'I Can' Statements - Literacy (Lower Primary)

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 37 pages | Years: F - 2

A set of 90 'I can' statement cards focusing on literacy for lower primary.

This set of ‘I can’ statement cards are designed to help students develop literacy skills. The statements help students to reflect upon their work and become more responsible for their own learning.

‘I can’ statements are available for:

  • reading
  • comprehension
  • writing
  • speaking and listening.

Print, laminate and stick a small magnetic strip to the back so they can be stuck on to your classroom whiteboard. Blank cards are also included for personalised ‘I can’ statements.

How to use this resource:

  • Use the ‘I can’ statements as weekly classroom goals. Once the class has achieved their ‘I can’ statement, stick all of the statements on a display board as a reminder of the goals they have achieved.
  • Use the ‘I can’ statements during small group activities. Each group will have an ‘I can’ statement they are working towards.
  • Print out sets of the ‘I can’ statements to be used for individual students. Stick their own ‘I can’ statement on their desk, to remind them of what they are working towards in literacy.

Please note, this resource is a large file so may take a little longer to download.

Can be used in conjunction with

    Hi Guys, Just putting together a full set of these, however the speaking and listening statements appear to be missing from the downloadable file... Thanks, Kaitlyn

    HI Scott, when I click on the picture it goes to another page with a black boarder and just a picture no download or view buttons. Thanks for your quick reply

    Hello I am new to TeachStarter this year and love it. I think the I can statements are fantastic, but I am unable to access the reading, speaking and listening and writing ones. Do I need to upgrade or are these not finished yet? Great work. Kind Regards Belinda

      Hi Belinda, Thank you for your kind feedback! Can you please let me know what happens when you attempt to download them? You should certainly be able to download them on your Teacher Plan. Kind regards, Scott

    These are fantastic, thank-you! Will there be more statements coming for the middle grades?

      Hi Michelle, We have only done lower, middle and upper 'I can' statements for the maths area. For literacy we incorporated the middle grade statements into lower or upper. We are glad you like this resource! -Holly
