Everything “I Can” Common Core for 2nd Grade

We have gathered all of our Common Core resources for our 2nd grade I Can statements.  We hope this makes it easier to access all of our 2nd grade resources.  

2nd grade I Can

Within this post you will find The Curriculum Corner’s free collection of “I Can” resources for 2nd grade.

We have gathered all of our Common Core resources for 2nd grade.

Our goal is that this makes it easier to access all of our 2nd grade resources.

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

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 2nd Grade “I Can” statements?

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.

Individual 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 when using our 2nd Grade “I Can” Statements.

I really appreciate all of your hard work. Your kindness and dedication to helping teachers is a priceless gift! I really love the Individual I Can Statements, which I could use to post the I Can statements each day. However, I am doing the Spanish classroom next year in our 2nd grade DLI program. Do you have the Individual I Can Statements available in Spanish yet? I would LOVE those!

Hi Kim! So sorry...not sure where you might find those. At this time we don't have plans to write them ourselves either. If you do find that someone has done that work, please let us know and we will be sure to share it with our followers who might be interested! Thanks!

Hello Alejandra! So glad you like the "I Can" statements. We currently don't have the Spanish versions separated onto individual posters, but we will consider working on these in the next few months and getting them added to the post. Thanks!
