Thanks for your interest in my Bulletin Board “I Can” Statements. Simply print, trim, and post them throughout your classroom. Should you wish to make your own statements, please use the editable PowerPoint included in the download. These cards fit well in pocket charts & on traveling tri-fold boards! Each card measures approximately 2.4” x 7.5”. I have my cards posted on my magnetic white board. The ELA-based standards are listed on the CAFÉ (Daily 5) section, and my math cards are located on my calendar/math board.
These 88 cards were created to help families (and school officials) decode and make connections with the reading, writing, language, and math standards used in many kindergarten classrooms. The “I Can” statements let everyone know what it might look like when standards are met by kindergarten students.
The color-coded background helps keep the standards categorized on bulletin boards and pocket charts. As the year progresses, I swap cards and replace them with our current overarching target(s). When I begin teaching a new target / standard, I make sure to introduce students to the card. We refer back to the card(s) during our mini-lesson for the day. This helps everyone in the room have a clear idea as to what our goals are per lesson.
