My colleagues said she didn't know any difference in teaching common core so do most of us in the same grade level.
The answer to how the Commo nCore looks different than it used to depends somewhat on what state you teach in. The shifts, which can be viewed at SAP's website (http://www.achievethecore.org/getting-started-common-core/implementing-practice-shifts/), are the best way to understand the changes. I can give you some real-world examples from my colleagues' primary classrooms. In math they are no longer jumping around from one thing to another, They are spending significant time focused on the major work of the grade level, which is addition and subtraction at K-2. They have time to make sure they teach it deeply and students understand it. In ELA, they are doing more integration with science and social studies topics, helping students use nonfiction text to gain knowledge. They are also more intentional about asking text dependent questions during read aloud, and using complex text with guided reading groups.

The classrooms should look like any other class with engaged students who are working towards a standard that they successfully have to achieve.
You may also want to take a look at the Instructional Practice Guides (http://www.achievethecore.org/leadership-tools-common-core/instructional-practice/), which describe what the CCSS for ELA/Literacy and Math look like in planning and practice.
