Common Core I Can Statements help give children ownership over their own learning. As we align our curriculum to meet the Common Core, it is important students understand why they are learning different skills. By putting the Common Core standards into I can statements students are able to better understand the purpose behind each lesson. By giving students ownership over their learning they in turn become motivated because they have a goal in mind. Students are able to create goals for themselves, such "I can read and write numbers 1-120" because they are now able to understand each standard's significance. Learning Target Posters or Common Core I can statements are to give students the opportunity to see Common Core Standards in their own language and to help drive their learning.
The Common Core I can statements are perfect to display in the classroom so visitors-administration, other teachers or parents understand the objectives of your lessons, day or week. These learning target posters can be used as target learning in kid-friendly language so students also take something away from the Common Core Standards.
A Common Core I can statement Checklist is included in this pack for math and literacy again for students to take ownership of their own learning and to understand their learning target. Students can check off standards as they are able to do them independently. This is a great list to also share with parents at conferences whether it is you or the student leading the conference. There is also a Common Core checklist for each student to help you keep track of which Common Core Standards students have mastered and which Common Core Standards children are still working on.
Each I can learning target poster is clearly marked to make it easier for the teacher to grab the appropriate domain.
**I can learning target posters come in polka dot, chevron and a black and white doodle border to minimize ink usage. Choose which Learning Target Poster one you like best for your classroom or mix and match! Each Learning Target Poster also comes in THREE SIZES. I can learning target posters come in a full page, half page and quarter page size to help best meet classroom needs.**
