Individual Restroom Break If you need to use the restroom, stand at the back of the room and hold up your thumb. Wait for me to respond by nodding my head or holding up my thumb.
Im done with my work! You have a few choices if you finish your work early… Read your A.R. book, or… Read one of my books, or… Work one of the Brain Teaser sheets Never tell the teacher that youre finished with your work
When the teacher raises her hand… This means that you do the same This means that you should stop talking and make eye contact with me Class, class!!! If you hear me say, Class, class!, you are to repeat it exactly as I say it. This is another way I may get your attention. LETS PRACTICE!
Homework & Class Work Homework should always go in the homework bin Class work should always go in the top tray
Hallway Behavior Walk in a single-file line Do not talk in the hall Stay on the red squares If you see a friend from another class, you may wave and smile at them, but please do not talk to them
