My First Giveaway: A Carson-Dellosa Common Core State Standards Kit!

I am very excited Carson-Dellosa contacted me to check out their middle school common core state standards kit.  The kit came the week before school started so I was able to show it off to all the math teachers when we came back to school! 

  The kit came with dividers to helps keep the standards grouped together by type of math concepts.  I really like that the strips have the standard language on one side and student friendly language on the other.

I was found an old pocket chart I purchased YEARS ago from the Target dollar bins that I never used and now have my standards nicely displayed on the front board for everyone to see :)


This is a great kit for teachers who are required to post the state standards on a daily basis.  What a great short cut to not only have the state standards but also student friendly standards posted daily! 



I teach CMP and the first book only had one state standard that fit with the mathematical concepts so my chart seems a little empty.  The next two books that will cover the Ratio and Proportion standards so the chart will be more exciting.  My principal does not require that I state the standards being taught everyday so I plan to change my standards for each book (about once a month).  The only issue I see with the kit is the font size of the standards.  Students would not be able to see these standards from their seats unless they are right up front.

If you are interested on getting your hands on your own Carson-Dellosa common core state standard kit it is your lucky day! Carson-Dellosa has graciously allowed me to host a middle school grades kit - $19.99 value!  You may choose a Math or Language Arts kit for grades 6, 7, or 8!  You can enter by following my blog and leaving a comment including your email address and grade level/content area kit you would like if you are the winner! The contest begins Sunday, September 15 and ends Sunday, September 29.  I will announce the winner Monday, September 30th!

Good Luck!

  6. I'm doing my student teaching this year and I am being thrown head first into common core, so it would be nice to have a 6th grade math kit to fall back on when I'm feeling kind of lost.
