Common Core Classroom and Kids...

I would like to introduce to you two new blogs that I will be a shared author on.  Both are focusing on the new Common Core Standards.  One is for educators, and the others is for parents!  I am excited to  be apart of these blogs, because I am on the "Common Core Team" at my school.  Head over and check out my first post on introducing sight words! :)

Here is the first blog: 

This is a collaborative blog where teacher bloggers provide resources, ideas, and activities of how to implement Common Core Standards into the classroom.  This blog is for other educators to find grade appropriate activities and ideas that align directly to the new standards.

The second blog is: 

This is also a collaborative blog, but it is focused on providing parents with resources that they can practice at home with their children, to reinforce the Common Core Standards.

I hope you check out these new blogs, and I hope they can be helpful for you this summer when planning for the next year!  Also, when searching in the "labels" section on these blogs, all of the posts are search able by the grade level standard to help you find resources for YOU!

Here is the freebie that I posted over on Common Core Classrooms...Go and visit to pick it up! :)

I'll be posting about my Vegas trip soon!
