LAFS, MAFS, & NGSSS “I Can” Student Checklists for 4th Grade
ELA, Math, Science, & Social Studies
These are student checklists that cover the new Florida standards for all 4 core subjects: ELA, math, science, and social studies.
These files were created so that students could take ownership of their own learning and track their progress. These checklists summarize the new Florida LAFS and MAFS standards, as well as the NGSSS standards, in kid-friendly “I can” statements.
In our school, we are using student data folders. If you have these folders, you could add these pages for each student. If you do not, you could either staple these pages together to make a booklet – a cover page is included – or place them inside a pronged folder.
Many of the standards are repeated for both reading and math. When possible, I made the “I can” statement general enough to cover the different versions of the standard.
I have four columns for each standard. In these columns students put the date and their assessment of where they are for each standard. (B for beginner, I for intermediate, and M for master.) You can have students revisit the standards so they can reassess themselves. I do goal setting at the beginning of every quarter, so I am going to have students look at these standards when we do that.
My teammate has students mark off each standard as it is taught, so that is another way to have students assess their progress.
These checklists coordinate with the “I Can” Posters 4th Grade LAFS MAFS NGSSS Core Classes Florida Standards.
The posters and checklists are also available in a bundle.
