Do you have common core in Spanish?

Landa, sorry, we don’t have any resources in Spanish yet.

Will you do common core for pre-k also when it comes out?


Jill & Cathy February 15, 2013 at 6:47 am

Hi! Yes, we will do I Can for pre-k. We will most likely post it on our family web site where we are going to be building up our preschool curriculum over the summer. You will find it at We currently have these checklists for teachers of young children…

Thank you so much for these great forms. I was wondering if you had any for Pre-K?


Jill & Cathy April 14, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Hi! We do not yet have forms for pre-k. We are hoping to complete them this summer. Once completed, they will be found on Thanks!

This is such a great resource! I love the format and family friendly print. The clip art is perfect too. I plan on creating a color coded packet for each of my students. Thanks again.

I am planning on using these as posters in my classroom (3rd grade teacher-Cindy’s idea). I am going to put a green sticker on “I can” statements we work on, then a gold star when we master it. Great visual for me as well as the students who can look at all the stars and see all the things they “can” do!


Erin June 24, 2013 at 5:54 pm

This is SUCH a timesaver! Thank you for the freebie!!


ADELE July 10, 2013 at 2:18 pm

Thank you so much! These statements are very user friendly. Do you happen to have them typed up individually where I can post one at a time? If so, please direct me where I can find them. This has been an invaluable to while I have been planning.


Shelly LeBlanc September 28, 2013 at 2:38 pm

A big thank you for the “I Can” common core statements. This has been such a timesaver and very kid friendly especially for kindergarten. Will you be doing common core in the poster format for kindergarten? We so appreciate all your time, talent and effort.


Jill & Cathy September 28, 2013 at 4:54 pm

We’re glad you like them! We will be completing the posters for grades K – 6. Look for kindergarten to be shared next week.

These are perfect for helping us put the Core into “kid friendly” language, as well as something that can be shared with parents. Thank you!

Wow! This website is a treasure trove for teachers struggling with how to manage artifacts for teacher evaluation, recording CCSS presentation, reteaching, student growth, and achievement . Thanks for sharing all your diligent work and making this latest change in education easier.

Thank you so much for providing a means to share Common Core standards for Kindergarten in a format that can be understood by parents! Appreciate all your hard work. O:-)


Rebecca Ritchey April 30, 2014 at 11:19 am

Thank you for this breakdown of Common Core Standards! My second child is entering Kindergarten this coming year and this really helps me understand what is expected and will be taught much better! Thank you again.


Jill & Cathy April 30, 2014 at 1:49 pm

Hi Rebecca and thanks for your message! Wanted you and everyone else to know that we are currently updating our CCSS I Can statements to make them more organized and streamlined. We are also addressing any changes that have been made to them as well as creating some fun new posters! Be on the lookout for these new and updated versions by the end of June (at the latest)!! We are very excited
