First Grade Common Core Standards Posters

Okay, first grade friends! I've finally completed the First Grade "Kid Friendly" Common Core Standards Posters. I have had many requests for these and have been working on them for quite some time. I am exited to share them with you!

These 1st grade common core posters are unique due to the fact that the standards cards are two-sided: one side is the exact standard written and coded for your records, the other side is the same standard written in "kid-friendly" language so that your students will be able to understand what it is they will be learning. (NOTE: I've taken great care in trying to preserve the meaning of the standard when I changed it into terms that the students can understand. I kept most verbage the same and used synonyms for more challenging words to help first graders understand!)

This document includes ALL standards for Language Arts (reading, writing, language, etc.) and Math.

Also included are subject heading cards for your display, information explaining how to read the coding on each card, and directions on how to print and make the cards. Making the cards is very simple-- you just need to print, cut around the solid black line (but DO NOT cut the line in the middle) and then fold in half. One side will be the "teacher" side and the other is the "kid-friendly" side. Just laminate, if you wish, and display in your classroom to make the learning goals more visible to your students!

Check them out... Just click on the picture above to be taken to the link! I hope these posters help you with the new transition to the Common Core!


  1. These look great. I like how you included them so that the "teacher language" standard is on one side and the "kid friendly" standard is on the other. :)

  8. Question-- I know it is probably very simple... But do you have any suggestions on where to buy the ribbon for the display, what width would recommend for ribbon, and what length for the ribbon? Thanks so much! --Julee
