This blog is an easy portal to links having free lessons and downloads devoted to the teaching of the Common Core State Standards for 1st grade. Thanks to all bloggers and contributors for their generosity!

They love comments and it's an easy way to convey your thanks for all the hard work they put into lessons! Use at your own discretion as those who add the links are not necessarily moderated for content. If you believe that mismatched content is added under a standard, please post a comment to the author of this blog for consideration. Please be kind in your comments.
