Looking for an engaging way to use those "I Can..." statements?
Why not "WHACK a Standard"?
Research shows that posting and using “I Can…” statements with your students has the most “bang for the buck” in improving student achievement on standardized tests.
This is a set of "I Can..." statements for all of the North Carolina Science and Social Studies Standards for 5th Grade! For each area, there is a Whack a Standard card for students to mark as they show mastery of each standard/I Can Statement! My kids LOVE being able to "whack" those standards!
We store the “Whack to Show Mastery” cards on a book ring in the pocket of our data folders. Students love using bingo daubers (I keep a basket of assorted color bingo daubers next to the data folders) to mark the card as they show their mastery of each standard!
I copy everything onto white card-stock paper and laminate the “I Can…” statements to hang in my room on our Objective Board as we cover them! I also included our signs that hang above the board!
