This set of posters will get your school year off to a GREAT start! Research has shown that if students know the learning intentions of a lesson, the learning is greater. What better way than having Center Posters that have learning intentions written right on them in kid-friendly language?! These posters are up all year so students will see the outcomes each time they visit a center.

Some of the outcomes are straight from the 2nd grade CCSS and some are "big ideas" so that students understand what the goal of the center is.

There are 17 posters for 17 learning centers.

Included are:

ABC Center

Art Center

Blocks Center

Calendar Center (with a space to write 1 of your own personal learning intentions)

Computer Center

Library Center

Listening Center

Literacy Center (In case you want to combine the Reading and Writing)

Math Center

Music Center

Pocket Chart Center

Poetry Center

Reading Center

Science Center

Social Studies Center

Word Work Center

Writing Center

But the BEST part is that not only are the posters CCSS aligned, there are OPEN-ENDED PRINTABLES that go with each center so that you are ready to go the first day of school! Not only that but these can be used YEAR round with any types of lessons you have already planned because they are open-ended!

Thank you for looking and I greatly appreciate feedback. Thanks!

Canadian buyers please make sure you buy the Canadian version for Cdn spellings. These outcomes also align to many Cdn curriculums!
