Good Afternoon, Parents,

We had a wonderful visit from Steven K Smith this morning!  If you are looking for some wonderful books I highly rec commend his Virginia Readers series!  I have read them all! They take place in Virginia and students love them! 

IN THE CLASSROOM

Reading: Big Idea: A good reader summarizes information during and after reading that covers the main points.  Strategy Focus:  Summarizing Nonfiction. We will be reading nonfiction stories on famous Americans including: Wilma Rudolph, Harriett Tubman, The Wright Brothers & Abraham Lincoln. We will follow the Who-What-Why format for summarizing these famous individuals.

Math: The student will a) name and write fractions and mixed numbers represented by a model; b) represent fractions and mixed numbers with models and symbols; and c) compare fractions having like and unlike denominators, using words and symbols (>, <, =, or ≠), with models.

Social Studies/Science:  Students will switch teachers to learn about the contributions of ancient civilizations (Mali, Rome, Greece, China, Egypt).

www.khanacademy.org/mappers (designed to target specific weaknesses for your child).  Can be accessed on Schoology through Clever.  On my Schoology math page, there are also a lot of other websites as well.

If you have not already done so please consider joining our PTA.

Wednesday is the first day of spring.  It is time to put the winter clothes and parkas in the back of the closet and bring out the short sleeve shirts and jackets.  As you rotate your wardrobe for the new season, you may also discover there are denim items you no longer wear.  Instead of letting these items continue to take up valuable closet and drawer space, please send them to “The Park” for our annual Denim Drive.  Our March competition among the grade levels is tight.  Your addition may be the pair of jeans or the jean jacket to help your favorite class win!  Thank you for your help and Happy Spring!

Did you know that March 20th is National Proposal Day?  The Springers at “The Park” would like to propose to you the idea of ordering a pizza from Papa John’s to help us get closer to the GRAND PRIZE of $10,000. It is so easy to do.  Go to www.papajohns.com or call (804) 747-7300 and remember to use the code SPES.   So we would like to pop the question, “Would you PLEASE order a pizza from Papa John’s?”

This weekend there will be an arts festival on both Saturday & Sunday from 10am-4pm each day.  This is HCPS’s annual “Youth Art Month” exhibit featuring art from all of the elementary, middle, & high schools.  The location this year is Varina High School.  Stop by to see some amazing art created by SPES and Henrico county students!

Respectfully,

Mrs. Hilton

Reading: This week we will be working on identifying the author’s purpose in nonfiction text. We will compare three nonfiction text. The Boy who Harnessed the Wind, Ryan’s Well, and an article from the UVA newspaper about Chris Long’s work raising money to build wells in Africa. Chris Long is a current member of the Philadelphia Eagles, former UVA football player & philanthropist. I think this will be a wonderful week reading nonfiction and learning how author’s write to provide their reader with information!

Math: We will begin a large unit on fractions. This week students will name and write fractions of a set. Next week we will compare fractions with like and unlike denominators and then we will learn how to add and subtract fractions. Finally, we will learn about mixed numbers and improper fractions.

**If your child struggled on the money task cards and you would like to borrow a set of the cards to review. Please email me and I will send them home 🙂

Reflex Math: Please make sure your child is completing Reflex Math twice a week until they meet their green light. Congratulations to Jonah, Hassan & Hagop for being promotes to multiplication and division!

www.khanacademy.org/mappers (designed to target specific weaknesses for your child).  Both can be accessed on Schoology through Clever.

Social Studies/Science:  We will investigate and understand basic patterns and cycles occurring in nature. Key concepts include a) patterns of natural events such as day and night, seasonal changes, simple phases of the moon, and tides; b) animal life cycles; and c) plant life cycles. Our Test will be Thursday.

Writing: We will use our research about a famous African American and write a paragraph using transition words (first, next, then, finally) and joining words phrases.

WOW!!! We had an overwhelming first month collection for our Denim Drive.  Thanks to many of you, we collected 754 denim items.  Our February class winners in the K-2 Division is Miss Buff’s kindergarten and in the 3 – 5 Division is Mrs. Nowicki’s fifth grade.  Our March competition started on Friday.  Which classes will be he Denim Champions for March.  Ask family and friends to start cleaning out their closets and give any denim items to “The Park.”’  Will we be able to break 1,000 items in March?  With your help, we can!

March 6 is National Frozen Food Day.  We can thank Clarence Birdseye  for patenting frozen foods in 1927.  Frozen foods first hit store shelves in 1930.  When you think of frozen foods, many of you think of a frozen pizza.  Why have a frozen pizza when you can a delicious pizza made especially for you, hot and fresh from Papa John’s?  It is so easy to do.  Go to www.papajohns.com or call (804) 747-7300 and remember to use the code SPES.  Thank you for participating in Dollars for Dough and helping “The Park” get closer to $10,000.

