Extended Standards Report Cards

Hi Friends! If you are like you then you are KNEE DEEP in end of the trimester (or  quarter) grades, IEP progress reports, and report cards. There is SO much to get done in such a short amount of time! I don't know about you, but I really struggle with showing the parents what exactly we do all day long! I mean since I am in a life skills classroom the common core standards based report card isn't exactly fitting for my students and their curriculum. However, by law, I have to give the same report card that the general education classrooms give. 

So my first few years of teaching I tried writing narratives and then I just gave up completely and used the regular old report card. But I wasn't satisfied with the parent/teacher communication so I went back to the drawing table. 

In Ohio we do have extended standards, based on the CC. BUT most of my parents don't know what they are and don't have access to them as easily as the CC standards that are everywhere! 

I decided to make an "unofficial" (I say unofficial because I am doing this by my choice and my district does not make the other intensive needs teachers give additional information--which is totally cool--to each their own). report card with OUR standards that will help the parents understand how many amazing topics their child is learning all year in my classroom. 

I really like it because the parents have less questions at conferences and it really does help bridge that gap between a self contained special ed classroom and the general education. 

I teach 2nd and 3rd grade and of course the standards are split into grade bands k-2 and 3-5 so I have both versions. I made this product editable to insert your own scores in but you can not not change the format. If you have any special requests after your purchase it you can always send me an e-mail and I will make some magic happen for you :) 

Check out some pictures of the report card below! You can get it in my TPT store here


  1. Can this be changed (by you) to other state standards?

  2. I cannot find the report card in your store on TPT. What do I need to do? Thanks
