Our classroom is a strong team, reaching for the same basic goals to achieve.

We listen to each other and respect each other. We will keep our classroom clean and organized. We will believe in our classmates and ourselves and try our very best. We know school is important and we get to learn things that we will use now and later in life.

Procedure 1: Entering the classroom

Procedure 2: Morning meeting
• • • People can share when they have the ball in their hands. The line leader for the day is picked out of a jar. The teacher will tell them what is going on for the day and any extra information.

Procedure 3: Going to specials
• • The line leader for the day leads them to and back from specials. Everyone should be quiet when walking in the hall.

Procedure 4: Questions
• • • Students are always expected to raise their hand. Do not interrupt your classmates or your teacher when they are talking. If your teacher is talking one on one with someone, the student that needs something should place his or her hand on the teachers arm quietly. The teacher will acknowledge the child when there is a break in the conversation he/she is currently attending to.

Procedure 5: Bathroom breaks
• • The students go before the bell rings in the morning, recess break, lunch break, and snack break. Unless it is urgent the students will not leave in the middle of class to use the restroom.

Procedure 6: Homework

The homework will include: math practice, spelling/ phonics, and reading for 20 minutes with an adult. Every Monday the students will bring back a reading log that has 100 minutes logged and signed by an adult. If a student has any assignment not turned in on time it will be completed during recess time.

Procedure 7: Drills (e.g. fire/tornado)
• • Everyone quietly and quickly stands up, pushes in their chairs and gets in a single file line. Line leaders do not matter in this instance.

Procedure 8: Special Events
• Field Trips: Students have to have permission slips in on time in order to go. The line leader does not matter in this instance. The same classroom rules apply during the field trips. School assemblies: The same classroom rules apply, the line leader for the day gets to lead the class.

Procedure 9: Substitute Teacher
• The teacher will be given an evaluation sheet of the class that will let me know when I get back if the students followed the classroom rules, and respected their teacher. The same classroom rules will apply. Students are able to help make sure things go smoothly.

Procedure 10: Dismissal

Crisis Plan
(http://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/module/beh2/cresource/how-do-you-develop-aneffective-behavior-management-plan/page-8-crisis-plan/#content)

1: A designated student goes to the office with a card that states a behavioral crisis is underway with the teacher’s name, and room number on it. Then school personal can act quickly. 2: The other students will go quietly into a teacher’s room that has agreed to take the students. The students are to just sit in the back and listen to the lesson. 3: Help the student regain self-control. 4: Once the crisis has been addressed bring the rest of the students into the classroom. 5: Notify the student's parents of the incident.
