Students need to be taught behavior in a safe and
structured environment. The class can spend more time engaged and focused on learning. The students know what is expected of them and they are motivated to achieve.
Classroom Rules
Classroom Procedures
Show Respect
Solve Your Problems
Make Good Decisions
Bell Work
Moving around the room
Morning routine:
Daily routine:
Turning in work
Place your homework in your the correct drawer before sitting down.
Entering the room
Come in to the room walking,
one at a time, with inside voices,
and hands to yourself.
Sit at your seat and quietly work
on the yellow page. If you
finish early, begin your quiet reading.
Stay quiet and listen to the morning
announcements so everyone can hear.
Pencils can be sharpened at recess or before school. Extra supplies are available in the back of the room.
Keep your hands to yourself, walk quietly in the traffic flow direction, and do not disturb others.
Use the restroom at recess so you don't miss portions of the lesson. In emergencies, please ask for permissions and sign the clipboard.
Place your completed work neatly into the Turn-in-Basket.
Student Rewards & Consequences
Caught or reported doing a good deed
Being a good leader and role model
The class will have a behavior chart with
each individual student given their own
clothes pin that tracks the positive accomplishments and behavior that they display throughout the day. They can earn stickers or a prize box visit.

Students also earn group points towards a prize box visit usually at the end of the week.
How can students move up the chart?
Exemplary work
A student that breaks any of the classroom
rules or displays inappropriate behavior will
have consequences. The chance system
allows students to be aware that their
behavior/actions are not allowed and should
be corrected. .
First Chance
The student will move to the "Think About It" level to remind them to make good decisions.
Third Chance
The student will move to the "Parent Contact" level. At the end of the day, the student will be sent home with a "Consequence Sheet". They must explain why they moved to this level and list ways they could have behaved better, have a parent sign it, and turn it in the following morning.
Second Chance
The student will move to the "Teacher's Choice" level and may receive some quiet time or other consequence to think about making good choices. The teacher will counsel them.
What is inappropriate behavior?
Being disruptive or causing distractions
Being harmful or hurtful to others
Not following classroom rules
How can I help my child?
We look forward to spending the year with all of you!
