WHAT READING SKILLS IS MY CHILD LEARNING IN THIRD GRADE?

  • Academic Milestones are key academic skills that students need to develop at each grade.

  • The literacy milestones are critical literacy skills that build on each other and prepare students for achievement in the next grade and beyond.

  • These literacy milestones come from OUSD's Academic Milestones, but are based on California grade level standards and are applicable for a child at any school.
