Motivate your third graders to master each standard of the Common Core by working for badges!
There is a badge for each Common Core standard. When a student masters the "I Can" checklist, he/she earns the badge.
Post badges on paper or felt vests and sashes (easy tutorials included), or charts. Makes a great hallway display, assessment tool, and parent resource!
-Academic "merit badges" (one for each Common Core standard)
-"I Can.../I Know..." checklists in child-friendly (or parent-friendly!) language.
-Tables correlating the badges to the standards and "I Can.../I Know..." statements.
-Classroom posters with all badges for each competency
-How to make a vest (with pictures)
-How to make a sash (with pictures)
