$Objectives and standards can be challenging for students to understand. “I Can” statements are a student friendly alternative. This pack contains “I Can” statements for each of the 6th - 8th grade Reading & Writing History/Social Studies Common Core Standards. Each statement is approximately 4 1/4 X 11” and will fit nicely into a small pocket chart. Print this set on 8.5 X11” letter size paper and cut into strips.
