Common Core Assessment

I am dreaming Common Core. That is just wrong on so many levels. Especially since I read Fifty Shades of Grey recently. WOW, that was an eye opener. BIG mistake to read an erotic book while my husband was out of town. HUGE. I was super happy to see him when he got home. :-) Am I over-sharing? My cheeks are pink just typing this.  

Anyway, what kind of lame brain focuses on the Common Core over a Red Room fantasy??  One that has sat through 8 days of training, perhaps?
One of the shifts in the Common Core is the idea that learning will be proven through student explanation. It seems to me that many of these standards will best be assessed through observation. To keep myself organized, I made checklists for each strand (ELA) and domain (math.) 
One set has each standard listed across the top. 
The second set has the cluster headings and space to write in the activity, skill, etc. Many districts break their report card down into similar headings so I thought this would be helpful.
I plan to put one set on a clipboard for me to jot down quick formative assessments. My district uses 3=at grade level standard, 2=approaching standard, and 1=below standard but you could easily use +, ✓, − or your own system.
I plan to hole-punch another set for my grade book to record summative assessments.

I was also thinking these checklists would help me form intervention groups.  As I observe students struggling, I can quickly highlight the standard on their names and voila, small group formed!
 
     As I familiarize myself with these new standards, I thought it also might help to check off each standard as I teach it. This will ensure I hit all of them throughout the year and will illustrate which standards need more attention.

 If you think this might be helpful, click {HERE} to visit my TpT store. 
Would you like to win a FREE copy? Just leave a comment below about anything {Common Core, the kinky book, let me know that you pinned this, a question you have for me, something else you'd like to see me make,  ANYTHING just talk to me peeps} and I'll pick a winner as I sit attentively in day 9 of training tomorrow. ;-)

Anyone interested in me making one of these packs for a different grade level?

  3. I have been sitting in training for the past two days. I am on overload as well. I think that the phrase using the text or using the illustration explain... will be the only thing coming out of my mouth.

  4. Well I haven't read Fifty Shades of Gray but I am very interested in the new Common Core Standards. I will be going to the States training in Orlando next week for 5 days. I also have a feeling my brain will be over loaded by the end of the day next Friday. I hope you continue to create more CCS blog topics and activities throughout the summer and next year.

  7. I wish we had trainings like that offered in my district... right now all they offer is a 2 hour training on the presentation that is on the common core website!!! :)
    Share any other findings!!
    I would love these checklists! I was planning on making some for myself ;)
    I already read all 3 books.... hahaha at your comment about them! :0

  10. I just started reading 50 Shades of Grey too and I think I turned 50 shades of red reading it lol. Glad others feel the same way it's an erotic read. Blush! Back to Common Core! I'm so happy that you posted this because I need something to organize my information overload! Thank you I will be using this next year!

  15. Interesting you should mention Fifty shades of Grey, a public radio station I listened to today mentioned that book as a great Summer read!
    I am also jumping into the trenches of CC. It will interesting when the Science CC just published.

  16. What a fantastic resource! We don't have any sort of training, so implementing the standards is sort of up to us to figure out.
    I am thinking about diving into the trilogy. After your comments about it, I might have to try it out!

  20. Common Core is at the forefront of my thinking as I served on the first grade committee to disaggregate (unpack) the ELA and Math standards for our state (South Dakota). I still have several days this summer and next summer to finish up the training. These would be great to add to my growing file names "Common Core."

  22. ROTFLMAO I have read the trilogy and my 10 yo was constantly asking me what I was reading and I kept brushing him off saying it was about a married couple. Then there was a Nightline commmercial and my son yelled, "mom that's the book you are reading" I just about died. That was a few weeks ago. The other day I was reading one of the books and he was like. "You reading 50 shades mom" I do not know what he has heard about these books, but I give him the evil eye every time he starts questioning me about them. LOL

  23. I can't stop laughing after reading your post! I'm a dork with all things CCSS and yet I feel like a have a second life when reading my Fifty on my Kindle!!! Lol At least I started reading it while my husband and I were on our first vaca away since our five year old was born....let's just say "Whatever happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!" :-) literally.

