These “I can…” statements support the ELA & Mathematics Common Core Standards for 2nd Grade in kid-friendly language. Each statement is on a ¼ page paper (portrait). I made these smaller than the typical ½ page, so they would fit more easily in pocket charts, or on a bulletin board. Each strand is color-coded with a different graphic. These are non-editable.
Reading Informational Text
Speaking & Listening
Operations & Algebraic Thinking
Numbers & Operations in Base Ten
Measurement & Data
I have also included black and white sets. In my classroom, I have printed them on cardstock and had them laminated for durability. As a standard is being addressed, it is on my objective wall. When mastered, it is moved to my bulletin board. It is a great way for me, my students, administration, and parents to see what we have accomplished, and what we have yet to accomplish.
In addition, there is Common Core Standards checklists for the teacher, which is handy for tracking which standards have been addressed in your classroom. I also included Standards BINGO cards for student data folders, so they can track their own progress.
