Common Core Flip Books for Math


 Before Common Core Standards, my state, Kansas, created flip books aligned to the state standards.  I used mine quite often and found it to be very helpful.  Now with the new Common Core Standards that old flip book was pretty much useless.

So imagine my delight when the math coach in our district shared a brand new, hot off the presses, link to a Common Core Flip book.  The flip book was created by Melisa Hancock.  It follows the format of our previous Flip Book.  I think it will be a great resource...especially these first few years as we get acquainted with Common Core.

The picture above shows my brand new Flip Book.  Directions on how to assemble are on the first page.  She suggests you use card stock, but I just used regular paper.  What I will probably end up doing is printing a second one on cardstock, have it laminated and then bind it across the top.  This will make it durable for the long haul.

If you would like to print a copy of your own, click on my photo.  You will be linked to the site.  You'll need to scroll down the page a bit.  You'll see that she has created Flip Books for grades K-8.
