Classroom Management:

It is my goal to provide a learning environment for each child to grow to his or her full potential. The following management plan is designed to assist in working toward this goal.

Classroom Rules:

We have worked together as a class to create rules for our classroom. These are our agreed upon rules:

  • No touching others
  • Listen to others
  • No throwing or kicking anything

In our classroom we have a Ready to Learn chart. Students will start each day on the green level of the Ready to Learn chart. When a second verbal reminder is given about any behavior that negatively affects the learning of the student or the learning of others in the classroom, the student will move to the yellow level of the chart. The student always has the opportunity to move back to the green level when exhibiting “Ready to Learn” behavior. If the student reaches the red level of the chart, then an opportunity will arise for the student, teacher, and parent to develop a plan to help the student stay focused and learn to his or her full potential.

Homework:

Reflection time will take place each day between 2:30-3:00. This is the time of day when students will complete their math concept review sheet and review vocabulary with their teacher.

Each day 1st and 2nd graders will take home a math fact practice worksheet to complete and Kindergarten, 1st, & 2nd will all have spelling practice Monday-Thursday at home. It is important that your child bring their folder back and forth to school each day and that you check their folder each night for homework and announcements from our school office.

Homework has three main purposes:

  • To teach personal responsibility and time management skills
  • To keep parents informed about what their children are learning
  • To increase long-term memory of concepts by reviewing what was learned earlier in the day

Please call if you have any questions about classroom management, homework, or any other questions (684-6873). I look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education.
