Display the Common Core "I can" statements in a pocket chart so your students know what they will be learning each day. Each standard is written as an "I can" statement in large font with key ELA terms highlighted on a desk plate with color-coded dot borders. Cards can be cut out and laminated and displayed in a pocket chart. The standards are color-coded for each of the strands: Reading Literature/Informational Text, Writing, Speaking & Listening, and Language.
