Follow all PROCEDURES in our classroom!
Procedures We have procedures in the classroom so that we know what to do, and when to do it. What is a procedure? A procedure is a certain way of doing things, like opening your locker, or baking a cake. To be successful in learning, you must follow some simple procedures
Starting Class Class begins before the bell… as soon as you walk into class 1.Take out your homework and place it on your desk in front of you. 2.Copy down your homework for the day 3.Sharpen your pencil please 4.Quietly, begin the “Do Now”. Always include the date and subject.
Please try to go between classes, or at lunch We can not use the bathroom during the first 15 minutes of class, or the last 10. (why not?) If you need to go to the bathroom, raise 3 fingers, and I will give you the “NOD”. Then you must sign out, and sign back in… Thank you!! …let’s practice Need to use the Bathroom??
Need to sharpen pencil??? ….. Raise your hand with your pencil in it, and I will give you the “OK” or Not. Need to get a tissue, or throw something out?? …. Raise one finger and I will give you the “OK”. Only one person out of their seat at a time Please!!
The End of Class The bell does not end class. I end class when I say, “Have a nice day” Why do you think these procedures are important?? Last few minutes of class Reflection – OR - Exit Questions!! Could be exit slip, Could be PEPPER,!!!!! Be ready!!!!!
We write in blue or black ink only, a pencil is also acceptable. (If you write in any other color… you will lose points!!) What do I do if I do not have a pen or a pencil?? PEN or PENCIL?? You may BORROW a small pencil from Mrs. Cholak…. Please remember to return it at the end of class!
