Texas TEKS & ELPS

Maria Fernanda Martinez

As most Texas teachers can attest to the TEA TEKS website is one of the least aesthetically pleasing and most annoying user interfaces to ever exist. I was inspired by Megan @TooCoolForMiddleSchool's to type up the standards for my grade levels in a prettied-up format and have them as a tangible tool to refer to. I personally print them out 6 to a page on my favorite color cardstock, laminate them, and punch a hole in the corner then put them on binder rings. This allows me to quickly flip through them when lesson planning or writing objectives on the board.
