Updated 3rd Grade CCSS “I Can” Checklists

These 1st Grade “I Can” Checklists are designed to easily track standards taught in the classroom.

1st Grade "I Can" Checklists

This is another free “I Can” Common Core resource from The Curriculum Corner.

Add these 1st grade I Can checklists to your collection of standards resources.

Our common core standards checklists are just what you need to help you keep track of the standards taught in your classroom. 

How can these checklists help me?

Use these to make sure you are addressing all that you need to teach throughout the course of the school year.  

Keep track of when you have introduced, retaught and assessed each indicator.  

One important part of the common core are the anchor standards that carry through from kindergarten to high school.  These have been included with each language arts checklist so that you don’t lose sight of your essential goals for teaching and learning.

***Please keep in mind that these checklists are more to be used as a system of checks and balances in your teaching for the year and not so much a “check off” sheet for these indicators to be checked and thought of as “done”.  You will be teaching so many of these concepts during your small groups and one-on-one conferencing each and every day.

The checklists are available in two formats:

  • an editable Excel spreadsheet where you can type your dates and/or notes in the boxes
  • printable PDF for writing in your info

**Note – you may have to play around with your margins to get them to print just the way you want them.

The first two resources are the more in depth explanatory standards provided on  You may want to print them and keep them in the front of a data binder for reference.

The first set of checklists have been created using the CCSS as they are found on and a second resource has been created using the I Can statements we created.

Choose whichever suits your needs the best!

Great website! I would like to know if you have the Third grade I Can statements in Spanish. It would be a blessing and very useful for me and my students. Thanks, Annie Melendez-Cruz Third grade Bilingual Teacher
