Documenting the Common Core
Are you required to document what common core standards you have taught or do you like keeping track just for yourself? Some schools hold you accountable for what you have taught and want you to document it.
I have an easy way to document what standards you have taught and when you have taught it. I like to teach things more than once to be sure the students get a better grasp on it. So these documentation checklists have 3 spaces for recording when you teach a standard.
Some schools are expecting teachers to document after an assessment of how many students mastered that standard. Keeping track of this helps for when a percentage of your students need to go out for Response to Intervention (RtI). These check-lists provide a place for you to record the percent that mastered each standard.
There are even spaces for you to write notes. It is handy to have a place to jot down what books you used or methods that worked great for your teaching.
If you click on the above picture, you will be taken to my store where you can find common core documenting checklists for kindergarten through grade five.
I hope this helps to make keeping track of the common core a whole lot easier for you! Now when an administrator or parent needs to know when you taught something specific or how the whole class did on it, you will have all your information right at your fingertips!!
