San Diego Unified School District (here's the District's CCSS website--lots of resources!
 
Georgia Units: (even though the state has actually pulled out of CCSS, the resources they created are AMAZING!  Here's their math website.)
 
North Carolina Unit: (they have a great website for the Public Schools of North Carolina with lots of support resources.)
 
University of Texas Scope: (they have a great website called Mathematics Common Core Toolbox--check it out!)
 
EngageNY Kindergarten math resources.  This seems to be everyone's gold standard for CCSS materials.   
 
 
grumpy cat  
 
Bridges in Mathematics: (the Bridges in Mathematics website)
 
This is cool:  math standards written in kid-friendly language: (From the Ontario-Montclair School District)
 
Kindergarten Flip Book (FlipBooks are meant to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. They provide only a sample of instructional strategies and examples.)
 
 
Math Vocabulary from Granite School District in Utah 
 
Compare the CCSS to the current state standards: (from Tulare County Office of Ed.  A great website for resources, too!)
 
Howard County Public School System Common Core Assessments.  VERY well designed assessments for each standard.  Check them out!
 
K-2 Math Projects from K-5 Teaching Resources.  It includes a CCSS correlation chart at the beginning of the document to tell you which activities fulfill which standards. Really great resource! Worth the $10 download fee.
 
Videos explaining Kindergarten standards from Southeast Comprehensive Center.  Really interesting! 
 
"I Can Statements" for each standard from Dr. Bobb Darnell on his website called Achievement Strategies, Inc.  Check them out!
