Just print these great reminders out for students. Many teachers find that posting the topic or topics of the week have helped their students improve quickly. We cover all the areas that are part of the Common Core Standard. We have a number of high-quality print outs available for you below. Make sure to print them at three-hundred or more dots per inch, if possible. We recommend you laminate all the posters so you can use them for a much longer time.
