EARTH SPACE SCIENCE 6th 7th 8th Grades Florida Standards
“I Can” Posters & Checklists Bundle
This is a complete set of “I Can” posters and checklists for the Earth Space Science Florida Standards, grades 6 – 8. The standards are rewritten in student-friendly “I Can” statements. Use these in your classroom to “frame” the lesson. Show the students what they will be learning during the lesson.
The posters coordinate with the checklists. Each standard category is marked with a different symbol, which is used on both the checklists and the posters. These symbols make it easy to students to find the standards on their checklists.
The statement is the focal point of each poster. The standard number is placed in the title ribbon in the top corner.
The posters are simple to print and can be printed on colored paper or card stock.
I recommend printing these on cardstock and laminating them in order to extend lifespan.
Save the posters in sleeves in a binder to reuse them year and year.
The I Can Checklists include pages set up to show all the standards and single-standard pages. They are included in both PDF format and Google Slides®.
The PDF checklists have textboxes, so teachers can type directly in the file. The single-standard pages are set up to autofill the student names on all the pages at once.
The Google Slides® versions do have textboxes, but they are not autofill. Just type the student names on the first page, then copy and paste them on the others.
These handy checklists can be used in multiple ways:
- Students can take ownership of their own learning and track their progress.
- Teachers can mark down when they have taught each standard, easily seeing what still needs to be taught or spiraled.
- Teachers can use the single-standard pages to see their students’ progress in one place. Use these checklists to quickly create small groups based on ability.
The pages have four columns for each standard. In these columns, students put the date and their assessment of where they are for each standard. (1 = Beginning, 2 = Emerging, 3 = Proficient, 4 = Advanced) You can have students revisit the standards so they can reassess their progress.
