MR. WILSON’S CLASS PROCEDURES

 

FOR OUR CLASS TO BE A SAFE PLACE OF LEARNING, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE CERTAIN PROCEDURES THAT WE USE EVERY TIME. PLEASE, READ THESE CAREFULLY AND BEGIN TO USE THEM EACH DAY. DON’T WORRY, WE WILL PRACTICE AND REHEARSE EACH OF THESE MANY TIMES DURING THE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL.

ENTERING THE CLASSROOM

PLEASE USE THE RESTROOM BEFORE CLASS. ENTER THE ROOM QUIETLY AND CALMLY. SCHOOL BEGINS WHEN YOU ENTER THE DOOR.

MORNING ROUTINE

AFTER ENTERING THE ROOM:  PUT BACKPACK AWAY, SHARPEN AT LEAST TWO PENCILS, TURN IN ANY HOMEWORK, CHECK BOARDS FOR ANY SPECIAL MESSAGES, AND BEGIN MORNING WORK.

TARGET THE QUESTION/MOUNTAIN LANGUAGE

YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO COMPLETE THESE DAILY AS PART OF YOUR MORNING WORK ROUTINE. THE ASSIGNMENT WILL BE POSTED ON THE BOARD AND YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO KEEP UP WITH THE WORK UNTIL EACH UNIT IS COMPLETED AT THE END OF THE WEEK.

END OF DAY

THE TEACHER WILL DISMISS THE CLASS, NOT THE BELL. THE ROOM WILL BE CLEANED, MAILBOXES CHECKED, CHAIRS STACKED, AND YOUR BACKPACKS AND SUPPLIES FROM THE LOCKERS.  OUR CLASS MOTTO WILL BE QUOTED AND THE CLASS WILL BE DISMISSED.

SEEKING ATTENTION OR PERMISSION

DURING CLASS, PLEASE REFER TO THE POSTER IN THE ROOM TO GAIN ATTENTION OR PERMISSION.

1 FINGER – RESTROOM

HAND – FOR ASSISTANCE

FIST - EXPLAIN INSTRUCTIONS AGAIN

PENCIL - NEED A SHARPENED PENCIL

COMING TO ATTENTION

WE WILL USE THE “GIVE ME FIVE” PROCEDURE. WHEN A TEACHER SAYS, “GIVE ME FIVE”, EACH STUDENT WILL RAISE THEIR HAND AND FOCUS ATTENTION ON THE TEACHER. HANDS WILL REMAIN UP UNTIL THE TEACHER BEGINS SPEAKING. REFER TO THE POSTER IN THE ROOM.

HEADINGS

THE PROPER HEADING IS POSTED IN THE ROOM, AND WILL BE USED ON ALL PAPERS. PAPERS WITHOUT A NAME WILL BE PLACED IN THE NO NAME TRAY.  YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO CLAIM YOUR PAPER, WRITE YOUR NAME, AND TURN IT IN.

FINISHING WORK EARLY

WHEN YOU FINISH WORK EARLY, YOU MAY WORK ON OTHER UNFINISHED WORK, OTHER ASSIGNED WORK, OR READ SILENTLY.

LINING UP

YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PLEASE STAND. YOU WILL STAND BEHIND YOUR CHAIR QUIETLY. THE TEACHER WILL THEN SAY PLEASE LINE UP. WE WILL THEN WALK SLOWLY AND QUIETLY WITHOUT BUMPING OTHERS TO LINE UP FACING FORWARD, ONE PERSON BEHIND THE OTHER.

WALKING IN THE HALL

WE WILL WALK QUIETLY ONE BEHIND THE OTHER FACING FORWARD. WE WILL AVOID TOUCHING OTHERS OR THE WALLS.

VISITORS IN ROOM

IF A VISITOR ENTERS THE ROOM, WE WILL REMAIN QUIET AND RESPECTFUL.

MANNERS

SINCE WE ARE “KIDS WITH CHARACTER”, WE WILL USE PLEASE, THANK YOU, YOU’RE WELCOME, YES SIR (MA’AM), ETC., TO TEACHERS, GUESTS, AND EACH OTHER.

CLASS SCHEDULE

THE CLASS SCHEDULE WILL BE POSTED. PLEASE HAVE SUPPLIES READY.

MAKEUP WORK

IF YOU ARE ABSENT, CHECK YOUR MAILBOX FOR MAKEUP WORK. IF IT IS NOT THERE, PLEASE ASK THE TEACHER.  YOU WILL HAVE ONE DAY FOR EACH DAY MISSED IN ORDER TO COMPLETE AND TURN IN YOUR WORK.

HOMEWORK

WE WILL HAVE SHORT HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS DURING THE WEEK.  THIS IS IN ADDITION TO ANY WORK NOT COMPLETED DURING THE DAY.   YOU ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR READING 20 MINUTES A NIGHT.

MOVING AROUND THE ROOM

WHEN MOVING IN THE ROOM, WE WILL WALK SLOWLY AND QUIETLY. WE WILL KEEP OUR HANDS AND FEET OFF OF OTHERS, AND AVOID BUMPING INTO FURNITURE OR EQUIPMENT.

BROKEN PENCILS

PLEASE HAVE TWO SHARPENED PENCILS TO BEGIN EACH DAY. IF BOTH PENCILS BREAK, YOU MAY RAISE YOUR PENCIL, AND WHEN GIVEN PERMISSION, YOU MAY SHARPEN YOUR PENCIL.

HANDING IN WORK

A CHOSEN STUDENT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PICKING UP COMPLETED WORK DURING THE DAY. THIS WILL AVOID ANY DISTRACTIONS THAT MIGHT OCCUR WITH TOO MANY STUDENTS UP AT ONE TIME.

PARENT SIGNATURES

MANY TIMES DURING THE YEAR A PARENT SIGNATURE WILL BE REQUESTED. STUDENTS WHO RETURN THE PAPER THE NEXT DAY WILL EARN TICKETS.

PROGRESS REPORTS

PROGRESS REPORTS WILL BE SENT HOME EVERY 3RD WEEK OF EACH 6-WEEK GRADING PERIOD.  A PARENT SIGNATURE IS REQUIRED AND NEEDS TO BE RETURNED THE FOLLOWING DAY. 

WATER

YOU MAY HAVE A WATER BOTTLE EACH DAY IN OUR CLASSROOM.  YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FILL YOUR BOTTLE WHEN WE TAKE RESTROOM BREAKS.  ANY STUDENT FOUND PLAYING WITH OR USING A WATER BOTTLE INAPPROPRIATELY WILL LOOSE THIS PRIVILEGE.

 
I KNOW THAT THIS SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF PROCEDURES, BUT VERY SOON THEY WILL BECOME HABIT AND ROUTINE TO OUR CLASS. PLEASE WORK HARD TO MAKE THESE A PART OF YOUR DAY. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW EXCITING OUR CLASS WILL BE. I KNOW THAT YOU WILL SOAR.
