We have gathered all of our Common Core (1st Grade I Cans) resources for 1st grade.  We hope this makes it easier to access all of our 1st grade resources.

 1st Grade I Cans

Within this post you will find The Curriculum Corner’s free collection of “I Can” resources for 1st grade.

We have gathered all of our Common Core resources for 1st grade.  

Our goal is that this makes it easier to access all of our 1st grade resources.  

You will find a similar set on our site for each grade level.

1st Grade I Can Statements FREE from for 1st Grade | checklists | posters | Spanish | CCSS | Common Core | Individual Statements - different colors & layouts!

These statements were written by Jill & Cathy at The Curriculum Corner.

You will find that common language is used between grade levels. Therefore making it easier for a school to use the complete set.

Also, we have provided a variety of resources to meet your needs.

These resources include checklists which are great for teachers to use to check off as standards are taught, retaught, assessed, etc.

How should I use these “I Can” resources?

Because this collection provides a wide range of resources, you will be able to find ideas that will fit your classroom.

You might use the checklists for tracking as you plan for the year. These will make it easier for you to make sure you have taught, retaught and assessed each skill.

The checkboxes can be used to help students track their own growth. These can then make it easier to communicate progress with parents during report card time or conferences.

Indidividual statements might be displayed to inform students the focus for the day.

These are just a few ideas to get you started! We are sure there are additional ideas you will think of.

This set is made with a larger font than the checkboxes.  It includes all of the same standards but they are spread out over a larger number of pages.  If you are concerned about printer ink, this is not the set for you.
