This Common Core State Standards checklist is for 1st grade English Language Arts. It's a great way to organize the Common Core and to make sure you are teaching every specific part of the core. It's also a perfect tool to keep you organized and aware of your students' mastery in each part of the Common Core ELA. Once you teach a standard and students have mastered it, just write the date. There is a space for a second mastery date for any time you go back to verify later in the year students still have full mastery of each standard.
