This summer I have loved visiting other teachers’ blogs and learning from their amazing ideas. One of my favorites is Mrs. Jump’s Class, because she is incredibly talented and creative. A couple of weeks ago, she shared how she displayed the Common Core Standards in her classroom, and I was blown away! I’ve always been so unhappy with the way I’ve posted my standards, but this was actually cute and easy. She made a set of standards for K and 1st, and when asked about making more for the upper grades, she said that she wouldn’t be able to. I contacted Deanna and asked if I could use her idea to make a set for 3rd grade, and she said YES! Woo Hoo!!! I’m so excited about using this idea next year!
You can hang these posters and standards on a bulletin board or on your wall, and the standards attach with Velcro, so you can easily change them out as you teach.
