Let's Explore the Common Core! {Linky Party}

Lil’ Country Kindergarten


While I've found most of the changes from our Grade Level Expectations to the Common Core State Standards to be very positive, the hardest part is rewriting our curriculum and developing new curriculum maps. However, that has been made so much easier by others who have shared the work their districts have already done. I have found a lot of different things that I like about each of the curriculum maps or pacing guides below. This will make it so much easier when we get back to school to begin developing our own curriculum and curriculum maps.

If you have a Common Core curriculum map or pacing guide that you are willing to share or would like to link up, please do so below. I'm sure that those of us who aren't finished would very much appreciate your contributions. :)

    1. Hi Lynne! I'm not sure if someone has created one for 1st grade. However, if you Google First Grade Common Core Curriculum Map or First Grade Common Core Pacing Guides, you can probably find a lot! That's where I started. Many of the links above had things for K-6. I hope this helps.

  3. I love this idea. I'm wondering exactly what Lynne asked. Do you know if anyone has started a linky like this one for first grade?

  6. You are brilliant! I teach in a private school; at this time, no one has suggested we look into the common core standards. However---!---mapping them out is one of my summer goals! Kindergarten will be prepared :-).

  7. Great Idea!! I want to link up but my map isn't going to be worked on until July! Once it is finished I will link it up. I love seeing what others are doing. Thanks for putting this together.