Thank you so much for all the sweet goodies, beautiful flowers and cards last week!  I am super appreciative for your care & support.

Just a reminder to bring in baked goods on Tuesday for the PTA meeting!  Thanks for your support!  Students will be meeting in the classroom at 6:45 before the performance.  It will be an event not to be missed!  This is one of my favorite programs I have seen!! A yellow paper was sent home with your child last week, with details about time to arrive & what to wear.

Thursday, February 21 is the 100th Day of School.  Celebrate the day with a pizza or two from Papa John’s and help “The Park” get one step closer to winning $10,000 to enhance instruction. Anyone can celebrate the 100th Day of School.  Invite family and friends in the area to help celebrate as well with a pizza.  Go to www.papajohns.com or call (804) 747-7300 and remember to use the code SPES.  While you are enjoying your pizza, count how many days until June 14, 2019.

Presidents Week Fact:  Did you know that statistically, every American owns, on average, seven pairs of blue jeans but Abraham Lincoln NEVER owned a pair of blue jeans?  The reason why “Honest Abe” never owned a pair of blue jeans is because the birthday of blue jeans is believed to be May 20, 1873.  Did you also know that “The Park” won last year’s Henrico County Denim Drive?  We would like to retain our title and win this prestigious honor again this year. Now that you know the facts, please send in all of your discarded denim items (jeans, jumpers, skirts, hats, jackets, etc.) today.

IN THE CLASSROOM

Reading: Readers use information in the text along with what they already know to draw a conclusion.  Strategy Focus:  Drawing Conclusions in Nonfiction.  Students will take part in cross curricular instruction & apply these skills & strategies to nonfiction passages that support our current science unit!

  • The student will  determine the value of a collection of bills and coins whose total value is $5.00 or less
  • compare the value of two sets of coins or two sets of coins and bills
  • make change from $5.00 or less.

Social Studies/Science: Student will take a break from their world travels!  The next two weeks will be focused on science. A review guide will come home tomorrow.  Students will investigate and understand basic patterns and cycles occurring in nature. Key concepts include (the water cycle, the life cycle of a butterfly & frog, the earth patterns that cause day and night, seasons & simple phases of the moon, and tides)

Stations: This week we students will begin an in class research project on a famous African American. We are reading Jackie & Me to pay tribute to an amazing African American athlete that stood up for what was right, even though he was not treated well!

Good Morning Parents!

Mark your calendars- The third grade students will be preforming at the PTA meeting on February 19th and 7:00.  Hope to see you there! Yellow papers will go home today (2/12) with further directions!

If you have not returned the signed report card folder please do so by Friday.

During the week of February 11th– 15th, the SCA will be raising money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Students will have the opportunity to bring in change throughout the week. This fundraiser has always been a huge success and we can’t wait to see all that we can collect this year. Thank you in advance for your support!

Valentine’s Day is this Thursday!  This year get your sweetheart a heart shaped pizza from Papa John’s and help The Park get closer to that $10,000 grand prize.  It is easier than ordering flowers or getting in the Valentine chaos at the mall. From the comfort of your easy chair go to www.papajohns.com, order your pizza and enter the code SPES.   Please tell your family and friends who live in the metro Richmond and Tri-Cities areas to help us as well so they can have an awesome Valentine gift for that special someone.  Happy Valentines Day from all of us at The Park.  Thank you for sharing the love!

What is this Denim Drive that is happening at SPES?  The Denim Drive raises awareness of the “greening” of denim items, particularly blue jeans, that are recycled and repurposed. It keeps old denim out of the landfill and instead the items go to textile companies to repurpose the items. The Park benefits with a monetary reward that we can use to enhance learning if we bring in the most items in the county.  Last year we were the winners of the elementary division.  Can we be the “Back to Back Denim Drive Champions”?  With everyones help, we can.  Ask family and friends to help and send in your items today.

IN THE CLASSROOM

Reading:Big Idea: Readers use information in the text along with what they already know to draw a conclusion.  Strategy Focus:  Drawing Conclusions in Fiction and Poetry. We will complete sheet on Pixar Shorts.  The students have loved this!!  If you have a moment at home to watch: One Man Band, Birds on a Wire, Partly Cloudy or Geri’s Game please do so and allow your child to demonstrate their inference skills! We completed our 4th novel!  Students loved Because of Winn Dixie! If you are looking for a fun family movie night, I know your child would love to see this movie! Today we started a new novel! In honor of black history month, I have chosen to read Jackie and Me! It is a fictional story about a boy who travels back in time, meets Jackie Robinson and learns a very valuable lesson!

Math: Students will determine the value of a collection of bills and coins whose total value is $5.00 or less; compare the value of two sets of coins or two sets of coins and bills; make change from $5.00 or less.

Other Math Practice: I have made Khan Academy accounts for your child but am having some technical difficulty!  Stay tuned!

