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


Agenda

AGENDA

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 routine1

    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.


    Implementation of a fluency routine2

    Implementation of a Fluency Routine

    • 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

    • 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?

    Reflection on Preparation and Implementation


    Grade k 2

    Grade K-2

    Objective: Sums and Differences to 20

    Students will fluently add and subtract within 20.


    Modeling and practice fluency

    Modeling and Practice: Fluency

    Math Fingers Flash (Kinder)

    Making Ten (Grades 1/2)

    Add Ten and Some Ones (Grades 1/2)


    Modeling and practice fluency1

    Modeling and Practice: Fluency

    Say Ten Way (Grades 1/2)

    Overview of Fluency Activities in A Story of Units

    Modeling and Practice: Fluency

    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


    Reflection on preparation and implementation

    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.
