What is an “I CAN” game?
It is literally a can that contains a variety of “test like” questions. Each question comes in multiple-choice format, or short response format (you pick the format that fits your needs).

Both sets of cards (multiple choice & short answer) come with and without QR codes. It is up to you if you want to incorporate them into your classroom!

This Game Includes….
2 different sized can covers (includes directions for students)
A guide on how to assemble the game
A guide on how to use this product
1 Checklist to help monitor student progress in this skill
40 Practice Questions – 2 formats for each question (multiple choice/written response)
QR codes (optional; for checking answers)

HOW TO USE THIS RESOURCE!!!

As a Group Game:
Place this “I Can” game out as one of your math centers. In groups of 2 or more, students can play this game against one another by seeing who can collect the most cards. To collect a card, students must answer the question correctly. If they check their answer and it is incorrect, another player can attempt to answer the question correctly and keep the card for themselves. If a student pulls an “I Can” card, they can add this to their pile of cards as a bonus and pull another card to solve.

As Independent Practice:
Students will pull a card from the can and solve it. They should record their answers on the “My Answers” sheet. When they are finished, they can check their answers using the answer key or QR code. It is a good idea to offer a reward/incentive for completing the set of cards, and/or mastering a certain percentage.

As a Progress Monitoring Tool:
When students complete this activity independently, have them keep track of their progress using the “Checklist” provided (or you can use the checklist and check their work yourself). You can then use this checklist to see if the student has mastered the focus skill. You can also use this information to help you determine if, and in what area, further instruction is needed.
