Why have classroom procedures? Procedures are a way of life! We have procedures in life so that people can function in society knowing the acceptable and efficient ways people do things. There are also procedures in this classroom. These procedures are here so that you always know what to do. Less confusion = More success!!
Entering the Classroom: Please enter the room walking straight to your desk. When you reach your desk, immediately get out your supplies: pencil or pen, paper, science notebooks. Immediately begin working on your Bell Work assignment for the day Bell Work is always listed on the board in the same place.
Bell Work Procedure Every day you will have Bell Work to complete. Don’t wait for the bell, start working immediately when you get to your desk. (you will have 5-8 minutes to complete the assignment.) The Bell Work assignment is always listed on the board in the same location. Do your Bell Work assignment in your science notebook, unless you are directed otherwise When you have finished Bell Work, be ready to discuss it as a class. If you finish early, you may work on another assignment quietly until the class is ready.
