Common Core Checklists

WE HAVE UPDATED ALL CCSS MATERIALS!   You will find the new links for kindergarten – 3rd below.

Our common core standards checklists are just what you need to help you keep track of the standards taught in your classroom.  Use these to make sure you are addressing all that you need to teach throughout the course of the school year.   Keep track of when you have introduced, retaught and assessed each indicator.  The most important parts of the common core are the anchor standards that carry through from kindergarten to high school.  These have been included with each language arts checklist so that you don’t lose sight of your essential goals for teaching and learning.

***Please keep in mind that this checklist is more to be used as a system of checks and balances in your teaching for the year and not so much a “check off” sheet for these indicators to be checked and thought of as “done”.  You will be teaching so many of these concepts during your one-on-one conferencing each and every day.

      4th and 5th grade should be up by the end of the weekend. So sorry for the delay! We’re in our first few weeks of school too, so we’re really busy and getting back into the swing of the school year, BUT we’re still trying to get new things posted and out to you as soon as possible! Check back on next Monday and they should be posted and ready to go!
