“CUPS” is designed around the Common Core State Standards and a need to make sense of it all. “CUPS” is a mnemonic that stands for the Craft of writing, Uses of writing, Writing Products, and the Support Writers need.
Each letter of has Common Core State Standards attached to them. I teach a 2nd and 3rd grade class, so I added in all of the Common Core Standards for both levels. It could be adapted to any level. The focus is how to take the CCSS and make them work for you in the most realistic way. My goal is always to work smarter, not harder. It is my belief that if you can frame your thinking and post it for the kids to see daily your life will be easier….planning will even be easier.
There are bulletin board letter for CUPS and labels for each attached. They are black and white so they will fit into any classroom or theme.
