OH LIFE! It has been a crazy busy beginning of school. NOT BECAUSE OF SCHOOL! lol Family issues- it will all be ok- someday!
So I got another package in the mail! In the box was Carson- Dellosa's Learning Targets and Essential Questions! I can't post a picture of it cause technology and I are not friends tonight apparently. :( Here is the link for them though: Complete Common Core State Standards Pocket Chart and Cards Starter Set Any way - I was a little skeptical at first. I had Complete Common Core State Standards Pocket Chart and Cards Starter Set. I wasn't sure what the difference was going to be. I really like these those. These make much more sense for my classroom. We use essential questions. These have essential questions. The cards are sturdy and they are two sided. Essential question on one side and I can statement on the other. The pocket chart is great - not too big. Doesn't take up precious wall space. I love that the cards are divided by subject ( two colors - red and blue; language arts and math). Makes it so much easier to find them. They are also divided by strand too- ie- counting and cardinality; measurement, etc. These just seem more kid friendly. Carson-Dellosa is so cool they even made some videos about them! Check these out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qTxfme5F6Q and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4uM9K5uZXo The first one is information and the second is a workshop video! Super cool!
I usually do my essential questions for each lesson on a Smart Board document, but I think this might be easier to post for the standard that we are working on. I'm excited to use these and for once I know which bulletin board I'm going to hang the pocket chart on! Go check it out!! You know it's good quality stuff!
I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson-Dellosa and have received this product for free to review.
