Kindergarten Common Core

Have you ever heard the quote, "Everything I needed to learn about life I learned in Kindergarten?" Well tonight, I'm kind of hoping that same principal may apply when it comes to learning more about The Common Core Standards! I don't teach Kinder, but I do teach 1st. And there are always a handful of firsties that come to me who still need their fair share of review and reinforcement of their kinder skills before they're ready to dive head first into the new big first grade skills that we cover. Which is why when I saw so many of the Kindergarten bloggers I follow sharing this new Common Core resource, I knew I had to check it out. 

I was able to download a free sample of this Kindergarten Common Core workbook and instantly recognized the graphics of one of my favorite clip art designers- Scrappin Doodles! All the pages were very kid friendly and are designed to help teachers reinforce all of the Common Core Standards for Kindergarten. They take the guess work out by telling you exactly which standard each page is aligned with on the bottom of every page. There are over 600 pages in the book! They also have a workbook released for first grade that I was able to preview and found to be equally impressive. Grades 2-5 haven't been released- yet. But I'm eager to see the Second Grade version when it's released since I'm teaching a 1/2 combo class this year. You can check it out for yourself by clicking {HERE} and if you're a fellow blogger, check out how you can score a copy for your Common Core resource collection {HERE} I'm excited to share this resource with the Kinder teachers at my school since I know they, like me, can use all the Common Core helpers they can get their hands on!! :)


  1. I saw these the other day and showed them to my principal! I think he's going to buy them for us. The free preview is like 75 pages of awesome!

    You Might Be a First Grader...
