Common Core & a Giveaway

The Common Core Standards have been adopted by almost every state now.  Many districts require teachers to post the standards.  Although I am not required to post the standards I'm currently teaching, I do now.  This is all thanks to Carson-Dellosa.  They asked me to try out their newest product, The Common Core Standards Kit.  I love it!  The first day I put it up, one of my sweet K-dkids asked what it was for.  I explained to my class that there is a long list of things kindergartners need to know how to do before going to first grade.  I then read them a few of the cards that were posted.  I keep the cards on the side with the "kid friendly" terms which Carson-Dellosa refer to as "I Can".  My kids loved that they could already do some of the items I had listed.  I was working on creating my own, but why- when it has already been done for me.

Why I Like This Kit 

  • The kits are available for grades K-5
  • It is organized in a box with divider tabs and color coded.
  • It has the Common Core language on one side and Kid Friendly language on the other.  
  • There is a blank template on-line to create your own.
  • Carson-Dellosa had a pocket chart designed to fit the cards.
  • It is a visual reminder of what I'm working on.
  • Great price $19.99

Whenever I have few minutes that I need to fill- you know those minutes when everyone's ready to go to lunch, but you still have five minutes, I refer to the chart to do a quick activity with my whole class.

I teach Pre K but this will serve me well in providing experiences to develop the prerequisite knowledge needed to master the requirements for Kindergarten.

This is amazing. I teach K and I have struggled writing the I can statements in kid friendly language. I would love to have this.
