Welcome to Third Grade Curriculum Night Our Goal is that by the end of the year all students will score a level 3 or 4 on the Math and Reading End of Grade Tests and will be ready for 4 th grade by showing at least 15% growth from Predictive Assessment 1 to Predictive Assessment 2.

Who? 48 states, the District of Columbia, and two territories have signed on to the Common Core State Standards Initiative
Standards Development Process College and career readiness standards developed in summer 2009 Based on the college and career readiness standards, K-12 learning progressions developed Multiple rounds of feedback from states, teachers, and feedback group and validation committee. Groups representing English language learners and students with disabilities were instrumental in developing the ELL and students with disabilities statements in the introduction to the standards.
Why is This Important for Students, Teachers, and Parents? Prepares students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and work Ensures consistent expectations regardless of a student’s zip code Provides educators, parents, and students with clear, focused learning targets.
Criteria for the Standards Fewer, clearer, and higher Aligned with college and work expectations Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society Based on evidence and research

PBIS-What is it? Positive Behavior Interventions and Support Proactive approach to school-wide discipline Promotes positive student and staff behavior Implemented consistently by staff and administration
Traditional vs. PBIS Traditional Focused on Problem behavior Goal to stop problem behavior through punishment PBIS Replace problem behavior with new skill Rewards appropriate behavior as it is being learned Teaches the concept of consequences both good and bad.
3 Year Implementation We are in year 2 During year 1 we established the Three R’s, jewels, coins, and treasure chests During year 2 we have defined office referrals, developed check-in-check out, began individual ticket system
Response to Instruction or RtI This year we will be working with the district as RtI pilot school This will offer us training in Reading Foundations and Math Foundations All students will participate in AIMS Web Screening Differentiation within the classroom, Pirate Time, and PBIS all help to support this model.
RtI is……. ( Pirate Time) Whole school working together Using resources and expertise to help all students Regular monitoring of success/needs Data driven instruction! Multi-step process High-quality, research-based instruction and interventions Varying levels of intensity Match interventions to student’s needs RtI
