Looking at the National Core Art Standards can be overwhelming! So let's break it down. This BUNDLE of documents contains an overall look at Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade visual arts standards in all four Artistic Processes: Creating, Presenting, Responding, and Connecting. These documents break it down standard by standard, and grade by grade.
For each standard, I have written out the anchor standard, standard code, description of the standard. In addition to what the National Core Art Standards give us I have included an "I can" statement for each standard, as well as a checklist for specific skills a 1st Grade student should know within that standard.
Here's an example:
Cr1- Generate and conceptualize artistic ideas and work.
VA:Cr1.1.1: Engage collaboratively in exploration and imaginative play with materials.
I can explore and play with materials with my classmates.

Each document contains a two page (or one front and back) color coded chart that elegantly provides the above information for each standard.
Each document also comes with a single page "cheat sheet." This segment of the document acts as an easy to read "check list." It is here that all of the "Upon completing 1st Grade, visual arts students will be able to…" Statements are compiled. Next to each statement is the standard code for you to be able to easily find it's coordinating "I can" statement. These document can easily be printed for every student and as skills are mastered, items can be checked off the list.
Each document contains a full page "How to use this document" as well. See the preview!
