West Irondequoit Central School District Brookview Bulletin Volume 6 www.westirondequoit.org Equal Opportunity Employer March 2015 Dear Brookview Families: Wow, it is March already and with March, I hope we see the return of warmer weather! There is always a lot of buzz around math instruction and why we have students show their mathematical thinking in multiple ways. To help answer this question, this month and in April I will highlight for you our work in the area of mathematics. When teaching mathematics our curriculum includes the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The eight practices include what, how and why mathematicians think deeply to achieve. These practices are: 1. Make sense of a problem and persevere in solving it; 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively; 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others; 4. Model with mathematics; 5. Use appropriate tools strategically; 6. Attend to precision; 7. Look for and make use of structure; 8. And, look for and express regularity and repeated reasoning. In the early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation, in the middle grades, a student may apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem, and a high school student might use geometry to solve a design problem. Mathematically proficient students can apply mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society and the workplace. The mathematical practice, number 4, Model with Mathematics, engages children thinking about math from the concrete to the abstract. Mathematically proficient students are metacognitive (reflect on their thinking). They are able to identify quantities in a contextual situation and use mathematical modeling to show relationships of those quantities. Students use their models to think about what they are analyzing, how they are determining relationships and drawing conclusions. Students interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation, then reflect and communicate whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if has not served its purpose. Math modeling is part of how mathematicians problem solve and how they analyze situations and variables, interpret and draw conclusions. The math modeling cycle requires mathematicians to redefine, reshape and reorder information in order to make decisions, problem solve and reflect. When a student is in the formulating step, he/she may be using manipulatives, creating and/or selecting a picture, geometric, graphical, tabular algebraic or statistical representations that describe relationships. This diagram represents the Model with mathematics and the modeling cycle: Melissa LeVesque if you're interested in purchasing a copy. Brookview's Open House is scheduled for March 25th, and PTSA will be serving ice cream to celebrate the event. Come see what your students have worked so hard on all year! Developing the depth of students’ thinking builds in mathematics beyond proficient; teaching them to be metacognitive of their learning is a basis for transfer (application to novel contexts). I encourage you to learn more about the mathematical practices through the EngageNY.com Web site. Sincerely, Michelle A. Cramer Principal PTSA News Calling all students, the annual Talent Show and Artistic Showcase is approaching!

The scouts are assigned classes to support. Their role is to assist in the safety of our students by making sure their classmates are acting in a responsible and respectful way as they enter the building. Each month six grade three students are selected to serve as safety scouts. The following third graders have been selected as safety scouts for the month of March because they consistently demonstrate the characteristics of Brookview’s Best. Please join us in congratulating: Aaron Cadirao Tyler Day Xavier Maldonado Shakeelah Davis William Foggett Corey Shattuck To all of our Brookview friends, please remember to be respectful and follow directions provided by our safety scouts. You will know that they are a safety scout because they will be wearing safety scout pinnies. Physical Education News Brian Maginn Dear Families, Over the past couple of weeks, we continued to explore our theme of lifelong fitness and the different ways we can improve our current fitness level. Our primary focus has been to gain a sound understanding of the four fitness components listed below: Cardiovascular Endurance - means exercising your heart and lungs for a long period of time. Muscular Endurance - means exercising different muscle groups for a long period time. Muscular Strength - means a short burst of power or exercising a muscle group for a short period of time. Flexibility - means a joints range of motion and performing different stretches can enhance ones flexibility. In order to further our understanding of the fitness components, students were provided with opportunities to participate in different fitness stations. Each station included a task card of specific exercises to be performed with the purpose of preparing for our fitness assessments. As always, please remind your children to bring proper footwear to p.e. class and feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have. Sincerely, Brian Maginn Physical Education Teacher [email protected] Kindergarten Orientation for the 2015-16 school year Kindergarten Orientation for the 2015 – 2016 school year will be held at the following schools from 7 - 8 p.m. You may attend any of the orientations regardless of which West Irondequoit School your child will attend. Seneca Briarwood Brookview Listwood Southlawn Colebrook February 24th February 26th March 2nd March 3rd March 4th March 5th headings, bold print, diagrams, maps, glossary, bibliography, and the index. Third graders will be studying Legends from around the world. They will begin with the Greek Myth, King Midas and the Golden Touch. Next, they will learn about the legends dealing with dragons and unicorns. We will discuss how myths about dragons and unicorns developed, what the different types of dragons and unicorns were in these legends, and how different cultures portray both dragons and unicorns. We will conclude with the legends, Saint George and the Dragon and The Unicorn and the Lake. Irish folktales will also be shared at all grade levels. Library Media News Mrs. Forties First graders will be comparing and contrasting different versions of the folktale, Rumpelstiltskin. These retellings of the traditional tale will include Rumpelstiltskin a German folktale, Tom Tit Tot an old English tale, The Three Spinning Fairies: