Updated Kindergarten & First Grade Common Core Math Checklist! Liebster Award!

I got a super sweet message from a parent this Thanksgiving! A student's mom sent me a message telling me how thankful she is that her son has such a wonderful teacher! Love it!

I just updated my Kindergarten and First Grade Common Core Math Records! They now include both the original simplified checklist and the new, super detailed checklist! Now these look just like the 2nd and 3rd grade checklists I have posted in my store. These checklists have been my biggest sellers by far and I wanted to make sure you had my best quality products. If you have purchased either of these items, please download the improved (super awesome!) version now!

While I love the simplicity of my original version for myself, I know some customers wanted to see a more detailed checklist. These were my very first products I ever posted on TPT. I never thought people would actually buy the things I was already using in my classroom! Since then, I've learned a lot about making quality work that everyone can appreciate. These changes were made based on your wonderful feedback and patience while I was learning the ropes of being a TPT seller. I have amazing followers! You guys rock!!

If you would like to buy these, you may want to add them to your wishlist now, and buy them during the super sales!

Usually wine these days, but on a hot summer afternoon I crave a beer or a hard cider (I blame Ireland for that last one!)
