CCSS Cards



Happy Wednesday!

We have been using these great CCSS cards during our sessions this week to help plan out day to day lessons.  Many of you have asked where did we get these fabulous cards so Jackie asked that I post the link to the website.

The cards were created by Katherine McKnight.  She has developed cards for all grade levels for ELA, Literacy, and Math.  The link to her sight is below.  I had the pleasure of attending a workshop of Katherine's over the summer.  She is exceptional and has some great resources for teachers...check out her site!

Happy Shopping!

New CCSS Resources for Educators


Below are some newer resources that are being shared to help teachers continue their implementation of the CCSS. 

  • Share My Lesson 
    Developed by the American Federation of Teachers and TES Connect, Share My Lesson’s Common Core Information Center offers facts, figures, and tips about the CCSS and high-quality resources aligned to the standards across all subjects.
  • Common Core in Practice: Great Teachers Demonstrate Moving to Deeper Learning
    America Achieves developed a series of videos demonstrating effective instruction aligned to the Common Core. These five videos show how teachers are putting the new standards into practice in their classrooms and how enthusiastically their students are responding.
  • Student Achievement Partners
    Student Achievement Partners’ website offers a variety of free, high-quality materials to help educators align their instruction to the Common Core State Standards and raise student achievement. Resources include materials and guides aligned to the standards, essential actions for school and district leaders, professional development modules, and information on how educators can support the CCSS outside of the school.
  • EduCore
    Developed by ASCD, the EduCore tool provides secondary teachers with high-quality teaching and learning resources aligned to the CCSS.
  • NEA Common Core State Standards Toolkit
    The National Education Association’s Common Core Working Group produced this toolkit to ensure members have the knowledge and understanding necessary to prepare for the implementation of CCSS.
