Recap - 4th Grade Math PLC

Skill Based Centers

Thank you!

First of all, thank you so much for meeting with me today to review the results from the Computational Fluency Screeners. As well, thanks for watching the video before the meeting, and for the clarifying questions you had! Your questioning made me think of things I hadn't thought of clarifying, so I appreciate your level of trust to ask questions :D

As you know, the Skill Based Centers Project will be implemented starting on January. This project will also be part of my Campus Action Project with Ed-Fellows, so if you haven't filled out the survey that I sent you yesterday, please do at your earliest convenience:

Your information is anonymous, and the results will be used for research purposes.

Today we decided to use the following activities for the Skill Based Centers:

Multiplication Facts 0,1,2,5,10

Multiply it!

Missing Numbers: Multiplication

Multiplication Four in a Row

Multiplication Challenge

Multiplication Facts 3,4,6

Same as above, plus Multiples of 3,4,6

Multiplication Facts 7,8,9

Same titles as above.

Today I finalized some upper level screeners with a few of your students, I will update the rosters and share with you the results via Google Docs.

Next Week's PLC

I was planning on meeting next week with you to review the activities for the following levels, but since we will have a Data Meeting on Friday (12/12/14), I will choose the activities. Regardless, I would like to hear your feedback, so I will give the activities to Mr. Fitz so you guys can review them when you can. We can meet the week before the winter break.

Also, I would love to hear your feedback on the S.M.A.R.T. goal in this Computational Fluency Project, especially regarding the number of levels go grow:

"By March 6, 2015, 2-5 grade Silberstein Scholars will increase at least 3 levels from the baseline as shown by the screener data from November-December, regarding Math Computational Fluency; in the areas of addition and subtraction (2nd and 3rd grade), and multiplication and division (4th and 5th grade)".

Do you think 3 levels is a realistic/attainable goal? If not, what would you say it is?

You can give me your feedback on our next meeting, or email me, whichever is your preference.
