      We have downloaded, printed and read the CCSS. We met as grade levels a few times this year to look over them and to familiarize ourselves with the crosswalk documents to find what's new and what' s been removed from our grade level.

      We've found schools that are much farther along and "borrow" their work -especially ones who have unpacked the standards and rewritten in the I Can kid friendly statements. I believe it's Kentucky and North Dakota districts.

      On my own, I've created a few new units and have slowly added in some new skills this year.

      We are also having grade level meetings on SLO (Student Learning Targets)
