RL.3.1 Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers. RI.3.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 x 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 x7. Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8. Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
All students in 1st through 5th grade participate in a school-wide reading program called Reading Counts. Students read books within their lexile range. After completing a book, students take a Reading Counts test and receive points for receiving a score of a least 70%. Every student is expected to reach 100 points by the end of the school year. Student progress towards their goals are monitored and students are recognized for their accomplishments throughout the school year.
