Kindergarten Common Core Posters For Math: Black & White


Do you need or want to post your common core standard that will be the focus of your day or lesson? These posters are written as "I can" statements that can be easily read to or by students and quickly understood by adults that enter your classroom.

The best part! These posters are ink friendly. They are created in black and white so that you can mount on any color you would like to add a splash of color. They can also be easily sized to your liking on any copy machine.
