These Common Core State Standard aligned learning targets are a quick, easy and efficient way to help your students meet their daily learning objectives in Math. They are written in kid friendly language so that your students can easily understand exactly what it is that they will be learning and will be able to express it back to you. They still include some of the higher level common core language that they will be hearing and using year after year.
What makes them so quick, easy and efficient? There’s no more searching for the objectives before each lesson…for EVERY subject…and trying to word them just right. They’re already done! It just takes one time of printing, cutting, laminating and labeling. Now they are ready to be used over and over again, year after year! This makes it super easy to just flip through the targets before your lesson, looking for your lesson number on the back. Simply pull it out and post it for your students to see and now you can focus all of your time on the actual planning of your instruction!!
I printed each subject on different colored tagboard (Reading- yellow, Math- blue, Writing- purple, Speaking and Listening- pink) and laminated them. Then I figured out which lessons from our Reading and Math programs coincide with which Common Core State Standards (it's usually right in the teacher's guides). Once they are cut out, I printed the specific lesson numbers from our Reading and Math programs on sticky labels (i.e, 2-6) and placed them on the back of each target; some targets having multiple lesson numbers on the back.
Viola! You’re meeting your student’s needs, your professional requirements and putting the learning back into the hands of your students all with the snap of your fingers!
