Common Core ELA Rubric Posters and Checklists for Grade One
These Common Core posters are more than ‘I statements’. The differentiated posters are a workable resource that you will use as a starting point to plan, implement and evaluate your lessons.

I have always used rubrics with students as a concrete, explicit way to teach. I wanted to create a resource that is a tool:
- For interpreting the Common Core State Standards to make it easy to teach directly to the curriculum.
- With a rubric that is child-friendly.
- That informs the program from beginning to end whilst empowering young minds and making it easier to report.
* Each poster has:
1. A student friendly Common Core State Standard.
2. A header sentence that invites children to rate their progress.
3. Differentiated Common Core rubrics that break down the smaller objectives that will help students achieve the standard over time. - Please note that the standards are open to individual interpretation therefore, they could be interpreted in many ways, this file represents how I have interpreted the Grade One ELA standards.
4. Color coded stars that show the different levels within a standard.
5. The CCSS at the bottom of the page for quick teacher referencing.
* The file includes:
- A teacher overview of the differentiate Common Core Posters
- Colored Common Core Posters for display and to work with the class, small groups and individuals
- Black and White Common Core Posters for student recoding and reflection and
- A Common Core Checklist that includes the differentiated points seen in the posters.
* How do you use the ELA posters?
The ELA CCSS posters have been designed to use with children. This is not an independent evaluation system at all.
Display the poster (differentiated standard/objective) that forms the basis to your lesson. Discuss with children where they might be in the continuum (stars) with the whole class. Use the stars with the lesson demonstrating what it means to rate yourself as a one or two star writer, speaker, reader etc.
Next you will use the black and white version of the star posters as a way for children to reflect on what they have learned and how their skills are progressing.
You might like to place these black and white star sheets in a ‘Star Book’ e.g. a scrap book or art book (see preview file). This way, you can revisit that same standard in the next lesson and students can color in the next star if you both agree. Using a scrap book that you might call your ‘Star Book’, means that children can paste work samples, record sheets from games, art work, photos in the book. Students could also make a journal entry on their learning. You might also use the page next to the glued in sheet to make comments.
This book would then be a great communication tool to use with parents and other staff. It also provides formative and summative evaluation evidence. You will also gain a meaningful snapshot of where each student is at, at any given time.
Whilst you discuss with individuals or small groups their progress within a given standard, i.e. their black and white star sheets, you will have a copy of the checklist that directly mirrors your star posters. You will date the same star rubric as your student(s) did then make an inference as to the rating you will give them as an overall mark. Each school has their own rating terminology which you will use in the circles beside each differentiated standard. You might use basic, in progress and proficient so you will mark B, IP or P in the circle. This will help you with your summative evaluations including reporting to administration and report writing.
