About the Math I Can Statements
The Math I Can Statements are aligned to the 4th grade math common core standards. Each standard has at least one I Can Statement with many having more than one to meet all of the needs of the standard.
Each page contains:
- A Title that is 1-3 Words/Phrases and Summarizes the Skill
- The I Can Statement (In Kid-Friendly Language)
- The Standard Number and Standard
Using the I Can Statements
Here are some ideas for using these math “I Can Statements” in your classroom.
1. Display the statements as part of your objective or learning board.
2. Use the statements to guide students as they self-assess. I like to refer back to the I Can Statement and have my students reflect on how they are doing with the skill.
3. Place the I Can Statements in math centers. This will help your students know exactly what math skill(s) they are practicing in each center.
4. Post during small group instruction to guide your re-teaching or extension of math skills.
Organizing and Storing the I Can Statements
The I Can Statements can be stored in file folders or binders. I prefer to store them in binders inside page protectors. This keeps them from getting wrinkled or lost and I can easily grab the statement I need (and then place it back in its spot when I am finished with it).

If you use the editable version and don’t use the same fonts I did, you may notice some issues with capital letters and lower case letters (since one of the font I used is all capital letters).
