When you go to the store with your grown ups, you see boxes with Taki's in them. You sneak 2 boxes into the cart. Each box has 3 bags of Takis. Each bag contains 6 takis. How many takis total are you going to buy?
2 X (3 X 6). 3x 6 = 18 and 18 is the number of takis in each box. 18 takis x 2 boxes = 36 takis total. You would buy 36 takis.

You have several students reading below grade level in your class. How will you support their literacy development and give them access to grade level content and skills?
I will provide access to grade level content for striving readers in many ways. One way is through read aloud. Students' listening comprehension is stronger than when they have to decode because the cognitive load is less so they can practice comprehension and thinking skills with more complex texts when it is read aloud. Students may use assistive technology tools like text to speech to access text. I may also utilize partner reading and pair students with a more capable partner to help them access the text and develop their reading fluency,
