The Common Core State Standards have arrived, and are being implemented across the country! This file contains Essential Questions to go with the Kindergarten standards for Language Arts and Math.
This file is pocket chart-friendly, and can be posted on a wall, too. And to help keep everything straight– the posters are color-coded! Each strand of the Language Arts Standards has its own color, and each strand of the Math Standards has its own color.
The posters provide a few different options. If you’d like a large header for each strand, no problem! Those are included. If you’d prefer to have one poster for each strand, and attach the standards to that, it’s there, too. And for those who like to keep it really simple, there are headings that say simply, “Language Arts” and “Math.” Each question will fit perfectly in a pocket chart, as well, so you have lots of options!
There is an Essential Question for every standard. In some cases, one question may cover more than one standard. In other instances, there are multiple questions for a single standard. These questions are intended to help teachers and students focus on the most important part of each lesson.
Every Essential Question is printed in an easy-to-read primary font and includes a related graphic. And just in case ... I’ve also included a blank page for each strand. You may want to write something on it that relates to the standards, or perhaps you may use it for vocabulary or notes.
