It is one thing to read about the Common Core, but it can be a challenge to figure out where to begin.
Organizing for the Common Core Teachers Toolkit was designed to provide educators with the structure and tools to facilitate implementing Common Core Standards (CCSS) in their classroom.
For new teachers, the toolkit will help you and your students figure out what they should be able to do by the end of the year. You will be able to set up your files and planning notebook in an organized fashion to make the implementation process easier. For experienced teachers, you will be able to sort through your existing materials and file them according to the standards.

There are 5 Essential Components to the Toolkit:
There are 52 labels you can print on Avery 5160 sheets to organize your files. One type lists the main topic such as "Expository Writing" or “Revise and Edit". The matching label has the standard listed and students expectations.
Each CCSS has been unpacked into teachable objectives.The Tracking Forms are useful for keeping track of which materials or resources you have used to address each standard. It is also helpful for curriculum mapping or identifying gaps in your current program.
PROGRESS MONITORING FORMS:
It is important to be able to monitor how your students are doing with the objectives. Simply print a copy for each of your students and use your school’s evaluation codes to keep track of their mastery level.
26 "I CAN" CARDS:
Each standard has been written in kid-friendly language to explain the goal of the lesson. There are 26 cards included in the 4th grade toolkit.
The natural question on every teacher’s mind is, “What am I suppose to teach?” Each CCSS list was designed to be a handy resource to answer that question. Print and save the lists with your lesson planning materials for quick reference.
