I placed the telephone/intercom at the entrance of the door. By having it in the corner of the entrance, I’m able to communicate with the office or parents, but also can have some privacy by having the phone at some distance from the students. At the entrance, I have a bulletin board with class pictures and birthdays. I also have a small table for the lunch count.
Teacher’s Desk and Storage
I have my desk in the front corner. This way, while I am working on something at my desk, I am able to look out and see the whole classroom. I have a computer at my desk to be able to answer e-mails or print off any materials needed. I have my bookcase and filing cabinet placed behind me, so that students are not able to access my grades or my teaching materials. Behind my desk I have on display some of my person items – for example, diploma, teaching credentials, and personal paraphernalia about myself. I would like the students to know about me and my personal qualifications. I have placed the trash cans at different sides of the room for accessibility. I placed one near my desk, so that I am able to easily throw things away when needed. I placed a pencil sharpener again at different sides of the room, so that student’s do not get congested in one area of the classroom.
Reading and library areas
There is also a two sided bookcase. By having the bookcase two sided, I have more books in the classroom. On the other side of the entrance, I have a bookcase of all of our math tools. These include clear plastic containers of different objects that are used for math games. Any other tools that are helpful during math lessons are also be included in the bookcase. Right next to my desk on the other side of the two sided bookcase, I have a reading corner with bean bag chairs. This way while students are working in the reading center, they can also have some comfort and be near the bookshelf to select the books they would like to read. I have the guided reading area on the side of the wall. I included one long table, so I could work with small groups during reading. I sit on the side closest to the window, so I am able to face the classroom and the student’s I am working with. This way, I am able to observe all of the students. By having the student’s I am working with face the wall, I am creating a less distracting environment. These students cannot look around the classroom and see what their classmates are doing quite as easily. This table is also used for student conferences, benchmarking, etc.
Restroom and Sink
The sink and restroom is located in the back corner, so it is away from the classroom. When students are going to the bathroom, I don’t want it to be a distraction. By keeping it in the back corner, this can help eliminate distractions from the classroom.
Along the other side of the wall, I have a computer center with 4 computers lined up against the wall. I have them facing the wall, so while I was walking around the classroom, I would be able to observe what the students are doing on the computer screen. Next to the set of computers are two cans: one for sharpened pencils labeled “Ready to Write” and another for dull pencils labeled “Sharpen Please.”
Morning Meeting and Daily Schedule Area
In the corner is the class meeting area rug and Easel. This is where all the morning activities, mini-lessons, read-alouds, etc., take place. I use the rug as the placement of where all of the students need to sit during these activities. Behind the rug on the wall, I have a Dry Erase board and a daily schedule. This way there is a large writing space available for lessons and I also have the schedule listed clearly for all the student’s to see when they come in the classroom in the morning.
On the other side of the cubbies there is storage for science materials. I included this near the sink because many science experiences need water or a sink, so having science materials near the sink is beneficial. I have the science center and the social studies area near the class meeting area rug. By having them near the class meeting area rug, when I discuss these centers in the morning, they are nearby and the student’s do not need to move around the room to be able to see what I am talking about.
Elmo and White Board
I have an Elmo put towards the front of the class. I use this for lessons to the whole class. The screen projector is in front of the same wall as the white board. I am able to use the white board during instructional periods if I did not want to use the Elmo.
There are 4 desks put together to make a table pod. I label each table pod a color, so that the students can be dismissed by colored pods. Table pods are used to create a sense of classroom community. These pods also help facilitate group discussions. These tables are centrally located in the room, so I can easily walk around the classroom while the students are working on activities.
My classroom design is flexible and will change in order to accommodate a variety of factors that may arise during the year.
Teacher Operational Procedures
Students will know what to expect during center time, by listening to Mrs. Harned’s instructions. During the schedule “center time” each day students will go to the center they are assigned to. There will be a set amount of time each day to spend at the center. Mrs. Harned will let students know when it is time to rotate to a new center. Centers Include: 1. Science 2. Social Studies 3. Computer 4. Math Work 5. Guided Reading Students will know which center they start with by the Center Chart on the White Board. The Center Chart will have a list of all of the names of the students in the class. Close pins will have the names of each center listed on them. Close pins will be clipped to the students name to indicate which center they will go to on that day. Mrs. Harned will move the close pins at the end of center time. Center subjects may change depending on the time of year and areas of study.
Attendance and Lunch Procedures
As students enter the classroom, there will be a cup with tongue depressor sticks that include all of their names. The students will place their stick in the appropriate basket – red basket labeled hot lunch, yellow basket labeled alternative lunch, or blue basket labeled brought lunch from home. Attendance will be taken with the remainder sticks. I will check to see if those students are absent or if they forgot to make their lunch choice.
Each assignment will be recorded by subject, student name, date and assignment name. A three-line student record book will be used so attendance, assignment grade, and cumulative scores will be noted. If Whaley Gradebook software is available, grades will be entered weekly online and printed out for hard copy records instead of recording by hand. Portfolio binders will be created to show examples of the students work. These binders will be kept behind my desk. Binders will be divided by different subject areas. These pieces of work will promote student self-evaluation, reflection, and critical thinking. This provides a process for structuring learning in stages.
