Quarter 1 Common Core ELA & Math

Forsyth County, GA posted a link to the pacing guide they have created for next school year. I printed it out and took it home to look it over and start planning for next August. I know, I know. I'm working on the first day of summer vacation, but I need to wrap my brain around the new standards and how they will mesh together with science and social studies. Here is what I created for quarter 1 English/Language Arts. (Hopefully, the following quarters won't be so time consuming!) Everything in black type was provided by the county or the Common Core Standards website. Everything in blue type is something of my own that I added.

Here is what I created for quarter 1 math common core content.

  1. Are you planning on posting one of these for the rest of the quarters? This was VERY helpful. I am in Common Core training as we speak. This is our state's first year of Common Core and we are having a hard time switching. Thanks for the information! :)

    1. I didn't continue to make these because our county came through with materials for math and reading. I'm glad you liked it though! It might be a summer project for 2013 to finish them up. There are some great Common Core resources on our Georgia DOE website for each different grade. https://www.georgiastandards.org/Common-Core/Pages/default.aspx

  2. I am a teacher in Gainesville City Schools but I live in Forsyth county! I love this and would love to also know if you already have access to a pacing guide for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Q?

    1. Carolyn, So sorry for not replying sooner! If you still need pacing guides, send me your school e-mail, I can send you the pacing guide that our grade-level created thus far. Forsyth County chose to allow teachers at individual schools to create their own common summative tests instead of creating common summatives at the county level for reading. We still use common county math summatives. So, once I started school, I found out that my thoughts for how I would pace my year, changed according to our new report card format and what the rest of the grade-level was able to agree upon.
