I downloaded the 3rd grade ELA and Math Common Core I Can Statements on August 19th, and went to print them out today. Before doing so I checked the codes to see if they match. They don't match on several. I'm wanting to have these printed out before October 10th. Is there a way to get an editable version so I can get the codes to match at the bottom? Or, can you fix them and re-upload them to your store? I'm comparing this with the most current common core standards.

Upon closer look I noticed that not all of your common core numbers are correct. For example in the second grade ELA bundle you've listed common core numbers from different grades (such as 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc)

All second grade standards are for second grade. I did not put the 2 in front if every I can statement because they are all for second grade. When you see RI 7-1 and RI 7-2, that means the 7th standard was broken down into 2 I can statements, not that it's for 7th grade!

I am sorry but there are copyright issues with sending you an editable version. I went through all the standards so there shouldn't be any missing. There might be some worded differently than you would have if you did them yourself, but I tried to make them as kid-friendly as possible.

I recently purchased your 4th grade ELA I can statements. I like the statements, however they do not seem to correlate with the common core strand. For instance, the first "I can" statement in your set deals with making inferences but in the lower right hand corner it says RL 1-1 but the common core standard is actually RL 4.1. I was just wondering why you have them labeled that way.

Hello - I purchased the 4th grade CCSS ELA "I Can" Statements and noticed that there are not I Can statements for Foundational Skills. Do you have an updated version that includes those? There also seems to be statements missing for Writing - I don't see I Can statements for W.2...maybe I don't understand the way you coded it, but the K-3 ones seemed clearer.

I am not sure why you think they are wrong. They are different than the math ones, but that is how the Common Core is labeled. The math standards start with the grade level, but the ELA standards start with the "genre" code per se. For example, RL 1-1 represents the first standard under Reading Literature. I hope this explanation helps. You can email me at jules41696@gmail.com for further assistance if needed.

I just recently purchased your 3rd and 4th grade ELA and Math Common Core cards. When I started to cut them out I noticed that the 3rd grade ELA cards all had different levels such a 1-1, 2-1, 6-1, 9-1 etc. Is this correct? The math cards all had a 3 before each standard. I don't want to cut them all out and then find out they are wrong. Plus used a lot of ink to print them. Please let me know asap

The ELA standards are broken down by categories. So, you will see the codes RL, RI, W, etc. in front of the numbers. RL stands for Reading Literature, RI stands for Reading Informational and so on. These are all included in front of the numbers on my I Can Statements. They are coded different than the math, but that is how the CCSS are labeled. The ELA standards do not have the grade level in front like the math ones do. I hope this helps.

I don't think the. Mormon core website has I Can statements. These are written directly from the common core, but I tried to put them in kid friendly language. They are not going to be exact, because kids would have a hard time understanding the common core. Sometimes there are 2 or 3 I Can statements for a standard, but the numbers are listed on each to avoid confusion. There shouldn't be anything from different grades. 5th grade is for 5th grade.

Hi! I just purchased your math "I Can" statements for Grade 3. I printed the first few pages and discovered that the statements are in a Portrait Layout, instead of the Landscape layout I thought your picture showed. I do get 2 to a page, but I have almost half the page of just blank space.
Is there a way I can change the layout? Do you have it set up in a portrait layout and your picture just doesn't show it?
Please help me, because the statements are a little smaller than I thought I would get.

My PDF is set up in Landscape Layout. You should get 2 to a page, but it should take up the entire page. You should not have half a page blank. That sounds like a technology issue and I am not sure what to suggest without being there with you seeing what you see! Maybe you have it accidentally set to print 2 sheets to a page?? If the problem persists, I would recommend asking the tech department at TPT what they suggest.

Was going to give you feedback but when I clicked on ratings and comments there was someone elses' comment but no rating scale, etc. Oh well. I think this is an ingenious idea and I wish I had thought of it! I intend to use it starting tomorrow! What is the incentive you give them for not using their card at all during the month? I have grade 3s and gosh darn, don't they "have to go" a lot! Sheesh! :-)

We have punch cards in our school as a part of PBS (Positive Behavior System) and we also have a school store. Each punch on the punch card is worth 10 cents in the store. If my students don't use any of their passes, I give them 2 punches (usually more, but I only tell them they will get 2!) If they use less than half, then they get one punch. I have a lot of students that get punches, but I also have a lot that use all of their passes. But, they don't go all the time because they only get 10! It really is a great system! I hope it works for you :)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 19 years. I was a middle school math and science teacher for the first 18 and I just recently made the change to 5th grade. I adore the elementary students and I enjoy having a self-contained classroom where I get to teach all subjects! Check out my blog My Journey to 5th Grade

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that a respectful classroom is a learning classroom. I love my students, yet I am very firm with them. We can have fun with boundaries!!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I am awarded each year by the students that leave my classroom more prepared for the world than when they entered!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I recently completed my master's degree in mathematics. It took me 18 years!! I like to say.... better late than never.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am happily married and I have twin daughters.
