These SOL I CAN Statements are derived from the VDOE’s 2010 English Standards of Learning Writing Skills. In this document you will find the Standards for Grades 1 and 2 listed, followed by the half-page I CAN Statements. These can be laminated and cut apart then posted on a Writing Focus Wall or bulletin board as each new standard is introduced. The I CAN strips page can be copied for students and included in the front pocket of their Interactive Writing Notebooks. As each new standard is introduced and worked on, students can cut out the I CAN strip and attach it to the top of their writing page.
