The change to Common Core standards is going to be tricky to achieve, so this summer I have created “Common Core Goal Cards” to help me reach my goals for achieving these standards.
I’m going to set up a bulletin board with the following headings:
- Common Core Goals
- I Taught It
- They’ve Sort-of Learned It
- Achieved Mastery!
I’ve typed up each of the Common Core goals. I’ve printed them on color-coded paper (by categories). I will be laminating them, so they’ll be sturdy enough to staple, remove, and re-staple onto my bulletin board.
And just for you, my faithful readers, I’ve included a downloadable version! Click on each of the following to download the Common Core standards in a printable form. (Remember, I teach 7th grade English/language arts, so if you teach some other grade level, you’ll need to use these as a template but adjust the goals to suit your grade.)
