We havechosen objectives that are the most heavily weighted on AIMS and are critical for students to master before promotion to fourth grade.Linking performance objectives are scaffolded to guide the students towards mastery of priority objective(s). Each quarter the performance objectives arespiraled and clustered according to the complexity of the objectives in order to introduce concepts and promote student mastery. *Each cluster wasdesigned to take about a week to compute
  2. 2. 3rd Grade Reading Curriculum Map Isaac School District No. 5As a team, we have determined a number of recurring concepts and performance objectives that are to be integrated throughout the year tosupport student mastery.
