EduCore - Tools for Teaching the Common Core - ASCD has shared a FREE website that is full of a wide variety of resources to help users understand and implement Common Core Standards. This project was made possible by funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The information on this site ranges from introductory information on how the Common Core Standards came to be to planning and implementing the standards. The available resources include videos, print resources, templates for planning and implementing the Common Core Standards (including content area examples), rubrics, and real experiences shared from classrooms across America. Check it out whether you're a teacher, administrator or parent!

Google Lit. trips - Google Lit Trips are free downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. At each location along the journey there are placemarks with pop-up windows containing a variety of resources including relevant media, thought provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about “real world” references made in that particular portion of the story. The focus is on creating engaging and relevant literary experiences for students. I like to say Google Lit Trips “3-dimensionalize” the reading experience by placing readers “inside the story” traveling alongside the characters; looking through the windshield of that old jalopy in The Grapes of Wrath or waddling alongside Mr. and Mrs. Mallard’s duckling family in Make Way for Ducklings

KATM Math Flipcharts - The Common Core “FlipBooks” are a compilation of research, “unpacked” standards from many states, instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level. The intent is to show the connections to the Standards of Mathematical Practices for the content standards and to get detailed information at each level. You will have to scroll down page a little to find the flipcharts.
