    What a brilliant idea! I’m using “I can” common core! to inform my students’ parents and I’m personally using them to guide my son and daughter in their strive to meet the common core standards. Thank you so much!

    Does anyone know where I can buy sentence strips with kid friendly common core standards printed on them?

      Hi Allen! We don’t know where you could find these currently, but it’s a great idea. We’ll put it on our to-do list!

    I didn’t see any ‘I Can” statements relating to the addition and subtraction standards… are they missing or did I miss it?

    • Jill & Cathy July 17, 2013, 1:27 pm

      Hi Randy. The third grade common core math standard for addition and subtraction (3.NBT.2) is on the second page. Third grade common core operation standards focus mostly on multiplication and division. Addition and subtraction are mostly addressed in second grade.

    Do you have “I can” statements related to 3rd grade Common Core for the areas of science and social studies?

      Hi Amber! We don’t currently have checklists or “I Cans” for science or social studies, but we will be working on science soon.

    I love what you have created! Are these the California version of Common Core Standards? I know California added some items to the Common Core. Thanks for making these- VERY HELPFUL!!

    • Jill & Cathy August 20, 2013, 10:49 am

      Hi Dinese! No, these were adapted from the list on http://www.corestandards.org which doesn’t incorporate any additional standards added by states.

    Thank you very much for sharing!! Do you know if they are translated in Spanish any where on the Internet?

    • Jill & Cathy September 5, 2013, 12:06 pm

      First grade should be posted by this weekend, Melissa, provided our translator gets them to us by tomorrow. She will be working on 2nd grade next and then move up through the grades. We hope to have them all available (1st – 6th) by January 1st.

    These are so helpful. We are in a K-8 school. I would love to see these for 7th and 8th graders, too. Are they available?

      Hi Mrs. Charmont! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we don’t have current plans to create “I Cans” for 7th and 8th grade. So sorry! We simply don’t feel qualified at this point since we are both elementary teachers. Perhaps someday we can find someone who will do them for us and we can post those. Until then, I hope that our 7th and 8th grade checklists are helpful.

    Are third grade “I can” CC standards going to be transalted into Spanish? That would be immensely appreciated!!

    • Jill & Cathy September 24, 2013, 5:18 pm

      Yes!!! Our translator is working on kindergarten and second grade right now, but will then move on to 3rd! :)

    I’m not sure if my first post didn’t work, or if it landed on a different page, so if I’m repeating myself, I apologize in advance. I LOVE the check Lists! THANK YOU! Will you be making any of the updated checklists with the darling clip art you used on the old ones? I would love to put these in their learning folders and the art work was very cute. Either way, will you share where you got the cute clip art? Thanks again, your work is very appreciated!
