Common Core Posters

Aloha Everyone! I hope you are enjoying yourself on this lovely Sunday.  I had to look at the calendar to remember what day it was, lol!

Although I am on vacation I have been working on my Summer Bucket List.  I started reading 50 Shades of Grey, I am rereading The Daily 5, I am working on organizing my centers, I am finalizing my classroom theme, and I am studying up on my Common Core Standards. Phew!

Hawaii is headed into Common Core in phases. Grades K-2 began implementing this year. I believe the upper grades start next year. We have been going to workshops and working with our grade level teams all year to align our standards.  I found a really great site, that many of you probably already know about.

Mastery Connect has been very helpful in seeing what others are doing across the country.  They have a Common Core App that you can download to your phone, ipad or your website.  (Check out mine in the sidebar)

I can quickly refer to my grade level standards to help me with a lesson or planning.  However as you look closely, some of these standards are a bit wordy and what do they mean to your students?

I have taken all the grade 2 standards and reworded them into I Can statements.  I can't believe how long this took!!  I want my students to really understand what each one means and I want to make it easy on myself to refer to them. So I created some posters for my class.

I love the bright colors and I have a different color for each sub set of standards.  Now I can copy them off, place them in sheet protectors and a binder. I can quickly find each standard and just put it right up on my whiteboard for a particular lesson.

I also made this set using a Chevron pattern background.

You can pick these up in my TpT store or in my Teacher's Notebook shop.  I will send a free copy to the first three people to leave me a comment on these. I would love the feedback!! Oh, please make sure I have your email and which set you would like.