New Student Procedures
Prior to the first day of school, a welcome letter will be sent out to each of my new students and their parents. The letter will include information about myself and the supplies needed for their first day of school. I will also include any important dates such as open houses and conferences. I will also include a brief description of my classroom procedures, disciplinary policies, and homework. I will include my school contact information, so the parents feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. At the beginning of the year, each student will be greeted as they enter the door. I will make every effort to learn their names quickly. I will tell students their seat is assigned and to find their name on the desk. I will also let the students know there is an assignment on their desk. I will have a sheet of paper on the desk with the words “How I spent my summer vacation.” This will allow the students to be keeping busy as I greet everyone at the door.
New Student Procedures Continued…
I will begin the day by introducing myself to the class. I will show them how to spell it and how to pronounce it. I will tell them where I am from, where I live, where I went to school and why I love teaching. Next, basic procedures will be explained and demonstrated. We will discuss what each day will look like and what the students will be doing during those times. Each day will start off with Bell Work. I will explain to the students what Bell Work is and where they can find it each day and instruct them that they complete this work immediately. Class and safety rules will be explained and handing out to each student. There will be a large sign that was premade with the class rules listed. Each student will be using paint to leave a handprint along the border of the rules. This will be there “signature” to know they agree and understand the rules. More classroom procedures will be explained and practiced as the day continues to the designated times. As new students enter the classroom throughout the year, they will be given a new student bag. I will always have 5 bags premade at the beginning of each year. These bags will include a name tag, tongue depressor stick, birthday candle for our display, labels for folders, spelling folder, take-home folders, notebooks, beginning of the year information notes, classroom rules, name place, etc. I will learn their name quickly and make time to acclimate them to the room and the procedures that are to be followed in class.
Classroom Cleaning Procedures
During the first week of school, I will explain to the students how I would expect the classroom and their desks to look. At the end of the day, I will explain that their desks should be clear of any items on top and neat and clean inside. The students will be responsible for keeping their desk area organized, so they can find their necessary items during the day quickly and efficiently.
Displaying Student Work
During the year, certain assignments will be displayed throughout the room or hallway. Students will know ahead of time which pieces of work will be chosen to be displayed. Work will be displayed from each student in the classroom regardless of abilities. By placing student work around the classroom, I am creating a positive learning environment and showing the students their work is important. Students will be given small 4x5 pieces of paper at the beginning of the year to write their name and decorate as their name plate for their work. These name plates will be laminated and placed on the wall to indicate which piece of work is theirs.
What you can expect from me:
An open line of communication A connection with every student that I teach to An open-mind A willingness to do anything to better the development of each student
What I expect from my students:
Hard work and positive attitude Always try to do their best Be kind and helpful to others Come to school prepared with my homework and supplies
What I expect from parents:
An open line of communication If parents have a problem, please share it Talk with their child each day about his or her school activities Support the school’s discipline policy
In our classroom we follow 3 basic rules: 1. Always do your best! 2. Ask for help. 3. Be polite. I ask that students follow these rules to provide every student with a positive, supportive learning environment. It is my goal to keep my students safe and willing and able to learn. I will do everything in my power to ensure that the students in my classroom get a great education and learn some life skills along the way. Each student will be given a copy of these rules on the first day of class. The rules will be explained and discussed why these rules are important. There will be a large sign that was premade with the class rules listed. Each student will be using paint to leave a handprint along the border of the rules. This will be there “signature” to know they agree and understand the rules. We will also discuss the district rules and policies. These rules will also be discussed during class. Students will be given a hard copy of any district rules. Changes may occur in order to meet the needs of the classroom and its students.
Transitional Attention Getters
When we are transitioning from one subject to the next, there will be a few attention getter phrases to help the students turn their attention and know that Mrs. Harned is ready to teach a new lesson. These Attention Getters are listed in Appendix D.
Behavioral Clip Chart
In my classroom, I use the Behavioral Clip Chart (see Appendix B). The students have a clothespin with their name on it. At the beginning of each day, the student begins on the middle green section labeled “Ready to Learn.” When I notice a behavior, I ask the students to move their clothespin themselves, so they can think about the decisions they are making. All consequences and rewards will be explained to the students, so the students understand what is expected of them and what will happen if they misbehave.
If students go above and beyond during the day, they will be asked to move their clothespin up the clip chart, for example helping a student without being asked. Students earn Star Slips. Star Slips can be “cashed in” at the end of each month. Rewards that can be earned are gum passes, prize from the treasure chest, lunch with the teacher, homework passes, iPod pass, etc.
