  • 8. Help

    • I will try to answer your question immediately, but you may have to wait until after I have greeted all of the students at the door
  • 9. Activity

    • Student receives note and has to be signed by parent(s) and returned the following day.
    • If it’s not returned the next day the student(s) will receive paper pick-up.
    • It’s also a means of communication between the teacher and the parents.
  • 17. Tardy Sheet
    • Student has to sign in at the front table when he/she is tardy.
    • If student has a tardy slip, it must be stapled to the tardy sheet.
    • This minimizes disruption of lesson
    • Teacher keeps it as record for parent conferences.
    • For use in work habits grade
  • 18. Positive to Negative Ratio
    • To keep a positive atmosphere in the classroom, teacher praises three positive behaviors for every one negative behavior that occurs.
  • 19. Time is Valuable!
    • Time your class for every activity.
    • They should be able to do everything in a minute or less.
    • When the minute is up, students are expected to wait quietly for the next directions.
  • 20. Repetition
    • Students should repeat important information after you in order to ensure that all students have heard the directions.
    • This is to avoid having twenty kids asking the same information.
  • 21. Homework/Agenda Planner
    • Students are required to have their homework and agenda ready on the corner of their desks as soon as they walk into class.
    • Teacher checks for completion for each student.
  • 22. Homework Excuse Sheet
    • On a front desk or table, have a stack of Homework Excuse Sheets.
    • When students walk into class, they should automatically pick up an excuse sheet if they did not do their homework.
    • Students fill it in explaining why homework has not been completed.
    • Great for use in parent conferences and work habits grades!
  • 23. The Golden Rule 
    • One piece of advice that we try to go by in our classrooms is to treat others the way we would want to be treated.
    • Respect goes a long way.
    • Start by greeting students at the door.
    • Using “Please” and “Thank you” models good manners for our students. 
  • 24. Thank you!
