2 Home/School Communication
Working together will help our students to succeed. If you or your student have any questions, please feel free to contact me. ing is a great way to communicate with me quickly. I may not be able to respond immediately, but I will get back to you as soon as possible. You may also send things in with your student in their folder. Students should check their folders daily for mail and communication. However, things can get lost in the shuffle between home, bus, and school. If there is anything important or confidential, please or call me.

3 SCHOOL RULES Take care of yourself Take care of others
Take care of your school

4 CLASS RULES The Golden Rule
Treat others as you would like to be treated Listen quietly, make eye contact, and be respectful when someone is speaking Respect yourself and others Keep hands and feet to yourself Be cooperative and considerate when working in groups Use your manners Please, Thank You, Your Welcome, Excuse Me, May I

5 Classroom Management I believe in Dan Gartrell’s “Guidance Based Approach” By creating a proper and positive relationship between student and teacher, management will be successful. Classroom management is adjustable to meet the needs of the students in this class. To create a positive environment, I focus on praise and positive rewards.

6 Positive Rewards Whole Class- When the whole class cooperates and behaves appropriately, we add marbles to a jar. Results in, class rewards such as movies, lunch in classroom, pajama day, etc… Group Rewards- New teams work together each month to receive rewards- extra recess, lunch in the classroom Individual- Behavior Calendar Prize box Phone calls home Positive notes Stickers
