Many people have been asking about textbooks for Common Core/Essential Standards.  The CK-12 Foundation is,

A non-profit organization with a mission to reduce the cost of textbook materials for the K-12 market both in the U.S. and worldwide. Using an open-content, web-based collaborative model termed the “FlexBook™,” CK-12 intends to pioneer the generation and distribution of high quality educational content that will serve both as core text as well as provide an adaptive environment for learning.

      If you click on the link in the post it will take you directly to the Flexbooks website, then you can sort resources by content area. There are more resources for 6-12 than K-5, but there is some K-5 stuff if you look through the options.
