Learning targets are an amazing way to help your students take ownership in their own learning process. But then what? Show your students exactly HOW they will be successful at meeting their daily, weekly or unit long objectives. Each of these ready to go success criteria are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for third grade. They explicitly tell and/or show your students different ways to be successful in meeting their learning targets. They come in both color and black and white, so you can choose what works best for you. They help your students understand each step in the process of meeting the specific standard they are working on.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3
♦ Print out
♦ Post them up by your learning targets or objectives
Now they’re ready to be used over and over, year after year! The standard is written in the lower right corner, so it’s quick and easy to find your success criteria in seconds. No more spending tons of time trying to come up with what the success criteria will be or having to do it on the fly with your students. Now you can spend your time planning the actual instruction!
They can be used in many ways. You can:
♦ Post them on the wall next to your learning targets, standards or objectives
♦ Use it as a guide as you write them with your students
For something hands-on, shrink them down on the copier for students to have access to at their seats while they are working!!
***UPDATE!! I have updated the success criteria to include an editable page. This way you have the option to make the success criteria a little more personal to your teaching style or needs based on the groups of students you have from year to year. Please note that the color, fonts and sizes are the same, but the alignment and other formatting may be different. The spacing between each criteria will vary based on how much text you include in each section. The editable criteria will be very similar, just not exactly identical.
