That graphic must drive our instruction daily. Power visual for us to live by.
Kentucky folks-- this is embedded right in our standards!
doubling 6 and adding 1 more
They may use doubles plus 1
Counting to make 10
knowing 3 + 3 and 7, making 10
Phase 2: Double 7 and subtract 1
Pretend a ten is my new favorite phrase since the conference
doubling is something that was never suggested when I was a kid
I love that they are called... Flexible Learning Progressions. Adding the word flexible makes all the difference.
I learned some of this from last year's plus 2 teacher.
We use this order 0, 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 3, 6, 9, 4, 8, 7, 12
Start with zero and identify properties and then skip counting facts into doubles
because that is the way we have ALWAYS done it.............
Sprints in Engage
District requirement used as benchmark data
Some use them to identify kids for RTI.
"Easy" to monitor......
It's what some teacher's have always done and are comfortable with.
I think most who use them do so because they aren't sure of another efficient manner to get information
I used to be the timed multiplication teacher until I was plus 2 trained a few years ago. It never worked because they never really internalized the facts.
OOh-- this is the WORST to use for RTI...
Timed tests are not an accurate picture of what our students know and what strategies they are using to understand thier thinking.
Thats the way we were exposed to multiplication in school.
Because timed tests don't assess understanding!
Yes! love the journal writing piece
The suggestions for Journal writing in this book are wonderful!
Connecting language to mathematical understanding is SO important!
Yes, journal writing is something we use often
interviews is foreign to some reg ed teachers but they do it constantly in reading. Once they try it in math it is a game changer
The book has great formative assessments for classroom teachers to use. Ready-to-use. Love them!
I like the journal and can even see students making a Flipgrid video about their thinking.
Flip grid videos are a great tool for this!
Is there still a time limit for these other ways?
I like beginning with the story problems first!
When watching students play games, you can observe if they are answering quickly (e.g. within 3 seconds) or not. So the time is noted but students can have as much time as they need to answer.
Amy- we give more time while students are developing multiplicative understanding-- so strategies take a bit longer at first. But with some time-- it gets internalized and students are fluent.
The KCM website is amazing!! It's a great resource to teachers and parents I love the KNP activities by standards!
the importance of games
So I should only set a timer when I need to give a time test from the district?
We do a Parent University at our school in the fall and this is a GREAT topic to present
Love the idea of Parent University.
Amy - yes... although I'd try to push back on the requirement on a group timed test. The interview format allows for monitoring time without the same stress for the student.
planning on doing a book study focusing on this book this fall with my teachers 😊
Great ideas! Nice job Bonny!!!!
Thank you, Bonny!
I have it. I am half way through the book. I love it! I have learned some new ideas to use with my students. Thank you Bonny!!! Great presentation!!!
Thank you so much!!
I am off to another webinar. Thank you!
Thank you Bonny!
What is planned for next week?
Thank you for helping me see this differently without setting a timer. I'm ordering this book!
As always, I love all the great learning from my KCM friend, Bonnie! Thank you for all your sharing
This is a great overview of the book! Can't wait to use it!
We are targeting multiplication next week
Thanks for sharing the great information and resources.
Thank you Bonnie!
Thank you! I'm excited to share this book with our math teachers!
thanks great info!
Thank you, Bonny. I am so excited about sharing this book with the teachers at my school.
Great resource share! Yes the fundamentals are so important
Amy - Thank you for being so open about this! You'll love the book.
Thank you!! Finding alternative ways to assess basic facts is a must!!
Next Week is Developing Multiplicative Thinking!
I shared some ideas from this book this morning while in a PLC with my Kindergarten teachers. We were discussing fluency standards. Thanks for introducing me to this book.
Love this handout! Thank you!
Thank you Bonnie! I loved this overview. I'm excited to read this book.
Thanks for sharing Bonny! This looks like a great choice for our math committee's book study in the coming school year!!
I would like to convince my district to stop the time test or atleast limit them.
