One of the teachers who reads my FB page asked if I would show what the the inside of the Common Core Documentation Book looks like. For demonstration purposes, I am going to use my daughter’s math assignment from last year.
The packet has labels that you can use for the front cover. If labels are not in your budget, you can print the page on paper (color or white). If your grade level is departmentalized, you can print the labels on different colors to make it easier for organizational purposes. I like to add a little fun to the label, so I cut it out with scissors that have a decorative edge.
When I originally made the chart that list the standards, I thought teachers would keep it in their lesson plan binders to document the dates the standards were taught. If you teach older students, they could have their own copy of the chart to put in their book. It would be a great document to use at IEP meetings. If you choose to do this, staple it twice at the top, fold in half, and tape the top half of the last page to the inside cover of the composition book. I used pretty tape so you could see it better in the picture. You might want to get a parent volunteer to come in a do this part for you.
