20 Classroom Policies # 1 Rule: Respect yourself & others Bell Schedule I generally do not assign homework unless you do not complete your in-class assignment it then becomes homework Classroom management plan 10/2/2014

21 Classroom Procedures Are you a little bit unsure of how to get the teacher's attention? Embarrassed because others may laugh at you if you do the wrong thing? Welcome to the club! We all feel that way at some time. That is why it is good to know what is expected of you. By knowing the procedures, you will be happier in the classroom. 10/2/2014

22 Entering the Classroom Enter quietly. If your teacher is at the door, give a greeting, e.g. "Good morning, Mrs. Minix." This is common courtesy and a practice that you will want to carry over to other areas of your life. Go to your seat and put down your book, binder, and materials. Take out your materials and make sure that you have a sharpened pencil. Begin the Bell Work. It will either be on your desk, on the overhead, television, or on the assignment board. Work on this until you finish or the teacher asks you to stop. If you finish early, remain in your seat and read a book or write in your journal. 10/2/2014

23 When you are tardy Enter the classroom quietly. If it is an excused tardy go to your seat as quietly as possible. Put your tardy slip in the pink tub on tardy table. Follow the procedure for Entering the Classroom. 10/2/2014

24 If it is an unexcused tardy Follow the unexcused tardy procedure 1. Write your name in the tardy folder that is on the tardy table 2. Follow the procedure for Entering the Classroom 10/2/2014

25 Leaving the Classroom Before the End of Class If the teacher gives her permission for you to leave the room, then: Put any loose papers or materials inside your desk so that they will not “disappear” while you are gone. Write your name on the "Out" section of the board. Quietly leave. If the door is open, keep it open. If the door was closed, quietly close it. When you return erase your name on the "Out" section of the board. Return to your seat and quietly resume what you were doing. 10/2/2014

26 End of Period Class Dismissal Gather up your supplies and personal belonging (take what you brought in back out with you). Wipe off the top of your desk. Pick up papers and debris on the floor around your desk. Sit quietly at your seat and wait for the teacher/class helper to dismiss you. Quietly leave the room, when the teacher dismisses you. 10/2/2014

27 Asking a Question When the teacher or someone else is talking: Quietly raise your hand and wait to be called. When the class is quietly working: Quietly raise your hand and wait for the teacher to get to you. Continue working while you wait for the teacher. 10/2/2014

28 Sharpening Your Pencil This should be done at the beginning of class, as outlined in the procedure for Entering the Classroom. If the need rises, however, during instruction time, quietly sharpen your pencil. 10/2/2014

29 Responding to my Request for Attention When you see my raised hand or hear me say may I have your attention, Give Me Five! Eyes on speaker Quiet Be still Hands free (put things down) Listen 10/2/2014

30 Saying “please & thank you” You will notice that when your teacher requests something of you, she will say "Please" and when you complete a request from your teacher, she will say "Thank You". You should also use these words with requests. They make the classroom climate more pleasant and they are common courtesies that you will want to carry over to other areas of your life. 10/2/2014

31 These are the procedures which you need to follow to maximize your time and learning in Room 118 (or with Mrs. Minix, wherever she is). We will practice these during the first few classes until they become a part of your routine. If you have any questions about these, please see me.

32 Grading You will start out with an A for the class You will receive a progress report every 9 weeks You will receive a grade for class attendance, class participation, class assignments, handouts, quizzes, and tests. You will keep a notebook with your completed work in it and turn it in for a grade every nine weeks 10/2/2014

33 Bonus Points Bonus Points: Extra work, at times merits extra points. I will offer various extra credit opportunities throughout the year. 10/2/2014

34 How to contact Mrs. Minix I can be reached during my planning period Phone: Extension: /2/2014

35 Student Contract Let’s review your responsibilities Please sign where it says student Take home your student responsibility packet, review it with your parent/guardian, and ask them to sign the part of your student contract where it says parent/guardian signature. 10/2/2014
