Objectives and standards can be challenging for students to understand. “I Can” statements are a student friendly alternative. This pack contains “I Can” statements for each of the 4th grade ELA Common Core Standards. Each statement is approximately 4 1/4 X 11” and will fit nicely into a small pocket chart. Print this set on 8.5 X11” letter size paper and cut into strips. To add durability, print on card stock and / or laminate.
The Common Core ELA Grade 4 - I Can Statements are color coded:
RED - Reading Literature
PURPLE - Reading Informational Text
GREEN - Reading Foundational Skills

A student self assessment is included on pages 58-65.
