Good Choices = Fabulous Rewards
Table Points Earning team points 1, 2, 3, eyes on me = ALL eyes are on me! Example: Whole team is on task and following instructions = +1 point Losing table points Example: One or more team members not on task and/or following instructions = -1 point Every Friday there is a reward for the team with the most points.
Movie Permission We have opportunities to show different types of videos and DVDs during the school year. Most often the movies are G rated and are shown over several days, like a week of rain. Some of our movies are from the history channel, some follow up to stories or activities and are unrated, and some are surprisingly PG. I must have a parent OK to show PG movies
Request for Classroom Donations This year we will be reading several books together as a class. The district does not have enough copies and the ones that they do have are very old and losing pages. I would like to create my own set of these books if at all possible. The total donation would be $20 per student.
Get to School on Time! If it is after 8:25 a.m., YOU are late!
When you arrive:. 1. Unpack your backpack and place it on rack outside. (This will be the ONLY time you may go into your backpack) 2. Unstack your chair 3. Sharpen at least 3 pencils 4. Look to white board to see what needs to be out on desk. 5. Name goes on board if you are missing any homework. 6. Start morning seat work.
Classroom Signals Instead of raising your hand and waiting for a teacher to call on you, you will use these hand signals so the teacher doesn’t have to stop teaching. - “ W ” for water (2 tickets) - “ R ” for restroom (5 tickets)
Questions and Answers Raise your hand quietly I will only call on QUIET hands Think time When someone is called on, put your hand down and actively listen to what is said
Restroom Procedures Use in the morning or during your own break times. Otherwise, it costs you 5 tickets. Use hand signals to ask during class Walk quietly to the restroom Wash your hands with soap Leave the restroom clean Quickly and quietly return to your seat and continue working
Water Procedures Drink water during your own break times. Use hand signals to ask during class Walk quietly to the water fountain One person at a time-no line Drink on a count of 5 seconds Quickly and quietly return to your seat and continue working.
Pencils Pencils and sharpeners are your responsibility. Make sure that you have enough pencils. If you have no pencil: check with your team for another pencil Buy a pencil with 5 tickets.
Paper Notebook (lined) paper is also your responsibility. Additional paper is in the bookcase at the front of the room. You may get paper as you need it. If it is during class you need to ask permission
