Need a great way to jumpstart your math period? Looking for strategies that promote accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and communication in math? Number Talks is what you have been looking for. The focus of this training is to increase student engagement through communication around mental math in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Number Talks provide a structure to promote a safe community for learners while engaging in 5-15 minute conversations around the area of whole number operations. We will explore: designing purposeful conversations, posing good questions, following student thinking, recording that thinking to make it visible for all students, and the connection to the eight math practices from the KCCRS. We will spend time practicing these techniques and viewing examples of Number Talks in action. Participants will leave with Renee’s Number Talks book with sample lessons and a DVD of various teachers and students using Number Talks in actual instruction. (Title III funds may be used for this training.) More

Renee’ Smith (2,5) Elementary & Middle Need a great way to jumpstart your math period? Want ways to promote accuracy, efficiency, flexibility and communication in math? Number talks may be just what you have been looking for. The focus of this training is to increase student engagement through communication around mental math. Number talks provide a structure to promote a safe community for learners while engaging in 5-15 minute conversations around the concepts and operations of fractions, decimals, and percents. Topics that will be explored are: designing purposeful conversations, posing good questions, following student thinking, recording that thinking to make it visible for all students, and the connection to the 8 math practices from the KCCRS. Time will be spent practicing these techniques and viewing examples of number talks in action. Participants will leave with the number talks book which includes sample lessons and a DVD of various teachers and students engaged in this practice. Title III funds may be used for this training.

When teachers engage in differentiated small group instruction, students learn content through a variety of processes, resources, and at a pace appropriate for learning to occur. Small group instruction is common in most primary classrooms, raising two critical questions: How will I successfully manage a station framework? AND What resources can I use that don't require hours of preparation? Don't miss this opportunity to experience a station framework that allows students to demonstrate independence and perseverance by moving when a task is completed, rather than transitioning with a timer. Participants will experience BOTH literacy and math station tasks aligned to the KCCRS for grades K-2. An added bonus: Participants will receive six sets of task cards of their choice that are ideal for guided instruction as well as station activities.

Renee Smith (1, 2,5) Elementary Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is a problem-solving mathematics program designed to improve number sense and computation for students in Kindergarten through fifth grades. This instructional practice increases the rigor and relevance of mathematics and is closely aligned to the eight Mathematical Practice Standards from the KCCRS. CGI is proven effective for boys and girls of diverse social class, racial, ethnic, and language proficiency backgrounds. It also provides a strong foundation for developing cognitive and technical skills in middle and high school students. NCTM past president, Mary Lindquist, describes the impact of CGI, "In recognizing how students develop mathematically, you may find yourself asking questions . . . You will begin to rethink who can learn mathematics and what it means to learn mathematics . . . You will begin to rethink how you teach mathematics . . ." Participation will be limited to 30 participants. Title III funds may be used for this training. More
