This bundle was designed to make your planning process more efficient and effective. It is useful for classroom teachers creating materials for their own students as well as TPT Sellers developing products for their stores.
It includes editable files that allow you to type directly into the organizers as well as a PDF that you can simply print and write on by hand. I have included all ELA and Math standards for grades K-5 because I know teachers sometimes change grade levels and so that it would be useful to sellers designing products.
Here's how I use them...
As I begin to brainstorm and plan a unit (either content-based or thematic), I read through each of the standards and jot down ideas for printables, craftivities, lessons, resources, etc that relate to the different standards. This streamlines my thinking and makes the planning process much more efficient. It also helps to maintain the rigor of the unit and ensure that I am incorporating specific standards.
As a teacher I always find it helpful to review the previous grade's standards to see what foundational skills they should have and to also look ahead and take into account what the students will be expected to do next year.
As a TPT Seller, it is a valuable resource for aligning my finished product with the various standards.
