Room 17 Classroom Procedures What we do and How we do it!
Welcome to Language Arts! Activity: Close your eyes and think about all the things you do in a classroom. How did you enter the class today? What have you done so far? Was it right? Was it wrong? Share your thoughts.
Procedures are in place for your SAFETY Your safety and happiness is the most important thing to me! I want you to feel like you can come here to learn, share, and grow as young adults. I am here to help you through this process
Entering the Classroom 1)When you enter the classroom each day, you must come in quietly and find your ASSIGNED seats. 2)If you have homework due that day that you know I will collect, take it out and put it in the silver turn in bin marked for either 7 th or 8 th grade. 3)Once you turn it in, return to your seats and take out your assignment notebook.
Copying Homework Once you reach your seats, you should IMMEDIATELY take out your assignment notebooks to begin copying whatever is on the board for your grade level. I will be around to initial it quickly. I will also give you homework points for your reading logs at this time. This should NOT take a long time to do.
Using the Bathroom and Leaving Class If you have to use the bathroom, you should wait until we are doing an independent activity – not during silent reading and not when I am teaching You can signal to me you need to leave by raising your hand with 2 fingers up If you need to go to the nurse, raise your hand with 1 finger up
Using the Bathroom and Leaving Class If you do need to leave, you will have to use your HAWK pass. Your HAWK pass allows you to leave the classroom up to 6 times per marking period but NO MORE. After each use, your pass will need to be hole- punched Any unused punches will be counted as extra credit points for your report card USE YOUR PASS VERY WISELY!! There are no replacements if you lose it.
What if I am late to class? If you are late, you will need a pass to class from where you are coming from. Come into the classroom and either hand it to me or place it on the desks at the front of the room
Sharpening pencils You must sharpen your pencils at the beginning of class Bring extra pencils in case your lead breaks You may sharpen your pencils during times when we are not reading and I am not in front of the room teaching If you need to borrow pencils from me, you will need to give me one of your shoes I will return your shoe at the end of class when you give me back the pencil.
When you need supplies If we are doing projects, I will provide the necessary materials unless I have told you in advance ask Please ask before using any materials in the back pink and teal bins beginning If you need a pencil, you must ASK at the beginning of class
When you finish an activity early If we are doing an activity and you notice you finished it before everyone, please read silently at your desk, or you may work on an assignment due at a later date (i.e. RRJ or Spelling Sentences)
When you forget your binder and supplies If you forget your supplies and they are in your locker, you may use your HAWK pass to go get them. If you left them at home, you are expected to take your papers from today’s class and put them in the right section when you get home!
Leaving Class I will dismiss you – NOT the bell When you leave, you must push in your chairs and leave quietly
