7 ENTERING THE CLASSROOM Do NOT enter until teacher opens the door, even if door is unlocked or a student exits.Go DIRECTLY to your assigned seat, without talking. No wandering, no socializing, no getting paper/pencils from a friend, no throwing something in the trash.Take out class materials—pen/pencil, notebook, homework.Close bag/backpack, store on chair or under table. Do not go into bag/backpack until dismissal.Begin Bellwork immediately! NO TALKING!
8 BELLWORKGet started immediately when seated in class. COPY every question, then record the answer.Don’t know the answer? Copy the question and wait for the review.When music plays, finish the question you are on, put pencil down, sit quietly and wait for review.Bellwork will be collected on Fridays.All 5 days of Bellwork should be on the same paper.
9 FlashcardsTo prepare for the CST and tests we will study flashcards and review Cornell Notes daily.You must review your flashcards during the designated time. No socializing.Use notecards or cut/tear paper.You must have your flashcards with you everyday.Save all flashcards until CST in the Spring.You will need a place to store your cards— envelope, baggie, ring, notecard holder, etc.
10 Science StartersScience Starters are a group activity that we do 2-4 times a week.They will follow flashcards.Work with your table group.All students must participate.This is NOT socializing time.Classes with the most Science Starter points earn a music note.

12 MaterialsCome to class prepared! Have your pen/pencil, paper, etc. ready to go BEFORE the bell rings.Have extra pencils in case one breaks!During class you may NOT borrow lead or a pencil or a sharpener from other students—it’s disruptive.If your extra pencils break or you do not have paper you may raise your hand and borrow a crayon and scratch paper from Mrs. Espinosa.I do NOT have a pencil sharpener.
13 Returning PapersWhen papers are graded and recorded they will be placed in the blue cubbies, in the slot for your class period.I will select a designated student(s) to pass these papers back during classtime.Returned papers do not need to be saved.If you do not wish to keep your paper wait until AFTER class to throw it away.
14 Collecting PapersWhen classwork or homework is ready to be turned in as a class, stack the papers and place at the edge of the table, next to the center aisle.If you have a paper to turn in separately, place in the basket on back counter.
