D5 Board for Choices

I spent a lot of time making a beautiful choice board for D5, and ended up putting it away after a couple of months to use the clipboard only when it became a huge time-suck! The kindergarteners had...

The states that adopt the Common Core Standards have the option of adding up to 15% additional in their own state. This is a "can-do", not a "must-do"! :-) For example, in my state of NY, they...
