Definition When you arrive on time you are responsible and have everything taken care of before you come into the classroom, and you come into the classroom before the tardy bell rings. You walk directly to your seat or designated spot with your materials ready for class. Arriving on time is important to your teacher, your classmate, and yourself in order to use the full amount of learning time on learning and not on taking care of tardies.
Example Vinny and Snooki arrived early to class and received a cat track from their teacher.
Non-example Ronnie walks into class and places his materials on his desk. He goes out into the hall and talks with his friends. The tardy bell rings. Ronnie tells his friends goodbye and heads for class, where he is tardy. Mrs. Copelin was not happy. (Neither was Chuck Norris.)
Example Sam knows he will probably have to use the restroom between 2 nd and 3 rd period. He takes 2 nd and 3 rd period materials with him to 2 nd period, so he has time to use the restroom and not worry about going to his locker. After using the restroom, he walks into 3 rd period class and heads for his desk with his materials. The tardy bells rings, and Sam is on time.
Practice Time Students practice getting needed materials, getting a drink, using the restroom, etc. within a three-minute time frame while teacher uses timer. Teacher can call out “30 seconds remaining” to give students a good feel for how much time they have left. Teachers: you may want to give Cat Tracks to students who make it back on time.
Discussion Discuss strategies for getting to class on time, helpful hints, and what you should do after arriving on time. Volunteer a story about a time someone was late picking you up or late to an event and how it made you feel or a story when if you hadn’t been on time, then…, etc.
Now that you are informed on how to get to class on time, get out there and make Chuck proud.
