First Grade and Kindergarten Common Core

I have FINALLY finished my First Grade Common Core Standards Set! It includes all of the math and language arts standards you need to post in your classroom! I love mine because they are so easy to change out and they are written in kid-friendly "I can" statements. You can snag your set here. I have also made a kindergarten set that is available here. I am planning on making a second and third grade set as well. This may not happen for a while because these take sooo long to make.

My First Post! (and first FREEBIES)

Hello! This is my first blog (and my first post) so please cut me some slack while I try to figure out what I am doing on here. =) I am currently in my first year of teaching kindergarten. Most of my kinders are higher than kindergarten level in all subject areas (thanks to their amazing preschool teachers and parents). This makes my classroom run a little differently than other kindergarten classrooms. (I, of course, still have some that need some extra help.) I teach at a very small private school in Nashville. I hope to share resources and products I have created myself as well as free things I have found from other educators. My classroom is about half the size of the average kindergarten classroom, so I also hope to share/collect ideas on how to organize such a small classroom.

I would like to share some free resources I have created and used in my own classroom. These are two different sets of hundreds charts to post in your classroom. You can get the chevron charts here and the black and white charts here. Included in each set is a plain hundreds chart, a chart for counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's. I have the black and white posted in my room (because I made them first) but I want to put the chevron ones up instead when I find the time.
