I created this zipped file to display Common Core Standards for students. This packet includes several different items.
*Teacher resource list comparing the Common Core Standards to the “I Can” statements.
*ELA “I Can” statements and header cards for display
*Editable ELA Common Core checklist for student mastery
*ELA Common Core checklist direction and sample sheets
The first list is a teacher resource list comparing the Common Core ELA standards to the kid-friendly “I Can” statements. This would be great to store in a binder for easy reference.
The “I Can” statements are color coded by area. Although I tried to write the standard with kid-friendly language, I also tried to preserve the language of the standard as well. Bolded, colored words on the “I Can” statements are vocabulary I intend to explain and teach my students so they better understand the standard.
The last item in this zipped file is an Excel document. I have typed a spread sheet that includes all the standards and four boxes to use as checks for mastery for EACH student. The teacher can use as a plus/ minus system noting if a student has grasped a skill or by actual percentages on the assignments. A sample page is included. This document was purposely created in Excel so that teachers can edit the pages and type in each student’s name rather than hand write. The font is Comic Sans and should be a standard font. It may not be as pretty, but hopefully it is effective and more time efficient for the teacher! Directions with pictures, samples of how to use the checklist, and trouble shootings questions are included.
All items are color coded to match. All Reading: Literature headings and cards are pink, all Reading: Informational Text are blue and so on. Pictures of how to display the standards are included.
I am so sorry to hear this. I know that must be very disappointing. Did you unzip the file? It is a zipped file and will need to be extracted before you can use all the pdf and Excel spreadsheet in the file. If you STILL can't get it open please contact TPT and they should be able to help you get all the files. I am so sorry :(.

Just started this year with CC. It is nice to have things already made up! Thank you!
To be honest, most likely not. I created these items using the standards that were directly from the Common Core documents, not from a specific state DOE. I teach in Ga and we are following CCS. I believe states that are adopting CCS can ADD to the standards, but I don't think they can delete them (if that makes sense) or remove standards. I would be happy to add any standards specific to FL if you can direct me to a where they are located. Since I am in Ga I don't know! :( I am sorry! I am afraid this is not the best of answers.

I purchased your file this morning, and it went through on Paypal. However, it's not showing up on my list of purchases. Do you have any record of my transaction?
Hmmm...I am not sure how to respond! I have no record of this transaction. I am so sorry to read this! :( If I were you I would contact TpT- they handle all the money transactions and may be able to help you. I am so sorry- one of the wonderful perks of TpT is the convenience...and this is not too convenient!:(
Hmm..I am not comfortable with selling the template because I really don't even know how to do that. I don't know how to make pdf files editable (yet). First and third are in the works as well as two back to school units. I can try to do fourth after that? When do you need them by?

Are you planning to make a 2nd grade CC math pack:)?
That is the plan! I teach 2nd so it is high on the list! I promised to do third grade ELA first so I am plugging away at them! Thanks for buying the pack! I will make the math pack coordinate, but not have identical graphics :)!
