Common Core Materials

By now, I hope you all know that we have created 12 workbooks full of common core activities, lessons, worksheets, and assessments. We have the 6 grade level workbooks from K-5. We also have the 6 grade level assessment workbooks from K-5. But, what if you don’t want to spend $20 on up to get some materials for your lessons? Everyone has their own teaching style, and maybe you don’t need a huge book of resources. Maybe you’re the person who likes to pick and choose what you get. You’re the build-your-own combo kinda person.

Well, we offer a good deal of our materials for sale on TeachersPayTeachers in individual lessons. Maybe you need a Main Ideas and Details skill lesson. It could be for your classroom, you might be tutoring, or maybe your kids at home need a little extra boost. You don’t need the whole workbook. You can get one lesson at a time, most for only a dollar or two! Pick and choose and get what the common core materials you need.

Common Core doesn’t have to be all heartache and headache! Yes, trying to come up with new lesson ideas or even re-aligning your favorite old lessons to the new sets of standards isn’t any fun, but there are resources out there that let you keep teaching without reinventing the wheel. We all have favorite lessons that we are GOING to teach because they make us happy, giving us that little corner of our educational world where we are happiest. Those ones we’re going to tweak and fix and justify with their alignment to standards. What about the rest of the day, the week, or the year? What common core lessons are you going to teach?

Common Core Lessons

We have ready-made frustration-free common core materials for 5 minutes or 50 minutes! We have developed a whole series of grade-level appropriate centers, worksheets, and activities. These can be your bell-ringers. These can be your supplementary materials. These could be your pre-and-post tests. These can be your differentiated instruction materials. You can fit them into your day. That’s the beauty of it.

Teach what you need to, but do it YOUR way. Don’t like a page? Don’t use it. Have ideas to extend the lessons and connect them to other subjects? Great! Do it how you need for your students.

Common Core Assessment Templates

Have Fun Teaching and Core Common Standard’s very own Velerion Damarke (the pen name of Andrew Frinkle), with some artistic help from HFT’s prez Mark Luchauer, has created a brand new common core assessment tool called Common Core Assessment Templates. We thought that this was a great companion tool that could be used in certain situations with our own Common Core Workbooks and Common Core Assessment Workbooks.

Before we start getting into the details on the new program, here’s the difference between this program and our own program: The Common Core Assessments have been developed specific to each grade level and each standard, while this workbook of blank testing templates is for any grade. So, while Core Common Standards’ program offers an assessment for each standard that you can grade, this one is more of a make-your-own assessment guidebook with TONS of blank templates to help you design tests of your own.

Featured inside Common Core Assessment Templates are 175 different templates, all BLANK test forms, so you can make them into any test for any level or any topic as needed. They are essentially blank test forms designed to suit just about every testing need, with graphic organizers, multiple choice, writing spaces, problem boxes… These are all color-coded categories of templates, but everything can still be printed in black and white with no content loss.  Templates are adaptable to any grade level. While templates are recommended most strongly for K-5, there are a lot that can be used in Middle and High School! Templates have been standardized to help students get used to the format. There is an Easy Scoring system from 1-10 on every page, and student names are obvious for fast grading. Each page has a box to put standards in. Here are more features:

175 TEMPLATES IN THESE CATEGORIES:

* Primary: writing letters, spelling, penmanship line forms…
* Writing: sentences, paragraphs, essays, letters…
* Language: cause and effect, word work, vocabulary, parts of speech, cause & effect, plot elements, chronology…
* Math: geometry, operations, time, measurement, fractions, inequalities…
* Graphic Organizers: venns, sorts, timelines, rating forms…
* Quizzing Templates:  Multiple Choice, True or False, Problem Boxes, Short Answer…
* Problem Boxes: A variety of forms from 4-10 problems for page, great for math…
* Matching: math definitions, pictures, words, in all kinds of combinations…

The brand new Common Core Assessment Templates are here! This handsome volume is 196 pages long, and can be bought via a digital download on TeachersPayTeachers.com or bought in a B&W version for $14.99 on Amazon and a full color version for $36.99 (color costs more to print).

Common Core Lesson Plans

Do you need to show that you are using the new Common Core Standards in your lesson plans? Look no further, because our workbook series has an activity and one or more worksheets for each standard. In addition to that, the standards are printed on every page, making it easy to add the standards to your lesson plan books, whether they are digital or hand-written. Use our activities to help fill out a lesson you already have planned, match the workbook lessons to the core materials your school provides, or use our materials as the centerpiece of a lesson series for each standard. The possibilities are endless!