a Tale from the Brothers Grimm, and The Girl Who Spun Gold a tale from the West Indies. The students will discuss the setting, characters, elements of magic and make-believe, patterns of three, and the problem and the solution in each story. Second graders will be learning how to use the text features in informational books. These features help students better comprehend information presented on a topic in a nonfiction book and in the World Book Encyclopedia Online. The text features they will be utilizing include the Table of Contents, photographs, picture captions, chapter Music Notes Mr. Rob Line We are continuing to have fun and expand upon our learning in music class during March! Here are some musical highlights from this month: 1st Grade: One of my favorite activities with the first graders in music during the month of March is reading the book “Drummer Hoff” – We read this book with a message of teamwork (and, of course, as the title suggests, we add some drums!) – Then, several students help to act as the different characters in the story! It’s a jam-packed music class, but we finish by acting out this fun story complete with a drumming accompaniment! Be sure to ask your first grader what their special job was during this performance! 2nd Grade: Second graders will perform a dance to the Irish song “Rakes of Mallow” to continue our work on musical form and distinguishing between two different sections of music. This is a partner dance where we will be pretending to cook some “Irish Stew” – I sure wish I had a class set of wooden spoons for them to click together and stir, but our rhythm sticks that we often use in class do the trick as well! Reminder: Annual Community Forum Monday, March 9 7:00 p.m. IHS Auditorium Issues Facing Teens: Alcohol and Other Drugs Social Media Learn from a panel of local experts. rd 3 Grade: The third graders have a very important month in music! We are spending a lot of time talking about different instruments and which families they belong to. This serves as preparation for a few weeks from now where all third graders will get a chance to choose an instrument for fourth grade instrumental music! Talk as a family and figure out which instruments might be best suited for your child – We hope that each student finds an instrument that they really enjoy and will continue playing for many years to come! Keep an eye out for more information on this coming soon from the fourth grade music teachers! Questions?

Follow the Foundation on: Home Connection: Supporting Writing Chrissy Miga, K-6 Director of Instruction Karyn Ryan, Supervisor of Student Services By this time of the year, you have probably already seen many instances of your child writing! Your child writes all throughout the day, no matter what grade level he or she may be in. As the amount of writing increases throughout the year and as your child moves through the grades, you might wonder about the best way to support your child at home so they can be a successful writer. First, especially with younger children, always remember the basics. It’s important that at a young age children understand the importance of capital letters and punctuation. Take a few extra minutes after they have completed their homework and be sure all capital letters and punctuation are appropriate. This simple check can establish a good habit within your child to always present their best work possible! As your child’s writing becomes more complex, you will want to help them edit and revise their sentence structure and content. At first your child may write in simple sentences with just a subject (who/noun) and predicate (what/verb). As your child becomes more comfortable with writing, encourage them to write more and more complex sentences. Use the graphic to the right to help build new sentences with your child. You can see how the sentence at the top of the pyramid (in green) is relatively simple compared to sentence at the bottom of the pyramid (in pink). continued on next page continued from previous page After your child has established solid sentence structure, you’ll then want to focus on the content of what they are writing. One simple idea to try at home is to have your child read aloud what they have written. Often our verbal comprehension is higher than our written or reading comprehension. By having your child read aloud their writing they may find an error in structure, spelling or content. By discussing with your child their word choice, you can expand their understanding and use for sophisticated vocabulary. Whether they are writing a fictional story or informational text, it is important that what they are writing makes sense and addresses the topic they have chosen to write about. One area where your child is probably doing a lot of writing these days is in response to a text they have read. There are a few very important things to consider when reviewing a child’s response to text. First, you should check to see if your child has truly answered the question or prompt. Have the child re-read the question and their answer to see if what was asked has been answered. This will also help you understand if your child really understood what they just read. If they’ve answered the question, then next you will want to see if they supported their answer with text details. When writing in response to a text, a student should always use multiple details right from that text to prove their answer. If your child answers the question, but does not offer proof, ask them how they knew the answer. You can have them locate directly in the text the evidence for their answer. Your child can then use this part of the text as the written evidence for their response. One last way to support your child’s writing is to immerse them in published work. Yes, it’s important to have your child read books to build their reading skills, develop comprehension, and strengthen their vocabulary knowledge, but you can also use books to help build your child’s understanding of the choices authors make as writers and specific writing styles. For example, Patricia Polacco’s books often use examples of author’s craft like personification or onomatopoeia. By immersing your child in her books and talking about the specific way Patricia Polacco writes, then your child will begin to use those traits in their own writing. Plus you have fun reading together for a different purpose! Supporting your child in becoming a more successful writer can be beneficial to both you and your child. You will spend time together while developing important lifelong skills!
