2 Vision & Mission Our Vision Our Mission At Kellogg School, we are preparing all children to be successful leaders and learners with a solid foundation of skills and knowledge. We want to create an equitable, inclusive, collaborative and safe learning environment that is built on strong family and community partnerships, where all children will thrive. We believe that a diversified education is critical in laying a solid foundation for international mindedness and life-long learning.Our MissionAll will develop skills needed to become resourceful, productive learners through a strong commitment and partnership between schools and parents. Our students’ academic performance will be enhanced through our rigorous instructional program and educational opportunities, which will result in increasing the number of students meeting and exceeding Illinois Common Core Standards.

6 Kellogg CIWP Goals1. CCSS Literacy: Through the use of the Optimal Learning Model and following their literacy block, teachers will increase rigorous English Language Arts instruction following the Common Core State Standards.2. CCSS Math: Differentiation of instruction and professional development to increase mathematical rigor following the CCSS.3. CCSS Science: Upon implementation of the New Generation Science Standards (NGSS) continue to increase the use of inquiry modules for instruction at each grade level.4. CCSS IB: Increase staff and student knowledge and implementation of the IB Programme Next Chapter in order to maintain approved status.5. CCSS Arts: We will expand Arts instruction to all grade levels and build a strong investment in the arts both during and after school.

It has an adaptive engine to increase / decrease difficulty based on student progress.Format● Questions are formatted to appear as the questions would on the NWEA assessment as well as the PARCC assessment.Supportive● Stride provides skill remediation and enrichment through skills practice questions, instructional video lessons and printable, offline study guides.Automated Reporting● Teachers are automatically ed student data results to allow for continuous monitoring of student progress
14 New this year for Kellogg 6th, 7th and 8th grade students…
15 How Does it Work? Teachers assign leveled lessons Students read an informational text and complete assessments for comprehensionStudents then go back and highlight and annotate the text they readStudents then make claims, build arguments, collaborate, and write responsesStudents then receive feedback from teachers and other students
18 Kellogg’s Powerful Practice for ELA 2014 ANNOTATION Annotation is a tool to engage with text. It is a strategy that is best used with challenging text that may be difficult to read and understand.
19 Annotation is a strategy where student’s mark on the actual text using a set of symbols. We have developed a set of “Kellogg” annotation symbols that we are beginning to use on a school-wide basis.
20 Kellogg’s Annotation Symbols This strategy to improve critical reading skills looks very different depending upon the grade/age of the student.
21 In the upper grades, we often use this in conjunction with close reading. When a student reads text the first time, they are reading to find out why. Reading the same text again using the annotation tool provides an opportunity to have the student identify text examples which they do not know, or they made a connection with, or have additional questions about, or identify the main idea.
22 Each teacher at Kellogg School has a selected two novels for each student to use for annotation purposes during this school year. Ask your child about how they are using this powerful practice!
27 Mathematics Standards Common CoreMathematics StandardsThe Common Core concentrates on a clear set of math skills and concepts. Students learn concepts in a more organized way both during the school year and across grades. The standards encourage students to solve real-world problems.
28 Daily Rigor Math Talks MARS tasks The math teachers at Kellogg, from the primary grades to the upper grades, plan learning experiences to ensure each student is being taught a rigorous curriculum.Two of the most commonly utilized mathematic activities that we will share this evening areMath TalksMARS tasksDaily Rigor
29 Math Talks are designed to be completed as a 10-minute daily ritual with the entire class. Their purpose is developing conceptual understanding of and efficiency with numbers, operations, and mathematics, as well as building positive habits of dialogue and discourse in the classroom community. Math Talks develop flexibility and fluency with numbers and promote multiple approaches to solving problems.Math Talks
30 You are stuck in traffic and you only travel 5 miles in 20 minutes You are stuck in traffic and you only travel 5 miles in 20 minutes. How many miles can you travel in half an hour at this rate?19 x 21 = ?Dominique bought an iPod for 40% off the original price and paid $54.

31 Mathematics Assessment Resource Service tasks are Common Core aligned performance- based assessments that make students’ knowledge and reasoning visible.They are intended to be used formatively and play an integral role in uncovering student misconceptions, as well as inform instruction. These assessments are performance-based and offer opportunities for teachers to assess a deeper conceptual understanding of the mathematics content being taught throughout the school year.MARS Tasks
32 Janice is making necklaces with colored beads Janice is making necklaces with colored beads. She makes them into square patterns like this:Complete the table below.MARS Tasks Examples# of SquaresLong BeadsRound Beads142738
33 Explain how you figured out how many long beads are needed to make 4 and 8 squares. Explain how you figured out how many round beads are needed to make 4 and 8 squares.Janice uses 37 long beads to make some squares.a. How many squares does she make? Show your work.b. How many round beads will she need to make these squares?Write a rule or an algebraic formula for finding the total number of round and long beads, B, Janice needs to make n squares.(continued)
34 MARS Task Example Bracelets Kindergarten Abby is making bracelets. She finished making 3 bracelets. She needs to make 8 bracelets to give one to each friend.TASK AHow many more bracelets does Abby need to make? ____ braceletsShow how you solved this problem. Use pictures, numbers, and words.MARS Task ExampleKindergarten
35 MARS Task Example Grade 3 KITCHEN TILES Austin’s mom is getting a new kitchen. The worker is making the counter with square tiles. The worker has just started working.TASK AHow many tiles will it take in all to make this counter? EXPLAIN how you figured it out.MARS Task ExampleGrade 3
36 MARS Task Example Grade 3 TASK BIf the worker decides to make another counter that is 5 tiles wide and 6 tiles long how many tiles will they need to make that counter?Draw a picture of this counter showing all the tiles.Write a number sentence to show how many tiles are in the new counter.EXPLAIN how you figured it out.MARS Task ExampleGrade 3
37 What is the common trend? Across all grade levels the shift toward mastery of the common core standards requires students to demonstrate their mathematical thinking by not only showing their work; but having the ability to communicate in writing what they did to solve and why.
38 International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme Kellogg School has been an authorized IB Middle Years Programme school since Since that time the program has evolved and changed. The IB MYP has just finished an extensive review of all the components and implementation of all the new requirements began September 1, 2014 for all schools.Key Considerations:All teachers are required to be trained under the new requirements. Five teachers have already been trained, five more are registered for Fall/Winter training and the remaining teachers will be trained by the end of 2015.
39 Promoting the use of the IB Learner Profile traits school-wide. Morning announcements share ideas of ways students can develop and expand these traits of good citizens.Preparing for the October 2015 evaluation visit to maintain authorized status.Parent leadership team8th grade students Community projectsIntroducing the 5th grade students to some of the MYP activities to improve transition to the programme in the 6th grade.
