Stars and Consequences Students who have good behavior for the day will receive a star stamp in their agenda. When a student is caught breaking a rule they will lose a soaring ticket off their desk. If they lose more than two tickets, they will lose their star for the day. A note will be sent home indicating why they lost their star.
Class Dojo and Sand Dollars Students will earn dojo points for good behavior. They will lose points every time they lose a soaring ticket for not following directions and rules. Dojo points can be checked by parents and students at home. Codes will be sent home the first week to create user names and passwords. Students will be able to create their own monster. At the end of the month students will be given sand dollars based on the amount of dojo points they have. Sand dollars can be used to buy a homework pass, lunch bunch, and items from the treasure box.
Eagle Tickets Eagle tickets can be earned by the entire class or for individual students from other teachers. Students earn eagle tickets by SOARing in the classroom, hallway, and cafeteria. Each nine weeks we will set a goal for the amount of tickets we want to earn. If we reach our goal, then they will receive a reward. In the past rewards have been hat day, game day, hot chocolate party, dress up day, and lunch in the garden.
Homework - Homework will be given on a regular basis and is to be turned in on time. - A typical night of homework includes reading for 20 minutes, word study, math, and content. - Homework should take no longer than an hour. - When homework is late they will lose a soaring eagle and a dojo point.
Fun Friday Fun Friday is 15 extra minutes of recess. To earn Fun Friday students must: - Have 3 out of 5 stars (good behavior) - Turned in all homework and classwork on time or have no more than two late assignments. Students who don’t earn Fun Friday will go to study hall to finish their late or incomplete work.
Graded Work and Friday Folders - There will be daily class work. Not all class work will be taken up for a grade. - All graded work (class work, tests, and check up’s) and homework will be returned on Friday afternoon in their Friday folder’s, which should be returned on Monday. - Flyers and other important letters, and order forms will also be in their Friday folder. - I do not check the folders when they come back on Monday, so it is the student’s responsibility to turn in any important papers and/or money.
Please let us know… If you know your child is going to be tardy to school or being picked up early please send a note in advanced or email me AND Mrs. O’Sullivan in the main office. Students must be picked up in the main office and will be not released from the classroom. If you know your child is going home differently, please send a note on that day. If you forget, email Mrs. O’Sullivan. Without a note your child will have to go home how they normally do so.
Grades In third grade students receive a letter grade for each subject and a number grade for each objective within each subject. A = Outstanding B = Very Good C = Satisfactory D = Needs Improvement F = Not Performing 4 = Exceeds Standard 3 = Meets Standard 2 = Progressing Towards Standard 1 = Below Standard
Learning Progression Scale Graded assignments will be given a score of 4, 3.5, 3, 2, or 1 Students must receive a 3.5 (90% or higher) and have correctly answered at least two or more level 4 (higher level thinking) questions in order to receive a 4.
Class Work, Tests, Quizzes, Check Up’s and Projects in Clarity Class work assignments will have an F next to the title of the assignment. Class work will not affect their grade for the subject, but will affect their objective grade. Tests, quizzes/check ups, and projects will have a S next to the title of the assignment. These assignments will affect their grade for the subject and their objective grade. X = Excused – does not hurt grade Z = Not excused – will hurt grade and will appear in missing assignments 0 = Not excused – will hurt grade and won’t appear in missing assignments
Seven Day Rule There will be a seven day grace period between when the assignment is due and when the grade will appear. Until the grade is posted it will look like your child got a zero. Do not panic!
