This product has two different checklists for the common core standards in English Language Arts.
1) The first version is for an individual student. This would be used if teachers want to keep checklists for each student, or if teachers want students to keep track of their own progress through a portfolio. Teachers or students check off once the topic has been introduced, and again when the topic has been mastered.
2) The second version is a class checklist. It allows the teacher to check off the standards for all the students at one time. The classlist is an editable pdf so that you can type your students' names. Instructions are included in the file.
Also, there is a page introducing each type of checklist that you can use for your binder cover or dividers.
If you're interested in math too, I have a bundle in my store for both the math and ELA standards. Save $2.00 by buying the bundle.
