      Hola Ariel,

      The Common Core Standards are new to the US. They are a shared group of standards students should achieve in literacy and math at each grade level. Rather than try to re-explain, I'll just give you a link to the standards. http://www.corestandards.org/

            I like sharing the following videos with teachers and parents who need quick and relatively simple information for CC ideas:

              If you have an iphone, Mastery Content has a great Ap which lists the standards and many resources for Common Core. I like to be able to reference it when I am writing my plans. It covers Math, Language Arts, Social Studies & History as well as Science and Technical Subjects. Each area is broken down by grade levels. It should give you some great ideas.
