I am looking for ways to display and organize Common Core "I can" statements. Any ideas?
I printed them out and put them in my centers. This way when I see them in different parts of the room, it prompts me to remember to bring up those concepts on the spot to: review, "pop quiz" orally or just have a teachable moment. By doing this, it also helps me to learn the new standards better.
How do you store them and know which to pull out?
I printed them onto nice paper from a CCSS website. Then I stapled the pages together notepad style onto construction paper and attached them onto the walls. ELA -reading is in the reading area, and math over by those materials. Writing is at my desk. They are also in places that remind me to bring them up when teaching, like by the carpeted area when the kids are there. I keep a packet of all of them on my desk to refer to when I have to work on plans or something requiring them.

I put them on my objective board and during the lesson, I state, "I can ..." and make the students repeat after me. I also use them as closure for my lessons. I refer to them often in my lesson and the students know where to look for them.

Love it! You don't have to find it or put it back...just turn the page. Perfect.
So you write them daily?
If you place them on the objective board daily, how do you organize the storage?
I bought them from TPT that are already printed. They are organized in a binder in sleeves. I'll take a picture to show what my board looks like and try to post it.

That would be great especially the binder.
I saw a few on TPT too.
I am concerned with keeping them orderly and user friendly.
I might put new ones up but not always put the used ones away.
I typed them all out for fifth grade-I think they are a 1/3 of a page each. I have them 'color coded' (with patterns) for each subject/topic. I laminated them and put magnets on the back. Then I put them in a box by my board. I can quickly go through the math and pull out the ones we're working on that week. Same with reading, writing, etc. I can pick them out just by reading them-oh yes, that's the lesson we're doing.

Here's a picture of my board:
Here's a picture of my storage:
I bought cute design like standards off a teachers pay teachers, and I pin them to a section of my in-class bulletin board, which has math symbols' fabric.
Here are the ones that I bought. As I was leaving my class today, I thought that I forgot to take the picture. School is closed tomorrow and Wednesday. Here is the link to the ones that I bought: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/...ore-Math-Standards-Posters-Zebra-Print-378833
I have the math and ELA standards.
I use these, and I display them in the matching pocket chart:
I like them, because they contain the full standard on one side, and an "I can" statement on the other. I also like the wording and simplicity of the cards (not decorated in fancy borders, owls, monkeys, etc.). They're timeless and simple!

That does seem organized and easy to use. Thanks.
Thanks for sharing! I like that they are attractive without being too cutesy.
I saw these and wondered if they are too small or wordy. Glad to hear not as I think this is the route I will begin with.
There are also these on TPT. I like the other ones because they match my decor. The less work the better. This link is for 3rd grade, but the seller has other grades.
