It’s the teaching around the standards that counts!

What makes this book “that version of the standards you wish you had?” It’s the way Leslie Blauman translates each and every standard for reading, writing, speaking and listening, language, and foundational skills into the day-to-day “what you do.”

  • A glossary of academic language for each standard

This book has really helped me to break down the standards and understand the vocabulary for Common Core. Plus it is easy to use. The guide also has instructional lessons and access to online pdf files for thinking maps with each standard.
