These are Common Core 5th Grade ELA “I Can” statements in bright colors. The statements are set up two per page so they can be printed on standard 8 ½ x 11 sized paper and hung in your classroom. I personally prefer to print them on cardstock, laminate, and use them over again each year. The statements are color coded by domain and include matching domain header cards.
Reading Literature- horizontal stripe
Reading Informational Text- rainbow cross stitch
Reading Foundational Skills- vertical stripe
Speaking & Listening- circle and diamond
Language- diagonal chevron
The standards have been made a bit more "kid friendly,” however, some of the language is intact to ensure vocabulary rigor for the students as prescribed by the CCSS. Each statement also contains the standard in the lower right corner in small print for teacher reference.
I use these in my classroom as I teach lessons. The students and I talk about the “I can statement” at the beginning of the lesson, then revisit it at the end of the lesson. I also post them on my math wall, which I refresh at the beginning of each new unit. I hope you find them useful as well! If you download and like these, please consider rating them.
