I hope I don't get a lot of enemies for asking this, but is there anyone who actually likes the common core standards better? Granted, I teach the extensions of the common core, but I actually like these a lot better than the other standard course of study. Perhaps that's just because more work was done to decide what would be adapted from the regular standards for my kids. Before, it was done in a generic way. I am loving them. Please don't kill me.
