Miss Kelley Writes: Why Weekly Reading Records?

English-Language Arts Common Core Standards posters for 7th grade! These posters bring the standard to life and make it easier to understand with age-appropriate illustrations and kid-friendly "I can" language. They also have a unique borderless design that will get the most out of your wall space, paper, and ink, no matter what printer model you use. Big, colorful, age-appropriate posters for the seventh grade ELA common core! I had a lot of fun making these. I hope you like 'em! $
