Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest.....Gotta Love it!

   Recently, while surfing through Pinterest <3, I happened across a great site entitled All Things Common Core.  This site is just as it states, there are so many things pertaining to the common core.  I worked through one of the links and found a tool that shows a visual comparison of the SSSS and the CCSS.  The chart was a little difficult to get to and even more difficult to understand initially.  After a while, however, I realized that this was a very key item in helping me understand the difference in planning and instructional time between the two based on each standard. I was so thrilled that I had to share it with you.  Yes, I am a Math Geek!

   Unfortunately, the chart did not copy as well as I had hoped but there is enough information to be helpful.  First of all, please realize that the parameters for this chart did not come through but the left side of the colorful boxes represent the current Florida Standards for grades 3-5 and the right hand set of boxes represent the CCSS.
