I created this file to help me become more aware of the specific standards and details of the Common Core. At the same time, I wanted my students to realize the many concepts they will learn on their journey through 2nd grade.
I CAN CARDS
Posting objects is a new routine for me. I loved the idea of “I CAN” statements rather than just the basic listed standard. I believe our students rise to our expectations and sincerely believe that most kids WANT to succeed.
These are black and white and can be copied on any color to match your classroom decor.
My students compile a Portfolio throughout the entire year. They add to their binders, they place their pages in themselves, they share their work and accomplishments with peers and parents. I wanted to provide a simple ‘checklist’ and encourage them to be responsible for their knowledge and education. I want them to recognize what they have learned and what they have to look forward to learning.
Education is definitely a journey for both teacher and student! I wanted to prepare myself for the specific objectives, standards and details that I will teach my kids. I want to feel confident that they will be instructed on each piece not only once but many times throughout the year.