Reflex Math: Please make sure your child is practicing Reflex Math at home, twice a week, until they meet their green light.  This is homework.

Congratulations to Jacob for reaching 100% in multiplication & division!  Congratulations to Kayla for being promoted to multiplication & division.

Social Studies: This week your child will travel to Miss Petree’s room to learn all about Ancient Greece! Please review notes daily when they come home.

This fundraiser has always been a huge success and we can’t wait to see all that we can collect this year. Thank you in advance for your support!

Third grade students will be taking a mid-year reading and math benchmark assessment over the upcoming weeks.  These tests will cover all material learned so far this school year.  Please ensure your child gets a good night’s rest before the exams and has a good breakfast on those mornings.  In preparation for the tests, review math and reading homework will be sent home.  Please support your child in preparing for these assessments.  We have TWO this week!

2/4 Reading Part 2

2/8 Math Part 1

Our class will be taking a free field trip to the Math and Science Center on 2/7 to receive a lesson on simple machines.

Caution!  Cold weather continues throughout the month of January and into February.  It is too cold to go out so why not order a hot pizza from Papa John’s and help Springfield Park get closer to winning $10,000 in PJ’s “Dollars for Dough” competition?  It is easy to help.  Next time you order a pizza, go to www.papajohns.com, order you pizza and enter the code SPES.   Please tell your family and friends who live in the metro Richmond and Tri-Cities areas to help us as well.  This contest continues through May so please do this every time you order.  Thank you for your support!

It is that time of year again! Our annual “Denim Drive”.  Neil Diamond had a song, “Forever in Blue Jeans.” We know we cannot be forever in blue jeans and eventually we must part with our favorite denim. To make the parting easier, please donate your discarded denim (jeans, jackets, skirt, etc.) to The Park for the “Denim Drive.” All conditions and sizes of denim accepted. We will have a monthly competition for the class that brings in the most items, K-2 and 3-5.  The first competition ends on Thursday, February 28.  Will our class win for February?

IN THE CLASSROOM

Reading:-This week in reading we will begin our unit on Making Inferences & Drawing Conclusions! We will watch several Disney Pixar short films and apply a new strategy!  Our class named our strategy RKC for Read Know Conclude!  I guess Drawing Conclusions was not catchy enough!  If you get a chance ask your child which Pixar film was their favorite?!?!  For the Birds, Partly Cloudy, One Man Band or Geri’s Game?  We will continue this next week before we begin doing the same strategy with picture books!

Math: We will complete our unit on time this week.  Students will learn elapsed time in one hour increments.  We will play several fun games in class!

Other Math Practice: Two weeks ago, your child received a yellow card in their folder.  This card had instructions on how to access Clever from home.  I have made accounts for every child on a math site called Zearn.  This is a wonderful site that has videos of teachers teaching concepts!  Please check it out when you get a chance.  We have worked on it in class, & your child has a password taped in their agenda.

Reflex Math: Please make sure your child is practicing Reflex Math at home, twice a week, until they meet their green light.  This is homework.

Congratulations to Riley Anne for achieving 100% for addition and subtraction!

Social Studies: This week your child will travel to Miss Petree’s room to learn all about Ancient Greece! Please review notes daily when they come home.

Reading:

Big Idea: Focus Strategy: When readers take ownership of strategies, they flexibly use a variety of strategies to support comprehension. Comprehension Standards: Use reading strategies to monitor comprehension throughout the reading process. We will continue to to use the following strategies below.  I added the “Changing Headings into Questions” anchor chart!  If you are planning on working with these strategies with your child I would LOVE and APPRECIATE any feedback you have!

Nonfiction: Changing headings into Questions & VIP Nonfiction

Fiction: Questioning (Red, Yellow, Green) & VIP Fiction

Here are some photos to help!

Math: Students will work to measure the perimeter of objects & determine the area.  We will also work on telling time to the nearest minute.

Other Math Practice: Last week you received a yellow card in your child’s folder.  This card had instructions on how to access Clever from home.  I have made accounts for every child on a math site called Zearn.  This is a wonderful site that has videos of teachers teaching concepts!  Please check it out when you get a chance.  We have worked on it in class, & your child has a password taped in their agenda.

Reflex Math: Please make sure your child is practicing Reflex Math at home, twice a week, until they meet their green light.  This is homework.  I had lunch with all students 90% and higher on Friday.  I hope to have lunch once a week with students reaching 90%!  I will not be changing your child from addition & subtraction until they meet 95%.  This is a change from my previous blog. I want to ensure addition & subtraction mastery before 4th grade.  Thank you for your support at home!

Congratulations to: Trainor, Emma, Sasah, Anvitha, Hassan, Addilynn, Kelsey & Mason for being promoted to multiplication & division!

Science:  We will complete our matter unit.
