Before you know it, we will be seeing signs next month of spring. Last month I shared information about meta cognition and the importance of re establishing routines after the two week break. This month I would like to share how metacognition and mathematics help chil dren gain confidence and problem solve at the highest levels. When teaching mathematics our curriculum includes the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The eight practices include the what, how and why mathematicians think deeply to achieve: J.s.suc They are able to identify quantities in a con textual situation and use mathematical mod els to show relationships of those quantities. Students use their models to think about what they are analyzing, how they are deter mining the relationships and drawing conclu sions. Students interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation, then reflect and communicate on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose. Math modeling is part of how mathemati cians problem solve and how they analyze situations and variables, interpret and draw conclusions. The math modeling cycle re quires 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 representa tions that describe relationships.

Community Forum 12 BW February Calendar /3 This diagram represents Model with mathe matics and the modeling cycle: Foriite 8: Look for and express regularity and re peated 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 eve ryday life, society and the workplace. The Mathematical Practice, number 4, Mod el with mathematics, engages children in thinking about math from the concrete to the abstract. Mathematically proficient students are metacognitive. Cope Intep’eI Developing the depth of students’ thinking builds in mathematics beyond proficient; teaching them to be metacognitive of their learning is the basis for transfer.

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. • What are you solving for in the problem? • Can you think of a problem that you have solved before that is like this one? • How will you go about solving it? What’s your plan? • Are you making progress toward solving it Should you try a different plan? • How can you check your answer? Can you check using a different method? 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. • Can you write or recall an expression or equation to match the problem situation? • What do the numbers or variables in the equation refer to? • Whats the connection among the numbers and the variables in the equation? 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. • Tell me what your answer means. • How do you know that your answer is correct? • If I told you I think the answer should be (offer a wrong answer), how would you explain to me why I’m wrong? 4. Model with mathematics. • Do you know a formula or relationship that fits this problem situation • What’s the connection among the numbers in the problem? • Is your answer reasonable? How do you know? • What does the number(s) in your solution refer to? 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. • What tools could you use to solve this problem? How can each one help you? • Which tool is more useful for this problem? Explain your choice. • Why is this tool (the one selected) better to use than (another tool mentioned)? • Before you solve the problem, can you estimate the answer? 6. Attend to precision. • What do the symbols that you used mean 2 • What units of measure are you using? (for measurement problems) • Explain to me (a term from the lesson). 7. Look for and make use of structure. • What do you notice about the answers to the exercises youve just completed? • What do different parts of the expression or equation you are using tell you about possible correct answers? 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. • What shortcut can you think of that will always work for these kinds of problems? • What pattern(s) do you see? Can you make a rule or generalization? Adapted from pearson :nVisIonVlath aren: Guide 2012 How can you help your child in math? -Help children practice their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. -Encourage children not to give up while solving problems, to build stamina and develop their critical thinking skills. Don’t give them the answers ask them to think of different ways they can solve problems. - -Have children illustrate the math they were thinking in their head and discuss it out loud, -Have children apply their math knowledge to a real-world scenario at home, such as doubling a recipe or calculating the area of a room.

