I have found the free website www.curriculumcorner.com to be a very helpful free resource. It has many helpful ideas about using the common core in your classroom daily. One of my favorite things I found was a free printable check list for each grade level. They are called the " I Can" Common Core. There are checklists for students and teachers. They also have ideas for reading, math, writing, classroom management, seasonal, social studies and science using the common core in the classroom. Curriculum Corner also has several other helpful free printable items.
