EXTENDED Content Standards Common Core "I CAN" Statements were developed in North Carolina, Delaware and Ohio for Students with Special Needs and those performing significantly below grade level.
Even though I use the REGULAR CC Standards for most of my students, I have used these levels of complexity to build up to some of the more challenging concepts.
Having the Extended CC statements posted in my room has really helped some of my kids (and me) feel less overwhelmed with regular CC statements that seem difficult to them! We can see that we can tackle them step by step!
There are 99 Grade 6-8 Science "I CAN" CC Statements in LARGE print to be easily seen by students and administration
