By the end of the period, scholars will be able to complete ten questions by working independently and in groups in order to demonstrate understanding of classroom procedures. Today’s Objective
Tardiness: Be on Time! You will be considered late if you are not inside the classroom when the bell rings (no exceptions). Once the bell rings, the door will be locked. If you find that it is locked, DO NOT knock on the door, peer through the window, etc. This behavior disrupts the learning taking place inside the class and will result in an automatic lunch detention. If you’re late, you must first retrieve a tardy pass. You will not be allowed entry until you return with one. Place your tardy pass in the pink bucket found on the desk when you first walk in the door. Begin your bell work immediately. You will not be given additional time to complete it. If you’re late (for any reason), you will owe the teacher one minute after class.
Worksheets will be provided on the desk located near the door. Please take a worksheet. There will not be a worksheet every day. Please continue to your seat if there is no worksheet. Worksheets
Students must walk directly to their seats, sit down, and begin their bell work once the bell rings. There is simply NO TIME for wandering, chatting, goofing off, horseplay, etc. If you have questions about grades, make-up work, or if you have a grade check for me to sign, please see me at lunch in room 130. 56 Minutes Isn’t Much Time!
The warm-up assignment (bell work) will be written on the board and will be the first assignment we complete each day. Bell work will be completed in your spiral notebook and will be checked for completion every Friday. Bell work is a timed, graded assignment. For example, you may be given seven minutes to write a paragraph, or ten minutes to complete a test- practice. If you have not finished, you will not be given additional time to complete this assignment. Bell Work
The Bell The bell is used to get your attention. Students MUST BE quiet and listen to the teacher after they hear the sound of the bell. Students choosing not to follow this rule will be given a lunch detention. This is your only warning!
Bathroom Passes You will receive 4 bathroom passes a quarter. If you need to use the restroom, simply notify the teacher, place a bathroom pass in the bucket by the door, and take our hall pass (located under the light switch). Bathroom breaks are limited to five minutes. (If you take longer, you will owe the teacher one minute after class). Only one person may leave at a time. Unused bathroom passes will be worth 5 points per pass for a total of 20 extra credit points at the end of the quarter.
Am I going to be called upon in this class? The short answer: YES The long answer: Your seats contain a letter and a color. Locate your letter and color (A or B/ Red, Blue, or Green). Sometimes all A’s will be called upon. Other times all greens will be called upon, etc. Individuals and groups from each side of the room will be called upon randomly using equity sticks. Let’s practice!
Your “A/B” partner is the person seated next to you. You will be completing pair share activities with this individual. A/B partners will be changed about once every two weeks. A/B Partners
Introduce yourself to your A/B partner. On the worksheet provided, write the following: 1. One thing you and your partner have in common. 2. One thing you and your partner do not have in common. A/B Partner Task
You are now seated in a group of four; this is your quad. You will be working on many assignments and projects with this group. You will also be participating in many competitions with this group. QUADS
