Are you looking for good resources aligned to the common core?
Do you want to confirm that the resources truly align to the common core using some sort of guide as you move through the year?
We have developed two interconnecting websites to answer both of these questions for you. In the past two years the South Dakota Department of Education has funded and supported the creation of the South Dakota Blueprints for Learning and the myOER.org site of curated resources.
The South Dakota Blueprints for Learning - http://sdccteachers.k12.sd.us - was developed as a guide to help teachers feel assured that they were meeting all the common core standards for each grade level as a year long progression. This site also provides links to the disaggregated standards which puts in each standard into friendly language and learning target format for educators and students. The blueprints and the disaggregated standards were developed and vetted by South Dakota educators. We invite all teachers to use these as their guides throughout the year. You can even make a copy of the blueprints and adjust them any way you find most useful to you.
Then, to support the South Dakota Blueprints for Learning, we brought educators from across the state together to curate the best of the best resources from the web and connected them to the instructional focuses within the blueprint. All of our Thinkfinity content partners are within myOER.org along with many other outstanding lessons and activities from other states and organizations across the nation. http://myoer.org.
Some of our educators have created videos and will be providing webinars over the next two months to help you use both resources easily and effectively:

Webinars can be found at TIE - Workshops. We welcome you to join these webinars and hope you find both the South Dakota Blueprints for Learning and myOER.org beneficial to you.
