Common Core Resources

This is just a sampling of the common core resources I have found. I'll post more after I get caught up with a few more posts, but for now enjoy what I've found. Comment if you need something else or are looking for a particular resource...I love to hunt ;-)

One version of Kid friendly standards which may help parents to understand what the common core is targeting.
Another version of Kid friendly standards for Language Arts and Math. These take the standards and reword them  into I can statements.
Math common core resources divided by grade level and standard.
Love this resource! Has lessons and activities already uploaded for various standards
Activities, lessons, and ideas for grades K-3 English Language Arts and Math Common Core standards
There was a blog post(see screen shot above) on August 14, 2012 that was titled 8 Tech Tools for Common Core. When working on this blog post, I couldn't get their blog to load. Hopefully it was just a glitch tonight, so try it later. The post was really good.
Link for their curriculum is up at the top to search for lesson plans etc.
Scroll down to a link for free interactive and web 2.0 resources. The post goes through how to sign up for a free account to Classroom connect in order to have access to these activities and lesson. She is constantly updating, but not every standard for every grade has something yet(last time I looked). Take a look though, she may have what you are looking for! Great resource;-)
Common core ideas, make sure to check out more recent posts
Hope this gives you something to get started! As I said, more resources to come as soon as I get caught up on a few posts. Stay Tuned! Comment if you are looking for something particular and I'll be on the look out.
Thanks for reading!

Interactive White board(IWB) games

Okay...I've set myself a goal to finish uploading sites between now and this coming Wednesday. I will catch up, so look out for many new sites!!

Games for PK-3 to use with Smart Notebook

These interactive games will work with any interactive white board system(Smart, Promethean, Interwrite, E-beam).

Interactive Math games for all white board systems

IWB centers and others

Most of these will work on other boards besides just Smartboard

Says Smartboard, but games work on other interactive systems.

A little bit of everything

So I have about four weeks until school "officially" starts back. That means getting the classroom in order, finishing up all of those things I wanted to do/make/get ready over the summer, and anything else that I find time to do. So here is to trying to at least clear out all of my new sites still to post. Then I can update finally on all of the sites, I have found over the summer ;-). My hope/goal is that you find something you can take back and use this school year. Enjoy whatever time you have left and let's have left and let's have the best school year yet!
Blog with where to find a lot of free goodies!

The sample activities are worth the visit(especially the math ones).

Walks you through how to make sure you are selecting quality apps and what their purpose is

K-2 Teachers, printables galore!

I haven't checked out every link, but this looked like a great resource.

Loved the calendar time ideas in this blog for Kindergarten teachers or self contained special education teachers.

Again have not checked out every link, but the list looks very promising...2nd and 3rd may want to check it out as well for the manipulatives

Power points for just about everything!

Lots of resources, make sure to check on the web collection for curriculum based resources as well.

If you are a Kindergarten teacher, this is a site you want to make sure to check out!

A wonderful resource I recently found(It is free for teachers). I have not even begun to look through everything this site has to offer yet.

If you are a special education teacher, I suggest you check out this site. They also have a facebook page you can follow as well. If you have an Ipad that you use with students(or your own children), this site will tell you when apps are on sale or even better for free.

Technology resources for websites, apps, and interactive resources.

Comprehensive list for various sites

Stay Tuned....I will catch up my list before school starts back ;-) I have to, I have so many more to share with you. Please share this site with others, I'd love to have more followers! Thanks! ~Melissa
