This is a vertical progression of all K-5 English Language Arts Common Core Standards in the Reading Standards for Literature strand’s Craft and Structure cluster with "I Can" statements and IEP goals/Learning Targets.
The standards are chunked together by Anchor Standard cluster to make working with them simpler and more efficient.
Find your grade level, then climb up, scoot down. Follow that standard to see where your students have been in that skill (cluster) and where they are headed.
One really useful tool is the "Quick Glance" page. All K-5 Craft and Structure standards and "I Can" statements are organized for you on one sheet of paper.
To top it off, the IEP goals for every standard are fully editable to make personalizing them a breeze. The IEP goals can be easily adjusted into Learning Targets for general education students.
Use this “staircase” to differentiate learning, gifted to intervention. It can be used to track a student’s level and for standards based grading and report cards. Show this “staircase” to students and parents to help them understand the steps that have been climbed and the steps that will be taken to reach the top and be prepared for college and career.
“Staircase” standards are perfect for multi-grade classrooms, English language learners, special education, and school-wide uses.
