While Alaska has not officially adopted common core, a high majority of their standards are almost exactly like the common core standards. Our district is currently going through a change when it comes to our math program at the Kindergarten level.
To help our Kindergarten teachers (and other Kindergarten teachers throughout the country) find activities, songs, games, and lesson plans that are aligned to the common core standards; I compiled a list of resources that can be found online and the standard that they cover.
