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 Mission All 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.

12 Parent & Teacher Data Conferences
October 20th-23rd

13 Stride Academy Alignment ● Stride uploads NWEA data to target curriculum based on students individual strengths and weaknesses. 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 comprehension Students then go back and highlight and annotate the text they read Students then make claims, build arguments, collaborate, and write responses Students 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 Core Mathematics Standards The 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 are Math Talks MARS tasks Daily 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. How much money did she save? Which is larger? √ 70 or 9 Math Talk Examples Input Output 10 -15 5 -5 1 3 What is the function for this table?

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 Squares Long Beads Round Beads 1 4 2 7 3 8

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 A How many more bracelets does Abby need to make? ____ bracelets Show how you solved this problem. Use pictures, numbers, and words. MARS Task Example Kindergarten

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 A How many tiles will it take in all to make this counter? EXPLAIN how you figured it out. MARS Task Example Grade 3

36 MARS Task Example Grade 3
TASK B If 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 Example Grade 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 team 8th grade students Community projects Introducing the 5th grade students to some of the MYP activities to improve transition to the programme in the 6th grade.

40 Behaving the Kellogg Way Responsible, Respectful, Safe and Kind
PBIS Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a systemic approach to proactive, school-wide behavior. PBIS applies evidence-based programs, practices and strategies for all students to increase academic performance, improve safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish a positive school culture.  Behaving the Kellogg Way Responsible, Respectful, Safe and Kind
