This is a resource for Common Core planning that I have found useful in planning for differientiated instruction. This spreadsheet is aligned so you can see what the standard states for each grade level, K-5 side by side. For example, if you work with a 3rd grade student that is performing two grade levels below in writing, you can see the standards for second grade and first grade so you can align your instruction with the grade level standard your student is currently working at. On the other hand, if your student has mastered the grade level standard, you can use this resource to easily find the standard for a grade level or two above to accelerate the student's learning. With this packet, you have all of the Writing standards K-5 in one place for easy reference.
