“I Can” Common Core Fourth Grade

by Jill & Cathy on November 25, 2012

Our very own “I Can” standards for Common Core. “I Can” standards are the common core standards presented in a kid friendly format. Use these to help students and parents understand the new common core  fourth grade standards. (Great to help teachers understand too!) They are presented as a checklist to help students self-assess their progress. Also makes it clear to parents what skills may need extra home support.

Is something wrong with the 4th grade math “I Can Statements”? I can’t get it to open. Everything else was great!


Jill & Cathy February 11, 2013 at 5:56 am

Hi, Angie! It should be working now. Thanks for letting us know!


Claudine February 26, 2013 at 10:15 am

Thank you for sharing this and not charging a fee. I remember the good ole days when teachers wanted to share things and didn ‘t expect people to pay!

Ann-Marie June 23, 2013 at 11:04 pm

Are these resources still available? I can’t open up any of the files.


Jill & Cathy July 3, 2013 at 12:11 pm

Hi Ann-Marie! The files are there and working. You may just want to restart your browser at different points when you receive an error message. You may also need to refresh your screen if something like a dark or black screen shows up when you click on the link. Let us know if these ideas don’t work.


Dpetro June 24, 2013 at 8:35 pm

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. I have been racking my brain for ways to checkoff the skills the students have learned and a way to record it to show for data and progress.


Rosemary June 26, 2013 at 12:42 pm

What a gift to my students! “I Can’t” wait to share your “I Can’s” with them in September!


Patti Siegel June 28, 2013 at 9:18 am

You are the greatest! Thank you x 10!

Thanks so much for sharing these. I will be printing them out to use with my students.


Molly July 7, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Is this a book or just an online resource. If it’s a book how do I order it? I don’t see where to get the checklists.


Jill & Cathy July 10, 2013 at 10:05 am

Hi Molly! Just e-mailed you the link to the checklists to make it easy for you to find. They are actually under Classroom Management, Common Core on our site. No books just yet for us! :)

Thank you so much for sharing. I am new to fourth grade after teaching third for 9 years. This is so helpful. I am trying to learn a new grade level and these are very helpful. Plus it will be easy for students to know what they need to do.

Sunny September 15, 2013 at 11:54 pm

Thank you!!! I have been teaching 4th grade 11 years. I spent hours trying to develop these types of questions myself. In frustration I Googled “I Can ” statements for Common Core and found your site. This is perfect!


Jill & Cathy September 17, 2013 at 8:46 am

Hi Sunny! We have had several requests for the I Cans to be presented in this way. We will get working on it soon!
