Common Core Language Arts 4 Today

Well, Carson –Dellosa has done it again!  I taught 2nd grade for years and used a daily review then. When I moved to kindergarten , I couldn’t find one that was worthwhile and then can common core… still couldn’t find one! Now I have! Common Core Language Arts 4 Today – Daily Skill Practice is it! In one simple book I have 40 weeks  of reviews and assessments! The quick and easy to read introduction explains how it is all set up. They even have a quick guide to “Building a Reading Environment” and writing strategies. Good ideas – most we all know, but never hurt to hear them again! Then there is the common core matrix! Oh, yes they did! They crossed-referenced all the standards and the weekly reviews! Ka-ching! One less thing we have to do! There are three questions for each day – four days on one page! On the back is the end of week assessment! This will save paper! Oh wait! Did I mention it is reproducible?? Now I am a little concerned that in the beginning the kids might have some trouble reading and following along, but… just like all things in kindergarten – it’s a teach and learn activity! J I’m thinking it would be nice to scan in and show with the projector on the big screen. We are always working on listening and following directions in the beginning of the year anyway. The weeks also follow the school year  - holidays in order – September/Fall, pumpkins, Thanksgiving, Christmas/Hanukkah, winter, Valentine’s, etc. It’s great – no thinking required! I mean – no planning required! Haha there is an answer key too – just in case it’s the end of the day and you don’t want to think! J I’m thinking this would be great to use for morning work or even as a start to guided reading groups.  This should be a great resource! One more thing – there is a math version too! Oh my – a shopping trip is in the future!  Way to go C-D!   I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson- Dellosa and I received this product free to try and review.
