Teacher Resources and Materials:

Files for All Grade Levels:  Basic CCSS Information

The actual document of the standards 
The Critical Areas came first, then they created these Major Clusters.  Use them to help design your school year.  Your students should have 100% mastery of the "green  bucket" items.
*Core Progressions--The Handbook of the Common Core math standards 
kids who exhibit fluency:
     -have a variety of strategies to solve problems
     -should have 100% mastery
     -kids need to have speed and accuracy with problems
Do you know what your grade level fluencies are??? 
Sort of an introduction document that summarizes the major areas for each grade level K-8.   A great way to see what the grade below you and the grade level above you are doing.
These are the big ideas of each grade level standards to help you plan your year. 
Use these progressions to see the progression of concepts as they articulate through the grade levels. 
These prompts are organized by the different types of problem types. 
Talks about focus, coherence, and rigor.
