Make it a part of your planning routine to write your standards on sentence strips (or you could type and print them out). Stick magnets on the back or use magnetic bull clips-- if your boards are magnetic or you can use a spare pocket chart -- it just becomes matter of popping up the new standard. Eventually, you'll have your collection of standards ready to reuse anytime.

Focus on one standard for students to master for the lesson objective. Write that standard in the form of an "I Can" statement (i.e. "kid friendly" language) and write that on the board or post someplace in the room to guide instructional learning and goals for students. Remember, focus on one standard. If you focus on one standard as your foundation for your lesson plan, instead of a topic (such as theme/character/etc.) your lesson objectives and plans will be clearer, and so will your assessments. So, kid friendly language, "I can retell the story and include all of the important details." (RL.2.1) + "I can retell a story to show my teacher and my classmates that I understand the story's main message." (RL.2.1). I would break this standard into two separate "I Can" statements due to the nature of the standard--I believe it has two essential skills built into the first grade strand.
I hope this is helpful. Good Luck!
p.s. It's a great practice.
You can actually buy a kit with all the CCSS on strips. Then you just have to tack them up. http://www.reallygoodstuff.com/quickview.aspx?p=702079
Hope this helps,
I printed all of the ela standards and just slide them in the sheet protectors that I attached to my chalk board. I just put some tape on the back of my horizontal sheet protectors and I slide my standards in and out when they need to be changed