  24. This is a fantastic resource! I wish my district gave us as much training as yours on the common core, when I taught second, I had to teach the rest of the second grade teachers all about the common core, and all the training I had was via reading the standards and blogs! Again, awesome job!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Since you are 8 days into training, have they said why there are 2 groups of states with Common Core Standards (PARCC and I forget the other assessment)? My school just has its 'toe in the water' as far as common core and it is all confusing to me because it still seems like states are still developing their own standards. Hope that makes sense. Good luck with day 9. I'm sure I'll feel your pain...eventually.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love the checklists. I teach first grade and we are slowly implementing Common Core this year. This would be an excellent tool to have!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've sat through quite a few trainings myself and the one thing no one seems to answer is my question about how assessments will look. Our state seems to have a pattern with "great ideas followed by very little details" This resource is a wonderful idea and I'm glad to see tips/info on assssments by fellow bloggers. The idea of a standard checklist has also crossed my mind- thank you for sharing your work!

  46. WOW, this is perfect! I was trained in Common Core last year and our lesson plans had to reflect the changes this year. I was lucky enough to be chosen for a state project making formative assessments for ELA K-5 testing, so I even get to see Common Core when I am not at school!
    Regarding Mr. Grey, there are no words... so laters baby!

  47. My district adopted the Common Core standards last year. They have set up a pacing guide for us that is divided into four and a half week segments. After the end of each segment we have our students take reading and math multiple choice tests to assess that set of standards. After all that LOL I would like to know if you are still using the Whole Brain Model for classroom management. I have recently discovered it and can't wait to implement it into my room next year.

    Hopefully the Sandman will help you switch your dreams from Common Core to something more fun!

  49. I really really want to read 50 Shades of Grey, but just don't have the time right now, I know I know, such a whimpy excuse....but my son is in travel baseball right now and it seems like we are on the go every flipping minute and my daughter is in gymnastics...and being a single mom, I try to do it all, and you know how some days its just TOO MUCH! Well summer seems to be one of those days....We just got out of school on June 7 and I already had to go back today for a retention meeting with a parent that is trying to fight me on it. UGH.... She decided NOT to come to the first 2 meetings we had on her child and now that school is out, she decided it wasn't a good idea for her daughter to be retained. Seriously? Now that I think about it, maybe reading 50 shades would take my mind off of everything else. Hmm...i might just have to go pick me up a copy tomorrow!

    I'd love the common core stuff. My principal and our superintendent wants us to get together over the summer as a grade level and make commom assessments
    aligned with the common core. This checklist would be a great start for us. Then they wants us to get together with other grade levels in our surrounding districts to all have common core assessments. REALLY? I can't even imagine how that meeting will go. It'll be hard enough with my own grade level.

    Anyways, I hope you enjoy your training! At least you will have some comments to read through to keep you entertained. Have a great day!

What a year!I am glad today is our last day (I will miss my firsties) and am looking forward to having some down time with my colleagues afterschool. These checklists would be very helpful as I reorganize this summer. I also hope to read 50 shades this summer. I would love a copy. Thank you for sharing.

  65. I would LOVE this for 3rd grade. I was talking with a colleague about having a standards checklist and comments page to be able to send home with report cards so parents can really see what the grades mean. It would also help to create flexible groups for intervention time. I am even pondering purchasing the first grade set to be able to quickly make a third grade set.

I teach 3 different grades in reading so I would have to have 1 for each grade. Keep your chin up while at training. Maybe you could share what your district is telling you with all of us, so that we can compare.

  103. oh Jenn,
    I can't stop reading about fifty shades...although I don't really like either character, but alas I can't stop...just finished book 2 and I'm trying to decide if I'm going to continue with bk 3. DANG cliffhangers.
    anyway...instead of buying the book I've looking around the web for school stuff...that is wrong too!!! Hope your vacation is coming soon!! June

  107. This is a great concept and the clip art is great! Is this written in Word. I would like to put kindergarten core standards on the labels?
