This 8-day learning opportunity is designed for classroom, special education and mathematics intervention teachers of students in Grades K-2.  Participants will engage in varied instructional strategies, and will acquire tools to assess, support, and advance students' mathematical reasoning and knowledge. Aligned to research-based teaching practices and KAS, topics will include counting and cardinality, number and operations, early algebraic reasoning, conceptual place value, measurement and data, and math/literature connections.  Participants will receive books, activities and instructional materials, along with assessment strategies to identify and target student needs and misconceptions in early numeracy.

As this is an intensive professional learning experience, participants will be expected to attend all 8 dates of this course.

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.
-Complete required readings and assignments.
-Reflect on practice and be prepared to share thoughts with others.
-Must provide feedback on surveys and evaluation forms.

Multiplicative reasoning in grades 4 & 5 builds on strategies and understandings developed in third grade. For example, students might use what they know about 5x7 to solve 5x70 or 5x69. But how do we support students in making these connections? Number talks and problem strings provide learners with opportunities to develop relational reasoning, a deeper understanding of the distributive and commutative properties, and extend these understandings to work with multi-digit and rational numbers.

Participants will be provided with books and instructional materials.

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.

Multiplicative reasoning in grades 4 & 5 builds on strategies and understandings developed in third grade. For example, students might use what they know about 5x7 to solve 5x70 or 5x69. But how do we support students in making these connections? Number talks and problem strings provide learners with opportunities to develop relational reasoning, a deeper understanding of the distributive and commutative properties, and extend these understandings to work with multi-digit and rational numbers.

Participants will be provided with books and instructional materials.

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.

This 8-day learning opportunity is designed for classroom, special education and mathematics intervention teachers of students in Grades K-2.  Participants will engage in varied instructional strategies, and will acquire tools to assess, support, and advance students' mathematical reasoning and knowledge. Aligned to research-based teaching practices and KAS, topics will include counting and cardinality, number and operations, early algebraic reasoning, conceptual place value, measurement and data, and math/literature connections.  Participants will receive books, activities and instructional materials, along with assessment strategies to identify and target student needs and misconceptions in early numeracy.

As this is an intensive professional learning experience, participants will be expected to attend all 8 dates of this course.

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.
-Complete required readings and assignments.
-Reflect on practice and be prepared to share thoughts with others.
-Must provide feedback on surveys and evaluation forms.

Cost: FREE

This professional learning experience will provide an opportunity to share thoughts, experiences and ideas with other teachers and interested educators while experiencing a school-wide culture of learning.  The experience will include the opportunity to observe students as active learners in problem-centered mathematics lessons across grade levels and discuss the potential of such lessons for deep student learning.  Debriefing discussions will focus on how and why different schools might implement effective mathematics lessons structured around rich mathematics problems.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to (i) participate in discussions of the co-planning process that led to the observed lessons, (ii) involve other colleague(s) at your school in your own co-planning process to design a problem centered mathematics lesson intended to help students make sense of math concepts and (iii) share and discuss your experience with other participants.

Cost: Free!
Audience:  Elementary teachers, middle school teachers, teacher leaders, coaches, administrators

Location: Freedom Elementary (Bullitt County)
Session Dates: October 10 & December 12
Session Time: 8:00-3:00 ET
