Thanks for posting those links. We do mention Common Core all the time but do people outside of education have an understanding of what it is and what it means? I hadn't even thought of it. I think sometimes we (me) forget that just because people send their children to school that they have a full understanding of what we do and say in the classroom. How many parents have wondered but have never asked? Great resources! I will be snagging those for my parents page as well! :)

      That's a good point Heather. We used that word a ton last year with parents and only a few of them were brave enough to ask questions about the common core. I think if websites were posted with... more

      Thank you so much Heather! How many parents really understand the common core and what is expected? I think we as teachers need to do everything we can to help these parents!

      What a great idea! I never though about that. My parents came A LOT last year trying to get me to explain what Common Core was and what it meant for their child. Than you for those! I will definitely ... more

        Do you know where we could find these documents in Spanish?

          I'm not sure about Spanish documents. I would try to google it. If not there are web translators that I have used for report cards in the past. Do you have a large Hispanic population?
