Did you know the Common Core math standards were not created equal? There are certain standards that we should be spending the majority of our time on, and others only need minimal time. Achieve the Core (http://achievethecore.org) has determined which are the most important standards for student success. I've created these color-coded standard posters to help guide your instruction, and give your students help in evaluating their progress (each color represents a different percentage of recommended instructional time). Display the posters in your room as you teach each standard, keep them up all year as a reference tool, or use them to assess student progress! Each standard fits on a half-sheet of paper to save space.
