Reading Target I can use information gained from illustrations (e.g., maps, photographs) and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (e.g., where, when, why, and how key events occur)..
Language Target I know the meaning of common prefixes and suffixes and how they change the meaning of the root word.
Math Target : I can tell what I know about fractions on a pretest. I can write what I notice about fractions as I explore fraction circles and bars. I can understand a fraction as the quantity formed by 1 part of a whole. I can explain any unit fraction as one part of a whole. I can explain that a numerator as being the numbers of parts and the denominator as the total number of equal parts in the whole. I can take a given fraction and tell what the numerator and denominator mean in that fraction.
Writing Target: I can determine an opinion about a topic and tell reasons that support the opinion. I can create an organizational structure for listing reasons for the opinion. I can select appropriate linking words and phrases to connect ideas. I can plan and write a concluding statement.
Social Studies: I can define economic terms: barter, scarcity, opportunity cost, wants, needs, human resources, capital resources, natural resources, specialization, goods, services, consumer, producer, profit, supply, demand, and interdependence.
