A Story of Units

Fluency in Practice

session objectives
Session Objectives
  • Revisit yesterday’s module in order to further examine the lesson component of Fluency in preparation to:
  • Model, teach, and practice the instructional routines that will support implementation of A Story of Units
  • Differentiate according to the needs of diverse learners and varied student populations in any given district, school, or classroom

Implementation of a Fluency Program

Overview of Fluency Activities in A Story of Units

Modeling and Practice: Fluency

Differentiation in Fluency Activities

Reflection on Preparation and Implementation

implementation of a fluency routine
Implementation of a Fluency Routine
  • Fluency activities serve a variety of purposes:
      • Maintenance: Staying sharp on previously learned skills
      • Preparation: Targeted practice for the current lesson
      • Anticipation: Building skills to prepare students for the in-depth work of future lessons
  • In fluency work, all students are actively engaged with familiar content. This provides a daily opportunity for continuous improvement and individual success.

Implementation of a Fluency Routine
  • As you begin to implement fluency routines in your classrooms, you can improve this experience by:
  • Making deliberate choices.
  • Investing in building the routine.
  • Including fewer types of exercises.
  • Starting with simpler content.

  • What concerns do you have about implementing a fluency program as you introduce A Story of Units?
  • What steps can we take to overcome these concerns our group has identified?

fluency exercises in a story of units
Fluency Exercises in A Story of Units
  • Three general categories of fluency work support student learning in A Story of Units:
  • Counting Exercises
  • Choral and White Board Exchanges
  • Sprints
key foundational skills in a story of units module 1
Key Foundational Skills in A Story of Units Module 1
  • K – Counting to 5, counting consecutively, and recognizing numerals
  • 1 – Counting a set of objects or pictures and assigning a numeral, and counting on in a number sequence
  • 2 – Adding and subtracting units such as tens and centimeters, and using rulers to count, add, and subtract
  • 3 – Group counting (skip counting) to lay the foundation for
  • understanding multiplication as repeated addition
  • 4 – Multiplying and dividing by 10, and decomposing numbers into units
  • 5 – Renaming decimals in various place value units (3.14 = 3 ones 14 hundredths = 31 tenths 4 hundredths = 314 hundredths)
module 1 fluency exercises
Module 1 Fluency Exercises
  • What are the foundational skills of this module? How do you see these skills reflected in the fluency exercises?
  • What do you notice about the sequence of exercises? How is the complexity increasing?
  • How would you categorize the fluency exercises by goals? (maintenance, preparation, anticipation)
  • How do specific fluency exercises bridge from the math content in previous lessons and prepare students for success in this lesson?

Differentiation in Fluency Practice

Reflection on Preparation and Implementation

differentiation in fluency practice
Differentiation in Fluency Practice
  • How might you modify fluency exercises in order to meet the needs of a specific population, including:
  • English language learners
  • Students above grade level
  • Students below grade level
  • Students with learning disabilities
differentiation in fluency practice1
Differentiation in Fluency Practice
  • Some possibilities for adapting fluency exercises include:
  • Modeling with visual tools
  • Adapting the length and pace of exercise
  • Using content from lower or higher grades
  • Varying between independent, partner, small group, and whole class activities
implementation
Implementation
  • Select one of the mathematical concepts addressed in Module 1 of your selected grade level.
  • Consider the needs of one of the specific groups of students that you serve.
  • Design a fluency exercise to support student learning of the selected mathematical concept.

Reflection on Preparation and Implementation
  • Take a minute to reflect on what you have learned about implementing a fluency program and differentiating fluency exercises in order to meet the needs of the diverse learners that you serve.
  • How will you use what you have learned today?
key points
Key Points
  • Fluency exercises provide essential practice so that students will be more successful in each lesson, as well as an energetic start to every day.
  • Carefully introducing students to fluency exercises at the beginning of the school year is an investment in their success throughout the year.
  • Deliberate choices, including considering the key foundational fluencies for each module and the specific needs of your students, will go a long way towards your students’ learning.
