This grade instructional checklist includes the NYS additional Common Core Standards. This can be used with any curriculum, but can also be used to help with pacing in the NYS ELA curriculum. NYS curriculum does not have to be used to use this checklist. This is handy for teachers to know when, how much, and when assessed each standard was taught. Teachers can see the depth of their teaching to the Common Core standards as well as communicate to next grade level.
