Common Core Resources

Hello again darlings!  Our last day of school was Monday and while you may be thinking my hiatis from blogging was because of all the fun I was having this summer, think again... I was at a Common Core conference.  Yep, the first day of summer, I became the student.  I know, I am crazy, since I had a choice in the matter, but I am a big dork, and I like to get a head start on things.  Don't feel too bad for me.  I did get to go boating and fishing! 

So basically, I wanted to give you some resources for Common Core.  Please bare in mind that I still have two more days to attend of this conference, so I'll post about that later. I am not an expert by any means.    Click the pic to download my notes. 

Also check out these resources I found on the web.

Teaching Channel: videos of ideas to teach some of the more challenging Common Core

PTA Resources by grade level: Awesome printouts to give to your parents to help them understand the changes coming.  It was great for me too!

Common Core Video Series:  Professional development videos

Have a Happy Memorial Day and remember, FREEdom is not FREE!  Thanks to all our troops especially my guys in the 160th Night Stalkers!
