Is your Minnesota school using the Common Core Standards? Do you want students to be able to comprehend the standard but still maintain the integrity of the academic wording? If so, then these posters are for you.
This free set of posters supplements my Common Core Standards Posters for fourth grade.
Currently, Minnesota has only adopted the Common Core Standards for ELA. This download contains additional standards for English Language Arts only.
These Common Core Standards posters are unique because the concept of each standard is illustrated with a colorful graphic that helps students visualize the standard. The graphics are cute but not babyish. They don’t just decorate the poster; they truly VISUALIZE the concept of the standard, so students who don’t understand the text can figure it out by looking at the picture.
The illustrations are not the only thing about these posters to help your students understand the standard. The wording of the standard has been rewritten to make it kid-friendly, while still maintaining the intended meaning and academic rigor of the standard. I’ve substituted synonyms for complex academic words when possible, and I’ve broken the standard down into smaller chunks of meaning to make it easier to comprehend.
Everything in this poster kit can be printed on letter size (8.5” x 11”) paper. No cutting is required. Just fold along the dotted line.
