Classroom Procedures:

  1. Morning Work

Students will be expected to complete a warm up assignment each morning.

Assignments will vary daily, but they should be completed by the end of the

school day. Students should work quietly while completing this assignment.

  1. Entering the Classroom

Students should enter the classroom calmly and quietly. All materials should

be placed in the appropriate areas and students should take their seats

quickly and prepare to work.

  1. Sharpening Pencils

Pencils should be sharpened when students arrive at school. Students should

not sharpen pencils during instruction. If their pencil breaks, students can

retrieve a new pencil from the front of the classroom. Any borrowed pencil should be returned before students leave the classroom.

  1. Restroom

Students should use the restroom when they arrive at school each morning.

There will be other opportunities for students to take a restroom break

throughout the day. If a student has an emergency, they will be allowed to

leave class when a bathroom break is not scheduled.

  1. Classroom Visitors

When someone enters the classroom, students should remain seated and

quiet. They should not interrupt conversations and should remain on task for

the duration of the visit.

  1. Technology

Technology is a privilege. Students will be permitted to use technology in

the classroom in order to further their learning experiences. The technology

must be used appropriately in order for students to continue receiving the opportunity to use them. Students should not be on any website or application that have not been assigned by the teacher. The use of technology will be prohibited if students do not follow directions when using these items.

  1. Passing in Papers

Students will turn their papers in at designated times. Completed

assignments will go in an appropriately labeled container. Incomplete

assignments will be placed in another labeled container. All assignments

should be turned in by the end of the school day.

  1. Group Procedures

Students should come to small group tables quietly and quickly. They should

bring a pencil and any other requested materials with them upon transition. Students should remain on task while working in instructional groups, both with and without the teacher.

  1. Supply Procedures

Students should not use any supplies from any area of the classroom

without permission. The teacher will inform students when supplies are

needed, and the order they are retrieved will be determined by the situation.

  1. Homework

Students will be expected to write their homework down in a planner each day. All homework will be due the following morning. Students will have spelling homework Monday through Thursday night, and they will have math most nights of the week.

 

Expectations:

  1. Students are expected to listen when someone is talking.

  2. Directions should be followed the first time they are given.

  3. Students should treat everyone with kindness and respect.

Grading:

Classwork assignments will be averaged together to provide students with a weekly classwork grade. Tests and quizzes will be averaged in separately. Students will be expected to complete homework on a daily basis and turn it in each day. Percentages are as follows:

  • Classwork - 60%

  • Tests/Quizzes - 30%

  • Homework - 10%

 

 

Communication:

Communication between parents and teachers is an important part of student

success. It is vital for the lines of communication to remain open throughout

the school year. You may contact me at any given time by phone, email, or

in written form. I will do my best to keep you up to date on what is going on

in our classroom each week.
