Excellent Common Core Website

My principal shared this fabulous website with me the other day and I found
it incredibly helpful. Now, I would like to share it with you. 

The Florida Department of Education released the CCSS 
Professional Development Toolkits for English Language Arts
for grades K-5. The toolkits are available online and may be used 
by teachers as we explore our new curriculum and create our
English Language Arts lesson plans around the
new standards.

The English Language Arts Toolkits for grades K-5 include
student activities, teaching strategies, formative assessments and lesson
study materials. It is definitely a must see no matter where you teach!

You can visit this website by clicking on the image below.


I hope you find it as helpful as I have!
