Oh. My. Goodness.

Friday night I uploaded and blogged about  my K/1 Common Core Math pack.  I made it for my kindergarten team based on feedback from them, and didn’t really think many people would want it since it spanned two grades.  I was wrong. Just plain wrong.  I got lots of great, positive feedback both here and in my TpT store.  And then I had requests for a second grade common core math review pack.  I said I would oblige, but it would need to wait until spring break.  Who am I kidding?!?  People are asking!  So, of course I put off the laundry and the cleaning to get it done.  Plus, making it was so much more fun than cleaning would ever be!

I uploaded the full file and a 4 page sample in my TpT store. Teacher’s Notebook decided it didn’t want to work so I’ll get to that at another time. If you want to download the full thing you can do it here. If you want to download the free pages to try it out in your classroom, you can do it here.

Should I keep working on a few more grades?  Someone said they’d like 3rd and so I may do that.  I only work K-3 so I would have completely spanned it by then.  Are you interested in having something similar for E/LA?

As I was working on this today, someone mentioned to me that North Carolina has unpacked the standards.  I wasn’t sure what she meant but I Googled it.  I’ve found some awesome stuff on North Carolina’s site before and this just makes it even better.  Check out this site for everything Common Core. It’s awesome.  I’ve always said I’m going to move to North Carolina and I think this just made that fantasy worse.  Keep in mind that I’ve never been there so I really have just built these fantasies in my head.  Well, and Mr. Nicholas Sparks does a pretty good job of convincing me that I should go as well.

Ah, well, I’m off to dream about North Carolina….
