Our team just started our 4th unit for the Common Core. I think that teachers are life long learners and I am really enjoying all of the 'new' ways we are having to think/learn/teach. Teaching a whole new core has been a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Luckily, we have found the way we've been able to adapt a lot of the things we have taught in the past, but I know that I have stepped it up quite a bit. I feel like I have always had high expectations for my students, but this year I expect just that tiny pinch more. They can do it and so can I! I love thinking of standards in the "I can" form. Here are the I can statements for unit four. We would love to hear what you are doing with the Common Core!
