Everything “I Can” Common Core for 3rd Grade

We have gathered all of our Common Core (3rd Grade I Cans) resources for 3rd grade.  We hope this makes it easier to access all of our 3rd grade resources.

3rd Grade I Cans

We have gathered all of our Common Core resources for 3rd grade.

Our goal is that this makes it easier to access all of our 3rd 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 3rd 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 3rd Grade “I Can” Statements.

Learn about our “I Can” statements for 3rd grade below:

“I Can” Standards Posters 

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.

I have a question: do you have or are you planning to make a similar resource for the ELD or WIDA standards? The district came by the other day and they dinged me because I had CCSS posted for language arts and I'm an ESL teacher. I teach 3rd and 4th.

Hi, Becky. No, we are sorry, but we have no plans to write "I Can" statements for any English language development standards at this time. Hope that you can find a resource that helps. :(

Thank you. I teach ESE self-contained academic class (2 years below their peers). This is a great place to focus on during planning.
