Motivate your kindergarten students to master each standard of the Common Core by working for badges. Each Common Core standard is represented by a badge. When a student masters the "I Can" checklist, he/she earns the badge.
Post badges on paper or felt vests and sashes (easy tutorials included), or charts. Makes a great hallway display.
-Over 50 "merit badges" (one for each Common Core standard)
-"I Can.../I Know..." checklists in child-friendly (or parent-friendly!) language.
-Tables correlating the badges to the standards and "I Can.../I Know..." statements.
-Classroom posters with all badges for each competency
-How to make a vest (with pictures)
-How to make a sash (with pictures)
