THIS IS THE GRADES 6-8 VERSION =)
These 8 Math Practice Standards are the perfect size to place vertically on your whiteboard - they don't take up too much space, and they are bright and easy to read. This grade 6-8 version is a continuation of the versions that I have made for younger grades at my K-8 school. They have a simplified statement above, and the actual standard below. This version has no clip art.
I have worked for six months to adapt these standards to each grade level at my K-8 school, with lots of input from other teachers and math professionals at our County Office of Education.
What I have come up with for grades K, 1-2, and 3-5 is eight simplified statements, with longer explanations below, and the original wording at the bottom (they are listed separately because the clipart is specifically geared to the standards for each level).
Grades 6-8 are different - they include the simplified statements, but the large print below is the original wording.
Please note the picture that shows how the 8 math practice standards are used in my third grade classroom at the beginning of each new standard. We brainstorm about how each relates to the specific standard. I then take a picture of our work and print it on ledger paper so that we can continue to add to it as we work through each lesson. I plan to save these in a binder to go back and refer to.
This download includes:
-Posters of 8 Mathematical Practice Standards (I print these on ledger paper, which makes them the perfect size to line up on your whiteboard (see picture).
-One page list of standards
####Your download will be in jpeg format. I chose to do this because the colors are more vivid. If your computer doesn't allow you to print them in the temporary file that they open in, simply move them to your desktop to print!####
This has been a huge labor of love for my students and my school, and I welcome your feedback!
Happy Math Teaching,
