Entering the Classroom Come in quietly, hang backpack on back of desk, get out needed materials, turn in homework, and begin bell work.
Bell Work Homeroom Time will be from 7:45 to 8. During this time you MUST be reading Accelerated Reader (AR) books independently! Daily bell work will be written on the board or may be a sheet placed on your desktop. Begin your work immediately after you come into the classroom. You will work on the assignment until told otherwise. We will check and discuss the assignment and move into our lesson for the day.
Coming to Attention The teacher will say Give Me Five at which time you will immediately look at the Give Me Five rules posted on the wall and follow the 5 directions: 1.) Eyes on the speaker 2.) Mouth quiet 3.) Ears listening 4.) Hands Free 5.) Body Still. You may hear the teacher say 1, 2, 3 Eyes On Me! while waving a hand in the air. Following the statement, students should reply: 1, 2, 3 Eyes On You! The teacher may say, If you hear my voice clap once. The students will then clap once. The teacher may proceed with asking to clap twice or clap three times until the entire class is giving her attention. The teacher may also ring a bell or pat out a rhythm that the students will follow.
Wastepaper Place paper to be thrown away on your desktop. Do NOT raise your hand and disturb class to ask to throw away paper. Please hold it until the end of class and you may throw it away on your way out of the door. You should not be cleaning out your backpack or folders during my class! Do it at home!
Pencils There will be a jar of sharp pencils and a jar of dull pencils placed by the pencil sharpener. If you need to borrow one of these pencils you must leave a shoe in the basket provided. When you return my pencil, you may get your shoe back. (This is to encourage you to bring your materials to class.) You may also sharpen your pencils first thing in the morning and periodically throughout the day during independent work times.
Turning In Assignments Assignments will be labeled (example on the wall) correctly and turned into the appropriate subject basket unless told otherwise. Homework will be turned in immediately as you enter the room and get ready for your day. It should be apart of your morning routine.
Heading Your Paper You have been assigned numbers Your number will go in the very top right hand corner of your paper Your first and last name will go on the top line of the right side of your paper. (Under your number) The date will go on the line under your name The subject will go on the line under the date If your paper is not graded correctly I will not grade it until it is done right.
