Organize your standards-based classroom with these ELA standards stickers in so many ways. Sort activities, handouts, and assessments in file folders labeled by skill. Add a standards label on a practice worksheet before making copies. Give each student a sticker to place on an interactive notebook page. You can even paste these directly into your planner.

How to Use these ELA Standards Labels
The text of these standards is a student-friendly adaptation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. I have simplified the text in some standards and broken standards into two or more entries when I felt a given standard was more than could be addressed in a single lesson. You may not want a separate folder for each entry; you can always combine those standards by placing multiple labels on the front of a folder.
Adding a whole page (30 mailing label copies) of a single standard was a request from a friend, and we have already thought of so many ways to use these!
- Place one on a student handout before you make photocopies
- Stick them on student work that you display as exemplars in the classroom or hallway
- Give one to each student to place on a page in their binders or notebooks
- Or even stick them in your lesson plan book!

Everything You Need to Make Your Standards Labels
If you want to make your own set of file folder labels, you will need Avery (or compatible) 5366, 5395, and/or 5160 labels and a set of file folders. I love the colored file folders because I can color-code my materials by ELA strand. Blue = Reading Literature; green = Reading Informational Text; yellow = Writing; red = Speaking & Listening; and orange = Language.
