  • I can generate and analyze patterns.

  • I can multiply and divide within 100.

  • I can generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.

  • I can use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

  • I can extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

  • I can build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.

  • I understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions.

  • I can solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.

  • I can represent and interpret data.

  • Geometric measurement: I understand concepts of angle and measure angles.

  • I can draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.


  • ​I can explain and use figurative language, including identifying word relationships and nuances in word meanings, when reading, writing and speaking.

  • I can cite specific evidence to support my claim ( add to how--summarizing, theme, inference) when responding to text.

  • I can use feedback from my peers and adults when writing, creating, and speaking


  • ​I can prove that the faster something moves, the more energy it has and predict what happens when two objects hit each other

  • I can design, build, or improve a device that shows how energy moves in different ways and how energy changes from one form to another.

  • I can research how all fuel energy is derived from natural sources and show the effects harvesting energy has on the environment

  • I can build a model of a wave that shows its height and width and prove that waves make things move and sends information in patterned codes.

  • I can build a model showing how eyes can see things: light bounces off an object and enters the pupil of the eye.

  • I can make an argument explaining how both inside parts and outside parts help plants and animals survive.

  • I can model showing animals using their five senses to absorb information, think through it, and then act in the best way.

  • I can compare the types of fossils in different rock layers and explain how the variation in species could mean the landscape changed over time.

  • I can observe, measure, and analyze the erosion caused by water, ice, wind, and plants and find patterns of erosion on the Earth’s surface using a map.

  • I can come up with different ways to protect humans from natural events.
