The One iPad Class ~ Standards


Today I'm going to focus on those pesky standards apps.

Of course, the first one and the biggie is the

I love how I have access to ALL the standards-I can jump down to 3rd to see what they should have learned, or jump up to 5th to see what they'll be focusing on.
I do wish there was a way to see the vertical alignment a little better, and that I didn't necessarily have to click on the standard to view the whole thing, but I have found this very helpful.

If you don't have the common core-not to worry!

Image result for mastery connect apps {FREE} Mastery Connect also has your state standards up and ready to go! (and yes, I checked-all 51 states (w/DC) are there!)
I especially like this one because I can pull up the social studies and science standards that are relevant to my state.

This one is better organized-by grade-but once you get into your grade, its just a loooong list of standards-not separated out by domains.

And, if you're like my state and in the process of adopting these, you can also get the

We're still working out the kinks if we are going to fully align (at least my district is-the state left it up to the districts to decide if we would follow), but it comes in handy!

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/trackcc-browse-track-share/id924533158?ls=1&mt=8  {FREE App/$25 Subscription} Track CC is an app that I found very recently.


One of my favorite thing about it is that you can have the "I Can" statements right underneath the standard-makes it easier to understand!

It also allows to sign up for a teacher account (free for 30 days, $25 subscription) to track your students progress towards the standards.

You can view by student

Or by standard.

I haven't tried out the assessment feature yet-I'll wait until next year before trying that out and deciding if it is worth the $25.  But I've gotten plenty of use out of the standards and I Can statements! Right now, it's only available on the App Store, but they are making plans for Google Play.

Between these four, I have all I need to make sure my planning goes smoothly!

Smiles and Sunshine,
