Organizing Your Common Core

My district is implementing Common Core gradually over the next two years. Some grade levels, like mine, are straddling the fence this year. One foot on the Common Core side, the other still on the state standards side. It makes it a bit tricky, trying to meet the current requirements while adding in the new ones. I'm finding the record-keeping the most difficult part. But take a look at this...

This site has handy little checklists for every grade level. Each one lists the Common Core standards with space to record when you taught, retaught, assessed, and reassessed. I especially like that the standards are just listed down the side. It's makes a nice little reference sheet that doesn't fill up a whole binder.

I'm hoping that by next year I will have figured out a better system and gotten myself a little more organized. Maybe an actual filing system instead of my current piling system.
