learning of others. In the event that you choose not to I will ask you

There are procedures for everything in
life. Each teacher does them differently.
This is what will work for us…
During transitions, your teacher expects:
•You to clean everything up quickly and quietly before we move on.
•If you have homework that has been assigned, that needs to be put away
properly. Where would be a good place to put it?
•I expect us to be able to transition properly the first time. If we have to try it
again it takes away from your learning and free time.
Every morning, you can expect to:
•Meet me in the gym against the wall. When the rest of the school is ready to
stand, we will head upstairs.
•When we arrive at the classroom, I love to greet you with a hand shake and
hello. Eye contact is very important to me!!!!
•When you enter you will immediately vote for your lunch choice and head
quietly to your seat.
•Each morning there will be instructions on the board for where to turn your
homework in. If your work isn’t turned in, I assume it isn’t done.

I have a very simple pencil sharpening rule:
Please don’t sharpen your pencils while I am teaching, during silent reading,
or at a time where it would interfere with other’s learning.
Please sharpen your pencils before specials in the morning, during
independent work time, or at the end of the day while we are waiting for our
end of the day dismissal announcement.
Leaving the Classroom
When you need to leave the classroom, I expect:
•You need to sign out on the bathroom clipboard.
•If you are using the bathroom, you need to take the “bathroom pass” and place
it on your desk. Let’s talk about bathroom expectations.
•If you need to leave the classroom for any reason other than the bathroom,
you need to ask first.
Homework expectations in 5th
There will be homework every day. Do your best ~ always try!
•I expect your agenda to be filled out every day and after each class.
•If you get home and forget the homework, it is always posted on our class website.
• You do earn a mark if you don’t do your homework. You may be asked to go to
lunch homework club if your work isn’t done.
End of the Day
At the end of the day, your teachers expects:
Remember, Mrs. Lammers will call for walkers, car riders, and then buses.
•We will stop every day at 3:05 to get ready to go home.
•Agendas will need to be filled out.
•I will hand out Smart Bead notes that have been earned that day.
•Everyone is expected to clean up the floor around them. Take initiative, even if it
isn’t your garbage.
•While waiting for your dismissal, this time is used to silently read or
work on homework.
I expect you to be in class everyday.
•Try not to miss school.
•I miss you when you are gone!
You have to make up the work you missed.
2 days to turn in absent work.
If I am absent, where can I find my work packet?
