What are procedures? Procedures tell you what to do Procedures explain how things are to be done in the classroom If you forget to follow a procedure correctly, you will continue to practice until it is a habit
Why do we need procedures? We need procedures so we will know what to do without being told Procedures will help our classroom run more smoothly and minimize interruptions, which means we can learn more
What is CHAMP? For each activity, I will tell you what the CHAMP guidelines are. C = Conversation H = Help A = Assignment M = Movement (Can I get out of my seat? P = Participation
What are voice levels? 0 = NO TALKING 1 = WHISPER 2 = CONVERSATION 3 = OUTSIDE If the voice level inside ever reaches 3, the entire class will face penalties
Classroom Signals We will do a lot of group work this year; therefore, I will use hand signals to get your attention. STOP, LOOK, LISTEN (sign language) ○ Stop everything you are doing immediately. Put your hands on your desk quietly. ○ Look me in the eye. ○ Put your listening ears on and be prepared to hear any information I give you. GIVE ME FIVE ○ Eyes are watching ○ Ears are listening ○ Lips are closed ○ Hands are still ○ Feet are quiet
What should I do if someone is talking? Look the person in the eye Lean slightly forward to let them know you are listening Listen to what the person is saying Do not interrupt!
Lining Up Procedures Before we can go anywhere, we must ALWAYS line up correctly. I do not permit talking for any reason while lining up. Voice Level = 0 I will call one row at a time. When I call your row, you may stand up silently, push your chair under quietly, and walk to the line. You must get in line with your row. Never run to try to be near a friend because you are not permitted to talk to them in the hallway. Once in line, stand silently with feet and hands at your side, facing forward. Wait on other rows to be called.

What do I do if I am a pickup? Five minutes before buses are called, I will tell you to get your things together. When the bell rings, I will dismiss you. THE BELL DOES NOT DISMISS YOU. I DISMISS YOU. You will walk to the door and exit quietly. If you fail to follow this procedure, then you will be asked to repeat it until you do it successfully. You will line up in a straight, quiet line in the hallway.
What do I do if I ride a bus? 5 min. before the pick-up bell rings, I will tell you to get your things together.
