Hello Shrevewood Family,

 

We wanted to update you on a staff adjustment in our school. Mary Thweatt, our school librarian, has decided to move into an instructional assistant position for the remainder of the school year. We are excited for Mary and we are glad she has continued to be a apart of our Shrevewood Family.

Instruction will continue in the library with a long-term substitute until we find a great new librarian for Shrevewood ES.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Josh & Tylea

FCPS' official Twitter account, @fcpsnews (with the blue check mark), is where you'll first see closing or delay announcements. That's because we've found Twitter to be the fastest, most effective method of disseminating news.

Subscribers to the Delayed Openings and School Closings email on News You Choose will also be notified.

Please keep in mind that there may be a delay from the time messages are transmitted to them being received by users. More than 588,000 emails and texts are being transmitted during every weather closure or delay. However, FCPS has no control over how long it takes cell and internet service providers to distribute emails and texts to customers.

December 13, 2019 Family Engagement Survey Positivity Project- Self Control

You have the ability to control your emotions
and behaviors. You think before you act.
Self-control is the act of managing behavior in a way that positively influences goal attainment and living up to standards. Possessing this strength protects people from destabilizing emotional extremes. Those with self-control
are able to limit impulsive behavior. They have the ability to experience and navigate difficulty while remaining poised. They understand that through discipline and restraint, there are greater, long-term goals that they can accomplish. Self- control is related to prudence, in that people with this strength are able to implement extended planning techniques in pursuit of difficult task completion. Self- control does not mean a lack of thoughts, feelings, or impulses; it just means you have command over them.

Advanced Academics Take Home Reading Bag Program

Students in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades will be participating in the Shrevewood Take-Home Reading Bag Program! Research shows that reading a large number of books helps students to become better readers and that students need access to books at their own level. The goal of Take-Home Reading Bags is to get children into the “groove” of reading by providing books at a comfortable reading level to read at home. Reading at this level promotes the fluency and comprehension.  These books have been introduced in guided reading and your child should be able to read them with minimal support.  Students are responsible for bringing their books back and forth between home and school daily.

Kiss & Ride

SHREVEWOOD KISS & RIDE GUIDELINES

Most elementary schools in Fairfax County have established an area called the Kiss & Ride, which is designed as a safe place for adults in private vehicles to load and unload children. The Kiss & Ride is separate from the school bus area, which helps schools to avoid problems associated with cars passing buses, or cars parking in bus only zones and fire lanes. It also establishes a pedestrian traffic pattern to keep children safe. Our hope is that if all drivers cooperate with guidelines, we will be able to provide an efficient and safe transfer of children. To ensure safety for everyone, observe the following rules when loading and unloading children:

  • All cars must follow the designated route for Kiss & Ride. See map below for further details.
  • You must display your Kiss & Ride number that you are assigned in your windshield EVERY DAY at pick up.
  • Pull forward as far as possible into four drop off zones before loading or unloading.
  • Load and unload in the Kiss & Ride area only.
  • Load and unload from the passenger side of the car only.
  • Keep “good-byes” brief.
  • Remain in the driver’s seat. (Staff members can assist with car doors.)
  • Do not pass other cars that are loading or unloading unless directed to do so.
  • Do not park in the Kiss & Ride lane and leave your car unattended.
  • Do not park in the parking lot to load or unload children.
  • All students must wear seatbelts and/or be in a carseat if appropriate. Exit Kiss & Ride promptly after loading or unloading children.
  • As designated by Virginia Law, Shrevewood parking lot is a hands-free cell phone zone.

Book Fair Square One Art Guided Reading at Shrevewood

Guided reading is an important part of the reading workshop. In guided reading, teachers guide students and provide support as needed. In guided reading, teachers form groups to address the needs of readers in the class, meeting more frequently with students who need more support. Similar to independent reading, each student reads his or her copy of the text from beginning to end. Groups are adjusted based on the progress of each student. 

Guided reading lessons follow this basic structure. 

  • Book introduction: Provide a book introduction to support the construction of meaning prior to the students reading the text. 
  • Students read text: Each student reads his or her own copy of the text. Teachers listen and provide support as needed. 
  • Engage in discussion: The short discussion after a guided reading lesson is an authentic exchange of ideas. 
  • Teaching point: This is a focused piece of instruction based on the needs of the group. 
  • Word study: A short time can be spent on word work related to the text or student needs.

Readers are dynamic, guided reading groups are flexible, and text levels are approximate. A reading level is a tool for teachers; it is not a label that we assign.
