CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS & PROCEDURES
Classroom expectations will stem from the following core values (P.R.I.D.E.) in my classroom:
- Punctuality: Be on time and ready to learn when the class starts.
- Respect: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
- Integrity: Know and do what is right, and also be truthful to yourself and others.
- Determination: NEVER EVER give up.
- Enthusiasm: Embrace opportunities to contribute. Carpe Diem!
All students will be given detailed instructions on the core values mentioned above in the P.R.I.D.E. matrix that will provide students the opportunity to self-manage and take ownership of their actions and choices.
Other general expectations:
- Be safe.
- Be neat.
- Be kind.
- Follow the student code of conduct.
First, students will enter the classroom and, before sitting down, each student will write their name on a Post-It note and place it on the “Mental Health Check-In” chart under one of the following categories depending on how they feel at that time:
- I’m great
- I’m good
- I’m OK
- I’m sad or mad
- I’m sad or mad and NEED a Check-In
Next, students will proceed to open seating (students’ choice until seating needs to be changed) where they will be greeted by a teacher and then prompted on a daily interactive journal activity.
Then, students will participate in daily discussions on an array topics designed to teach and increase social skills.
Finally, students will then participate in individual and group activities that will encourage growth and development in the areas of reading and writing skills.
