"I Can" statements

Check out these Common Core 5th Grade Math “I Can” statements I made. The statements are set up two per page so they can be printed on standard 8 ½ x 11 sized paper and hung in your classroom. The statements are color coded by domain.

Operations and Algebraic thinking- black and green rosette
Numbers and Operations in Base 10- black, pink, and green polka dot
Numbers and Operations- Fractions- pink, green, and white stripe
Measurement and Data- green and pink rosette
Geometry- pink and green argyle

The standards have been made a bit more "kid friendly,” however, some of the language is intact to ensure vocabulary rigor for the students as prescribed by the CCSS. Each statement also contains the standard in the lower right corner in small print for teacher reference.

I use these in my classroom as I teach lessons. The students and I talk about the “I can statement” at the beginning of the lesson, then revisit it at the end of the lesson. I also post them on my math wall, which I refresh at the beginning of each new unit.

Like them? Download them (free!) at TpT.  I hope you find them useful as well! 


  1. These I Can statements look awesome! I emailed a link to your blog to my 5th grade team. I taught 5th grade last year and loved it! But, I needed to teach part-time this year so I made a HUGE SWITCH to 1/2 day kindergarten this year. WOWZA!! What a difference! But, I'm loving my sweet kinders. :) I found your blog via the TBA New Blog link-up. I'd love for you to pop over to my blog and take a walk on the Kinder Side with me!!

    Happy Teacher Heaven

  2. Thank you for these! And for posting on Math Monday. :)

  3. Hi Mandy! Your cards are cute and similar to what I recently created. Great minds think alike. ;) I did want to let you know that you made a typo on the measurement standards. If you're doing the common core it should read MD instead of ND. Just thought I would let you know. Have a great week!
