These 5th Grade ENGLISH "I Can..." Statements are made from the Virginia standards of learning. They cover all of the English standards: communication, reading, writing, and research.
*Please note, I did not change the language to be "kid friendly." I discuss each standard with my students in order to ensure their understanding of it.
The statements are color-coded. All of the communication standards are green, the reading standards are blue, the writing standards are red, and the research standards are gray.
I would recommend printing these on card stock or laminating them.
