These poster backgrounds are designed to supplement my Student Friendly Common Core We Can Statements for ELA (currently available for grades 5 – 10). Because so many states, including my own, have chosen to adopt state standards that include slight modifications of the Common Core State Standards, teachers who are using my We Can Statements may need to adjust wording or standard labels. This set of templates will allow you to type in additional standards, those that have minor changes in wording, or even standards for another subject area and still match the size, color, and style of the We Can Statements that I produced based on the ELA Common Core standards.
The fonts I used are available on TeachersPayTeachers.com free for personal or classroom use. They are HelloDoodletype

. After you download a font, you must install it on your computer and restart PowerPoint before the font will appear in your formatting menu. Installation procedure varies depending on your computer operating system, but can generally be done by dragging the .ttf font file into your Font Book (Mac) or Fonts folder (Windows). You may also be able to right-click the .ttf font file and choose Install. After you have completed font installation and restarted PowerPoint, you can open this file, click into any text box, and highlight the “type here” text to begin typing in the selected font.