If a student makes poor choices, they will be asked to move their clothespin down to the yellow section labeled “Think About It.” This is the students warning. The student will ask themselves to think about the behavior they have displayed and why it was a poor choice. If the student continues to make poor decisions, they will be asked to move their clothespin down to Responsibility Examples of poor choices are not trying to complete their work or disrupting other students. If a student reaches the Responsibility Task, they work on the Responsibility Task worksheet to list what they did wrong, how they should have fixed it, and why it is important to follow this procedure. They must sign the sheet along with having their parent’s signature. If the student reaches the Teacher’s Choice, Mrs. Harned decides what privilege should be taken away for that student. Mrs. Harned will decide on an appropriate and fair plan for the student. Examples could include staying in for recess, removing them from a classroom job, removing privilege to sit in a bean bag chair during reading, etc. Some behaviors will result in an automatic note or phone call home to parents. These behaviors include but are not limited to disrespecting the teacher, cheating, fighting on and off the playground, and hitting. These behaviors will require involvement of the principal. Tardiness and absences will be addressed using the school’s policy. If a student knows they will be absent in advance, I will prepare the student’s work to send with them ahead of time.
Entire Class Discipline and Rewards
If the noise in the classroom gets to an unacceptable level, Mrs. Harned will begin the Countdown. Mrs. Harned will hold up a stopwatch and begin the timer. Once the students have quieted down, the stopwatch will be stopped and the time will be totaled. The total amount of time will be the amount of time they “owe” before they can go to recess that day. If recess time is already passed, it will be added the following school day recess time. If the students do not accumulate any time by the end of the day, Mrs. Harned will tell the students the “joke of the day.” Brownie Points will also be used as a positive reward for the entire class. If the entire class is doing a great job, they earn a “Brownie Point.” After 30 brownie points are earned, we will have a class party. A copy of the district, school, and classroom rules will be given to parents at the open house. If a parent cannot attend, a copy will be sent home.
As a teacher, I will model how I would like my students to behave. I will give the students respect and expect the same respect given back in return. As a fellow employee, I will not participate in lounge gossip. I will always be professional and courtesy to all staff members. If I do not agree with a colleague’s personal or professional behavior or views, I will remain respectful and will not let those beliefs get in the way of our professional working relationship. If I do not agree with a colleague or principal’s view, I will voice my opinion when appropriate and necessary and in a professional manner. If the principal makes a decision on the matter, I will respect the decision that is made.
Hello! Welcome to Mrs. Harned’s classroom! We are to have so much fun this year learning and trying new things, getting better at being organized, and meeting new people. There are a few things we must know in order to make our classroom run smoothly. Those things are listed here.
We will go over these classroom procedures the first week of school so you are familiar with them. If at any time we need to take a look to see how things are done, we can look back in this handbook to make sure we are following the correct procedure.
When students forget procedures, I will ask them to look back in the manual to find out what they should be doing. I will then ask them to practice the routine in the correct manner. In short, a phrase to remember is “If you don’t have time to do it right the first time, you should have time to do it again.” I know we are going to have a fantastic year!

At the beginning of the year, Mrs. Harned will create a list of the students in alphabetical order and assign each student to a week of school. This student will be the “Star Student” that week. Parents will be sent this list the first week of school to prepare for their role. 1. Friday prior to their week, a letter will be sent home to the parents. The letter will indicate their child will be the Star Student next week. 2. The student will arrive on Monday with a poster board decorated with pictures and anything they want to share with the class. This can include favorite books, favorite sports or hobbies, favorite animals, pets, etc. 3. Monday: They hang up the poster and get to have the special “Star Student Chair” all week. Students get a Star Student certificate and pencil. They also get to bring in a CD to listen to during work time. 4. Tuesday: They get to share their poster with the class. 5. Wednesday: They get to have lunch with Mrs. Harned. 6. Thursday: Classmates complete the Star Student sheet. They include a positive sentence about that student and draw a picture. The Star Student fills out a sheet about themselves and why they are a Star! These sheets are then collected and a cover is put on the book and taken home on Friday. 7. Friday: The Star Student gets to have a special guest come to class and read to the whole class a book of their choosing.
Students with special needs or disabilities will be accommodated according to their needs. Strategies that will be used with students will vary, but could include Assistive Technology, provide additional computer time, or assistance from a resource teacher or instructional aide. Students who are Second Language Learners will also be accommodated according to their needs. Strategies that will be used with these students will vary, but could include asking questions to other students who speak their language, allowing students to use translation web sites, provide additional computer time, assistances from a language teacher or instructional aide. Students who are considered gifted and talented will have differentiated instruction in order to ensure that they are intellectually challenged. Strategies that will be used with these students will vary, but could include encouraging students to focus on more complex concepts and making connections to other parts of the curriculum or encouraging students to develop leadership skills when working in groups. Students will not be assigned extra work, but work that is more appropriate for their knowledge base.
Starting from the beginning of the year, I will keep constant communication with the parents. Prior to school starting, I will send out a parent questionnaire to find out the best way to contact them, find out if they can volunteer at different events throughout the year, etc. A newsletter will be sent out to parents monthly with information about what the students have been learning, accomplishments, suggestions of things parents can be doing at home with their students, important news, and any upcoming dates and events. It is important to keep an open line of communication between me and the parents. Parents will be able to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
By keeping student record book updated, I will be able to provide the parents with up to date information regarding their student’s progress. This information will include absences and assignments that have not been completed. Portfolio binders will also be shown at conferences to show examples of the students work. These binders can show the parents how their child has progressed throughout the year and what the student needs to work on to improve for the remainder of the year.
