you again.

Ann said...

I teach first grade in Louisiana and we are starting the Common Core in our district next year in Kindergarten and First Grade only. It seems to align a lot with our current GLEs, so I hope it will be a fairly easy transition. Thanks for the great ideas!!

Melissa said...

I teach in Florida and we will be implementing Common Core next year in K&1. Information from our district isn't always timely, so really appreciate your posts.

kamagra said...

Thanks for sharing Common Core this would help us. Hoping I can update on this.

Jennifer K. said...

Thanks for sharing, this will be helpful! My district is going 100% Core for K, 1st and 2nd next year. This worries me since pre-K is not mandatory here, so our kinders come to us with almost 0 skills a lot of time. I hope I can teach everything I need to and still make K a fun place to be!
