5 Major rules in my classroom are:
As a class, they work together to earn 10 class compliments from other teachers. Once 10 compliments have been earned, a vote will be taken to see what class reward will be given. EX: extra recess, pj day, technology time, a short video, etc. They make up the reward options then vote.
I reserve the right to make the consequence fit the action accordingly. Please remember that some actions, such as talking excessively, hitting, running in the hall, etc. do not need a verbal warning. These are things that the students should know not to do. When a child receives a “Turnover”, they will have the opportunity to move their basketball “back on the court” if their behavior is corrected. If a child is often reaching the second or third consequence, I will call or send a note regarding their behavior. I feel that it is extremely important that disruptive behavior in the classroom be dealt with quickly, consistently, and with respect for all involved. As a classroom teacher, my effectiveness is greatly diminished if time that could be spent teaching is used to correct misbehaviors. I want the children to feel their classroom is a safe and happy learning environment.
Student gets a day for each day missed to make up their missed work.
Students need to practice Math facts and read 20 minutes M-F.
Grading Policy: I try very hard to enter grades once a week. Usually on Mondays. To check your child’s grades please go to Skyward. If you do not know your user name and password contact the office at 794-4260.
