The CGI Number Facts Strategies Assessment (Levi & Jaslow, 2012) is a short, interview-based assessment of student fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  The Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics view Number and Operations and Algebraic Thinking as a unified domain, and assessing student strategies towards fluency helps teachers and students make these connections. The Progress Monitoring Collegial Team Meeting will provide participants with materials for using the Levi CGI Assessment and experience administering the assessment questions and tracking student scores and growth.
This CTM consists of one half-day session and two one-hour virtual follow-up sessions.

DATES: 

1. Tuesday, October 23, 2018 (12:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST) at the Fayette Professional Learning Center
2. Monday, January 14 - one hour VIRTUAL follow-up meeting

What is proportional reasoning? How can we support students in developing a conceptual understanding of fractions? How can we support students in reasoning proportionally without relying on rules or procedures? 
These questions and many more will be explored through an online, year-long book study of Teaching Fractions and Ratios for Understanding: Essential Content Knowledge and Instructional Strategies by Susan Lamon.  All required professional literature will be provided for participants.
 
Participants will meet virtually for one-hour meetings on selected Mondays at 4:30 pm ET one or two times per month. Between meetings, participants will be expected to complete reading assignments from the text, work problems and, occasionally, collect examples of student work. Participants should be prepared to submit pictures of their own or their students’ work for discussion purposes. Participants should plan to spend at least 1-2 hours per week.
 
This course is intended for 4th, 5th and 6th grade teachers. Teachers of 7th and 8th grade students may participate but the content standards of 4th, 5th and 6th grades will be the focus.

Foundations for Primary Grades Mathematics cohorts are professional learning communities that grow second and third grade teachers’ understanding of effective ways to scaffold and differentiate instruction to better accommodate student needs via a learning climate that welcomes questions, opinions and participation of all students.  Members will focus on how to select instructional tasks that encourage mathematical discourse and help students conceptually understand place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions.  Participants receive specialized training from an experienced facilitator featuring evidence-based strategies and materials from experts in early numeracy development.  Community members provide support to each educator as new strategies and methods are utilized in the classroom.

Participant Requirements:
-Must be a second or third grade classroom teacher.
-Attend and fully participate in all in-person meetings.

KCM's Foundations for Intermediate Teachers (Grades 3-5) is a 4-day professional learning event for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers, and is aligned to research-based teaching practices and KAS; topics will include number, place value, operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) and early algebraic reasoning.
 
Participants will:
  • Identify Big Ideas embedded in elementary Kentucky Academic Standards with a focus on standards in the domains: Operations and Algebraic Thinking, and Number and Operations in Base Ten.
  • Explore tasks, visuals and contexts designed to support student understanding of numbers and number operations
  • Use instructional strategies to improve critical thinking, problem solving, and classroom discourse
  • Receive resources such as manipulatives, ready-made activities, books, etc.
Participants should be Kentucky 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade educators. Teachers who work with 6th grade students are welcome, but the content focus will be on intermediate grades.

Participants may wish to also attend one of the following PLEs: Explorations in Third Grade Fractions or Explorations in Fractions for Grades 4 & 5.

MAF TEACHERS: This course does NOT count towards the additional 2 days of KCM training required to meet MAF Grant requirements for Plus 2 Intermediate teachers. 

DATES:
Session 1: Monday & Tuesday, January 7 & 8, 2019 (8:30 am - 3:30 pm EST both days)
Session 2: Monday & Tuesday, February 4 & 5, 2019 (8:30 am - 3:30 pm EST both days)

What is proportional reasoning? How can we support students in developing a conceptual understanding of fractions? How can we support students in reasoning proportionally without relying on rules or procedures? 
These questions and many more will be explored through an online, year-long book study of Teaching Fractions and Ratios for Understanding: Essential Content Knowledge and Instructional Strategies by Susan Lamon.  All required professional literature will be provided for participants.
 
Participants will meet virtually for one-hour meetings on selected Mondays at 4:30 pm ET one or two times per month. Between meetings, participants will be expected to complete reading assignments from the text, work problems and, occasionally, collect examples of student work. Participants should be prepared to submit pictures of their own or their students’ work for discussion purposes. Participants should plan to spend at least 1-2 hours per week.
 
This course is intended for 4th, 5th and 6th grade teachers. Teachers of 7th and 8th grade students may participate but the content standards of 4th, 5th and 6th grades will be the focus.
 
Cost: Free!

Intermediate grades are a critical time in which students are expected to develop an understanding of fractions as numbers and make sense of fraction operations. During this two-day session, teachers will explore instructional strategies such as use of manipulatives, fraction models(including number lines) and rich tasks. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the fourth and fifth grade fractions standards, seeing them as part of a progression starting in first grade and continuing to middle school.

Participants will be provided with a variety of books and manipulatives.  

Date: Tuesday & Wednesday,, February 5 & 6, 2019
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (CST)
Cost: $200.00 per participant

Third grade is a critical year in which students should develop strong foundations for understanding fractions. During this session, teachers will explore hands-on activities and tasks designed to support students in developing conceptual understandings of fractions as numbers. Teachers will deepen their understanding of the third grade fractions standards, seeing them as part of a progression starting in first grade and continuing into middle school. Participants will leave with prepared materials and manipulatives sufficient for work with a small group, including fraction squares, Cuisenaire rods and KNPIG activities.

Date: Thursday, February 7, 2019
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (EST)
Cost: $100.00 per participant

Foundations for Primary Grades Mathematics cohorts are professional learning communities that grow second and third grade teachers’ understanding of effective ways to scaffold and differentiate instruction to better accommodate student needs via a learning climate that welcomes questions, opinions and participation of all students.  Members will focus on how to select instructional tasks that encourage mathematical discourse and help students conceptually understand place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions.  Participants receive specialized training from an experienced facilitator featuring evidence-based strategies and materials from experts in early numeracy development.  Community members provide support to each educator as new strategies and methods are utilized in the classroom.

Participant Requirements:
-Must be a second or third grade classroom teacher.
-Attend and fully participate in all in-person meetings.
