Our school implemented common core in kindergarten this past year and I LOVED it! I truly think it has made such a difference in the way my students think about their learning. They are really able to explain their thinking and reasoning, both in language arts and math. I also love that the standards focus on really getting deep into a few key areas rather than trying to cover so many things that the kids never really have a chance to do any deep thinking. For example, in kindergarten the focus is on number sense in math (no more money, time, etc. that were only covered a *little* bit). Next year, our first grade will begin implementing the standards. Have you taught the common core standards yet? How do you feel about them? I would love to hear your comments!
