This checklist boils down the Essential Elements (standards for students with cognitive disabilities who will take the DLM). You can check off goals as your students accomplish them, with up to six spots for assessment dates. I recommend start of the year, at the end of each quarter, and an assessment right before their annual IEP meeting. You could also use this checklist to plan instructional units for kids. Packet includes a final page for notes, and IEP goals that are not part of the Common Core Essential Elements. Enjoy!
