I created a Planning Binder with all of the common core standards and our district timelines and it has been a solid resource for me as I plan. However, I have thought many times while using my binder, that there still must be a better way. This product is the result! I have color-coded the individual parts of the ELA Standards and created cute little “icons” for each using these wonderfully adorable graphics from http://www.mycutegraphics.com/.
I also added a table of contents so you can go straight to the correct page as opposed to flipping pages every time you need to reference the standards. I plan to laminate my pages and replace the standards documents in my planning binder with these. Nothing like Spring Break to get onto those projects you can’t find time for when school is in full swing.
I will be creating Math standards in the same way and it won’t be long!
I hope you find this to be as useful as I anticipate it will be for me!
