Who determined which Common Core standards aligned to the worksheets?
This summer we hired three in-house Common Core Specialists to help us with this project. All three are full-time elementary school teachers who have participated in extensive Common Core State Standards training. They've reviewed each and every one of our printable worksheets, and determined which Common Core Standards (if any) align with each activity. It was a big project because our site has several thousand printable worksheets.
Do all of your worksheets align to the Common Core?
Most do, but not all of them. When no connection to the Common Core standards are found for a given worksheet, the apple core icon will not appear.
Do I need to be a member to view the Common Core Standards associated with a worksheet?
No, you do not need to be a member and you do not need to be logged in. Anyone can view Common Core standards.
Will you be changing worksheets that do not meet the Common Core Standards?
At this time, we have no plans to change existing worksheets.
We realize that there are many useful learning tools on our site that do not clearly align to the common core, and we're keeping them as-is. The worksheets will continue to exist on our site, but they will not have the apple core icon pictured below the description.
So don't worry, your favorite worksheets will not disappear or change.
Can I view a list of all of the worksheets that align with a particular standard?
Not yet, but we'll be working on that feature in the near future.
