So I completely apologize for swiping a post straight from another blogger. I was so excited to have a chance to get the Kindergarten Common Core Workbook for FREE, that I quite honestly didn't completely read the directions. I was really confused about how to write a review for the preview when I thought that I was getting the preview. I didn't realize that when you do the blog post you get the 600+ page book via email! I thought I was getting the preview for free, so I had no idea what to write a small description about because I looked over the specific part that says Download a Small Sample Click here. So I have felt terribly bad all day and decided that I wanted to do a repost with my thoughts on the workbook this time, since I did go back and find the sample and do it the correct way.
So with this being my first year implementing Common Core, I am always on the lookout for new ideas. If you are doing Common Core this is a resource you HAVE TO HAVE in your classroom! It has a wealth of activities and pages to use in your classroom to meet the common core standards. The Workbook retails for $39.99 so if you have a blog you can complete a post just like the one I am doing and get it for FREE. 631 pages of math and literacy activities.
The book is broken down into each of the common core strands. It gives you a sheet with each standard on it which is perfect if you have to post your standards like I do.
I love that it includes small stories with a few questions to ask your students. I can't wait to you some of them to challenge my high fliers right now. It includes tons of thinking maps. I love the question cards specific for particular authors: Eric Carle, Mo Willems, Robert Muncsh, Dr. Seuss, etc,
For math it has plenty of cards to show the different ways to show numbers. Addition and Subtraction problems, games, etc. My favorite is the butterfly positional cards. Students pick a card and tell where the butterfly is in relation to the other object in the picture.
Scrappin Doodles did the clip art.....need I say more:)
