FRIDAY AUGUST 8TH
Complete the survey you picked up at the front of the room silently until the timer goes off. If you finish early, sit in SLANT.
The first rule you need to learn for this class is that BOARD = PAPER.
What this means: if you see Ms. Wallace writing on the smart board or white board, you ALWAYS write the same. Her board reflects your notes paper. We take "guided notes" in this class, so you will be required to always pay attention and fill in the blanks in your notes. We will start with today.
classroom procedures notes
*you will be quizzed on these procedures next week!*
how to enter the room:
1. Come in silently and pick up class materials on the table at the front of the room.
2. Go straight to your seat *WITHOUT TALKING* and begin the "Do Now."
3. If you finish the Do Now early, you may read your DEAR book. Stay silent.
Why is it important to do the "do now" in complete silence?
"Do nows" and "exit tickets" are counted for a quiz grade. if you do not complete them silently and to the best of your ability, you *will* get a zero for that day.

1st wallace fun fact:
Ms. Wallace grew up at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington D.C., where she learned American Sign Language. Over the course of the year, she will be teaching you signs as you earn them! We will learn the signs for "YES" and "NO" today!
If you have an issue that is not related to what is going on in class, you may write Ms. Wallace a private note and hold it up for her. Make sure it is addressed like a proper letter.
RULES: Do not call out or get upset if Ms. Wallace takes her time to get your note. She is busy teaching! She will not pay attention to the note if it does not have proper grammar and complete sentences.
Good reasons for private notes: emergencies only
example of a good note:
