Are you familiar with the Common Core Standards?

I'll be attending a workshop tomorrow to go over these new standards and how to implement them....

If you are already using them or are going to be using them, I'd love to get your feedback!

  1. We just had a brief training on the standards. I am livid that Texas along with a handful of other states decided to create their own. Exactly how does that make any sense and how much money did we spend on people creating them and training others?!

  2. I've been reading them especially the math ones. I plan to integrate them along with my state standards and the NCTM standards next year.

  4. I live in Virginia and we are not adopting the standards. We have our own that were made several years ago that are very similar to the Common Core ones. We didn't make our own, we already had them. I'm on a vertical team for Language Arts and we look at both out state standards and the Common Core and they are similar. In fact, I think our state standards are more rigorous than the Common Core ones.

  5. I am attending training this Saturday regarding the CCSS for Nevada. I will have to post more once I know how they compare to what's already been established in my district. All I know is that I have to attend the trainings and come back to train the staff. EEEkkk!!! Sometimes teachers are the worst students!! :)

  6. The district began introducing the Common Core Standards during the fall. This spring, each grade level received training while students remained with resources teachers for a half day. During our training, we compared our Next Generation Standards with the Common Core. Have you been to www.corestandards.org? Great site!

  9. :/ My sate is one of the few that is not adopting them. :/ Although I know there is TONS of pressure. They may cave in a a year or two. I'll have to rely on you ladies to tell me all about them.

  10. Arizona is adopting them next year and we've had a couple of trainings on them. We've only gone over the math standards though - we were shocked at a few of the standards they took away from kindergarten - making patterns and creating graphs! How does that make any sense? Especially creating patterns, so important for future concepts. They are really focusing on number sense big time in kinder - they want the kids to know addition facts off the top of their head, timed test style. Pretty crazy. It will take some adjusting!

  11. We are also adopting them in Alabama. So far, no official training. Many teachers have started using them to teach this year. 1st grade math looks pretty similiar to what we were already teaching. Kindergarten math changed TOO MUCH in my opinion.

  12. We have adopted them too in my state but only K,1,2 will have to implement them for next year. We have had no training or anything on this. Would love to know more about it and what others are doing. I am a first grade teacher.

  13. The curriculum committee at my school is "unpacking the standards" (looking deeper into what students should know and be able to do according to the standards). We are going to be working toward creating new pacing guides for the standards. I hope we can all work together and share resources!

  14. My school has had several trainings to create a "crosswalk" between our state standards and common core. Our district is going live with common core next year for k-2.

  15. I'm a newbie to teaching this year. We are also adopting the Common Core Standards, too. This school year kindergarten is implementing the standards and next year 1-2 will be too. I am a first grade teacher and interested to see how our team works together to use our curriculum with the new standards. 12-13 school year will be adopting a new reading/math curriculum with the new standards in place.
