Kindergarten and Common Core

       Kindergarteners...aren't they just the cutest! They are constantly saying the funniest things. It's true kids really do say the cutest things. I love my job. :) Who else gets to spend their day laughing and learning?! Even though they are the cutest it can be overwhelming to think that you are teaching them what they need to know today in order to get them to where they need to be when they enter 1st grade. 
 As I'm sure most of you know Common Core State Standards are here. When it came however I had to look at what I was doing and readjust to make sure I was aligning my speech therapy sessions along with the common core. That's when I decided to go through each common core standard by grade and pick out the goals that aligned with what a speech therapist does on a daily basis. For more on that click here. Next I took those standards and made an activity for each standard by grade level. So here is what I have created for my Kindergarteners and their common core  goals.

Kindergartener Common Core Activities:
