The Common Core State Standards can be a little intimidating at first glance. Once you get to the bare bones however, the standards can really help teachers focus on what students need and ensure that they are challenged. Digging through the jargon and background is quite a task, so I created a "User Friendly" version without all of the padding and extra information. This is an easy way to familiarize yourself with the standards and is great to use as a parent guide for those who have questions. (I hand it out at Open House and the parents love it.) I made it a little "cutsie" in the hopes that it would inform parents without overwhelming them. (Cute clipart makes anything less scary, don't you think?) This single user version is for use by one teacher to distribute to his/her classroom. A District-wide, multiple user version is also available in my store.
