I designed these "Standards for Mathematical Practice" posters to match Kindergarten Common Core State Standards. They will save you time as they make student learning easier and more fun.
You’ll get four types of materials in this set--all matching and differentiated to meet your students‘ needs:
1. Full-color posters, appropriate to hang on the wall. These remind students of their basic goals when solving math problems.
2. Black-and-white versions. You may want to use these in student notebooks.
3. Detailed, full-color versions. These contain explanations of what to do before, during, and after attempting a problem. I recommend using these as a personal reference when discussing individual standards--and as a reference for people who work or volunteer in your classroom.
4. Detailed black-and-white versions. You may also use these for parent handouts. Some students will also benefit from using the advanced versions.
I modified many standards in “I can” statements to make them more comprehensible to Kindergarteners. I also reordered them based on developmental learning theories as well as how students generally solve problems. I stuck with “persevere” first (MP1). Next, students move from concrete to abstract learning: They consider using tools (MP5), followed by drawing diagrams (MP4), followed by using numbers and symbols to solve problems (MP2). Students follow the rest of the standards in order as they learn to explain their thinking; use precise pictures, numbers and words; and look for patterns as well as easy ways to solve problems.
Thanks for taking the time to consider my products!