School-Based Planning Team By Mrs. Julie Bisciotti, Grade 1 Teacher The Briarwood School Base Planning Team met on January 14, 2015. Our School-Based Planning Team includes: Kathleen Bush, principal, teachers: Veronica Guzzetta, kindergarten; Julie Bisciotti, first grade; Katie Marshall, second grade; Nancy Reece, third grade; Kim Barlette third grade and team leader; Megan Lentner, school coun selor and Tabatha Cleckner, parent representative. Learning and Achievement: The team looked at student work, K-3, in the area of mathematics, especially with regards to mathematical mod eling for solving problems, as well as justifying the reasonableness of an answer. Each teacher/grade level was able to share out an example from a student’s math journal, and it was evident how each grade level builds upon the other. Kindergarten Mrs. Guzzetta shared how the students are using concrete materials to make teen numbers through the use of secret cards and building them with tens and ones. - Grade 1- Mrs. Bisciotti shared how this is taken further when teaching strategies to solve math equations. For example, in solving 7 + 6, the students are working on seeing that 7 and 3 more can make a ten, and then count on 3 more to get to the total of 13. In addition, the students were working within the mathematical framework, and explaining the steps verbally and in writing for deeper meaning. Grade 2- Mrs. Marshall shared how, in subtraction work, the students are working on decomposing subtraction problems in order to see that they have to borrow from a ten through a multistep process. Additionally, the stu dents were able to check the reasonableness of their answers through the inverse operation of addition. Grade 3 Mrs. Barlette and Mrs. Recce shared their work with rounding numbers to the nearest hundred through the use of Puzzled Penguin. Students have to Justify the reasonableness of an answer and explain if the answer is correct or incorrect, and explain why or what should have been done. This allows for deeper understanding of the skill. - Culture and Climate: For Culture and Climate, the team discussed the progress with utilizing the resource, The 7Habits of Happy Kids, and our on-going work with students. It was reported that the kids are loving the recognition aspect of the hang ing individual acorns on the poster, class leaves on the tree in the A/P room, and classroom announcements. Students are able to verbalize the habits and are cognizant of, and able to verbalize how they are utilizing these habits in their daily lives. The assemblies and character education lessons for 2014-2015 are as follows: February 9: Empathy Habit 5 Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood March 12: Cooperation Habit 6 Synergize April 30: Self-awareness Habit 7 Sharpen the Saw (Balance feels better) May 27: Celebrating Assembly for character education The School Based Planning Team and staff at Briarwood look forward to continuing our great work as a team. The next meeting will be held on February 11th. rI, I Counselor’s Corner Hello Parents! There are many parts to being a good citizen in our community. One of those parts is to be a good friend to one another. This month, I will be visiting your child’s classroom to teach les Sons on the importance of friendship, being and good friend and understanding how these characteristics build a strong and caring community. One of the parts of being a caring individual is to stand up for others. As a community it is im portant that we have each other’s back. I like the message that instead of being a “bystander” we should be “upstanders” and help those around us if others are being unkind or if someone is feeling down. This fosters good friendships, a strong community and stomps out unkind words and actions. Many of the elements we talk about throughout the year are wrapped into the lessons on friendship and being an upstander. Being an upstander... Takes courage It’s not easy to stick up for one another. Sometimes it takes courage to stand up and tell someone to stop hurtful behavior. Takes action A good friend and upstander does not sit back, they take action by showing care and concern for their friends. Takes assertiveness Telling a friend how their behavior makes you feel and how it affects others requires being able to use your voice! Takes compassion Upstanders have the gift of compassion. They recognize when some one is hurt and take steps to help. Takes leadership Upstanders are leaders in their social group, helping others to recognize ways to get along and be supportive to others. — = - - - - There is a lot of great information out there about how to foster kindness and acceptance. A quick google search of “upstander” will yield countless tools to help kids understand the im portance of caring for one another. Have a conversation with your child about how important it is to stand up for themselves and for one another! If you have any questions, please feel free to call me. Thank you for your continued support in helping our children learn and grow! .‘.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION NEWS Dear Families, In physical education class, we have just introduced our theme of fitness and lifelong weilness. Your children are in the process of learning and experiencing the Cardiovascular Endurance fitness compo nent. We have discussed in class that the word cardio means heart, the word vascular means lungs and the word endurance means an extended period of time. In other words, we have taken a complex vocabulary word and have broken it down for better understanding and application to class activities. As the weeks continue, we will continue to explore movement that focuses on strengthening our Cardi ovascular Endurance fitness level as well as exploring the other areas of fitness (Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance and Flexibility). As always, please remind your children to bring proper footwear to PE class and feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have. Sincerely, Brian Maginn Physical Education Teacher Brian Maginnwestiron.monroeedu MUSICAL NOTES From lovesick moose to gooey-sweet chocolate valentines, the month of February promises some fun songs in music class. One of the things all the grades will be working on this month is musical form. Third grades will continue studying forms like canon and rondo. We’ll experience these forms by listening, performing, and moving to music. Second grade will also be looking at musical forms using different movements to represent the different sounding sections of AB and ABA songs. In first grade we are beginning to understand musical form in distinguishing between same and different sounds, instruments, and movements. In addition, there will be several fun games reviewing rhythms and dynamics. Although it’s a short month we’re still going to pack it full of music! Marc Falco Music Teacher Health News: Asthma Mary Jane Sementelli, RN The changes in seasons and colder temperatures are bringing students to the Health Office with complaints of wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing and chest tightness. These are the common symptoms of asthma, a disease of the airways that makes breathing difficult. The bands of muscle surrounding the airways tighten and limit air flow in and out of the lungs. Inflammation can cause swelling which narrows the bronchial tubes, and mucous can obstruct the airways. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the rate of childhood asthma has more than doubled since 1980. Early warning signs that can occur before an asthma episode include feeling tired, weak or breathless when exercising, wheezing or coughing after exercising, a frequent cough at night that interrupts sleep, or a cough that lasts more than a week. Factors that can lead to breathing difficulties or an asthma episode are called “triggers.” In door triggers include smoke, dust mites, molds, vapors from cleaning products and perfumes. Outdoor triggers include pollen, air pollution and cold air. Respiratory tract infections, exer cise and emotional stress can also lead to an asthma episode. It’s important to recognize what your triggers are and avoid exposure to them. Medications may be prescribed by your health care provider to treat these symptoms. “Reliever/rescue medicines” (inhalers) are considered quick acting medications that can be used as needed to relieve symptoms. They may also be prescribed by your doctor to be given prior to exercise or sports as a preventative measure for those who experience exercise in duced asthma. For those with frequently occurring asthma symptoms “controller medicines” may be prescribed to be given on a regular basis. Talk with your doctor to determine the best way to treat your child’s signs and symptoms of asthma. If your child uses a rescue inhaler at home, you may want to consider having one in school. As with any medication given in school, the school nurse will need a written order form your doctor for the medication, a parent or guardian’s written permission to administer the medi cation in school, and the medication delivered to the Health Office by the parent or guardian in a properly labeled original container. Your child’s asthma can be controlled. Contact your primary health care provider or your school nurse, Mary Jane Sementelli at 336-1618 with questions or concerns.
