One thing that has really helped my understanding of the common core is to spend a lot of time looking through the standards at, above, and below the grade level I teach. What I've found is that they are much more open ended and applicable to each grade level. Here are some great reads that dive a little deeper that you might find helpful.
I would say that there aren't any "secrets" to Common Core - good teaching is good teaching. Just read the standards and take them at face value. Most of the standards are pretty much common sense. Don't be led astray by companies ad consultants who will tell you the "secrets" to making your teaching "Common Core aligned." They're just selling snake oil. Just get to know your students, then teach them what you know they need to learn in the best way you can teach it.
