PBIS
23
What is PBIS?
  • The application of evidence-based strategies and
    systems to assist schools
  • to increase academic performance
  • increase safety
  • decrease problem behavior and establish positive
    school cultures

24
PBIS Big Ideas
  • Positive Behavior Support is a process for
    teaching children appropriate behavior and
    providing the supports necessary to sustain that
    behavior.
  • PBIS is not a curriculum - it is a framework for
    systems to identify needs, develop strategies,
    and evaluate practice toward success

25
Why PBIS?
  • PBIS helps reduce challenging student behavior
    through a proactive, positive, and consistent
    manner across ALL school settings.
  • Additionally, it helps improve academic
    achievement and social competence.

26
CODE OF CONDUCT

Grade Level Incentives

    throughout the school for displaying appropriate
    behaviors

Consistent Consequences

  • Chronic behavior will result in a support room or
    office referral.

    involvement such as fighting, using
    inappropriate language, harassment, threats, and
    possession of contraband or weapons.

34
Mathematically Speaking Newsletters
  • Inside your childs Math Resource Folder, you
    will find a plastic page protector. This page
    protector will house all of our Mathematically
    Speaking Newsletters.
  • The Mathematically Speaking Newsletters are a
    tool we use to communicate with parents about the
    curriculum expectations and standards. These
    newsletters will include parent-friendly language
    and examples.

35
Online Resource for Parents at Home
  • Carroll County Teachers with the help of Donn
    Hicks (Elementary Mathematics Supervisor) have
    made this resource to help parents at home.
  • http//video.carrollk12.org/ElementaryMath
  • X-tra Math is a basic fact website that you will
    be receiving a letter about in the future to help
    your child practice his/her basic facts.

36
STEM Data Binder
  • Means of tracking student progress
  • Way for student to take ownership in his/her
    learning
  • Form of communication with parents
  • Periodically you might see a label in your
    childs data binder with an updated grade.
    Please contact your childs STEM teacher if you
    have any questions or concerns.
  • In the data binder you will find a bright piece
    of cardstock that says New STEM Data. This
    divider will mark the new work samples in the
    data binder.
  • Work in the data binder is used when determining
    report card grades
  • STEM Data Binder Samples will include
  • Unit Check-Ups (Post Tests)
  • Quizzes and Basic Fact Quizzes

37
STEM Grading Policy
  • Work in the data binder is used when determining
    report card grades
  • Math report card grades consist of an average of
    all of the samples in the STEM Data Binder
  • When determining an overall letter grade, the
    specific indicators are used.
  • At the top of each assessment, you will find an
    indicator box that includes what your child has
    earned for each of the included report card
    indicators as well as an overall letter grade.
  • Fact fluency is an indicator on the report card
    but it is not used to determine the overall
    letter grade.

38
STEM Grading
  • Tests Quizzes from the data binder.
  • Grading Scale
  • 90 - 100 ? O A
  • 80 - 89 ? S B
  • 70 - 79 ? S C
  • 60 - 69 ? N D

40
What about high ability learners?
In Grades K-5, CCPS teachers will utilize the
Progression Documents to meet the needs of our
high ability students.
41
Flexible Groupings
  • This year in math we will be using flexible
    groups to meet the needs of all students. This
    means depending on the concept or skill your
    child may work in a different math group or
    classroom.
  • We will assess the childrens knowledge and Ms.
    Warner and Mrs. Gonnella will make groups to meet
    the needs of all learners.
  • SO just because your child is currently assigned
    to one of our classes this does not mean that
    they will not be working with both of us.

42
Fact Practice
  • Your child will bring home a Basic Fact Bag each
    night. Please help your child review his/her
    facts at least three times per week.
  • The facts that your child will practice will
    include any addition and subtraction not yet
    mastered as well as all of the multiplication
    division facts to 100.

43
Science
  • Living Things
  • Road Trip Through Maryland
  • STEM Unit A work in Process
  • Physical Science

44
Ways to contact us with ANY questions or concerns
  • Good times to call us before school (800-845),
    during planning (1130-1215), or after school
    (400-415)
  • Written notes or notes on the homework

Strive for 25
  • Students who read daily will grow as readers and
    be much more successful when reading
  • Students read books on their independent reading
    level.
  • Students will write a brief letter discussing
    their reading
  • Teachers will be sure that students are selecting
    books appropriate for their reading level
  • Please be sure your child brings a book to school
    every day

53
Word Study Homework
  • Students will have nightly word study homework
    that will consist of different engaging
    activities that reinforce spelling
    patterns/syllable types taught through our
    Fundations phonics instruction. A parent letter
    will go home at the beginning of each new unit
    with the attached homework activities.

54
Cursive Handwriting
Why teach cursive? Fluent, spontaneous
handwriting makes more working memory available
to focus on higher level thinking. The lack of
an automatic command of handwriting can inhibit a
student's ability to write, affect his self
confidence and encourage him to avoid writing,
55
Data Binders
  • Means of tracking student progress
  • Form of communication with parents
  • Way for student to take ownership in his/her
    learning

56
Data Binders

  • Wonders assessments
  • Writing pieces
  • Responses to texts
  • Graded class work
  • Social Studies assessments
  • Fundations assessments
