In order for children to have a successful day at school, they must know exactly what is expected of them through modeling and the use of procedures. I believe that this will prevent the majority of problems that could occur. When problems do arise, your child will be held responsible for their choices in my classroom and here at school. We will spend time building a sense of community, and learning to work together so that everyone can learn as much as possible. Class Rule: Make no problem for yourself, your friends, or your teachers. Any problem you create will be yours to solve. 8 Expectations: (We will learn these together as a class and recite them daily.)
1.We will value one another as unique and special individuals.
2.We will not laugh at or make fun of a person’s mistakes, use sarcasm or putdowns.
3.We will use good manners saying please, thank you, excuse me, and let others go first.
4.We will cheer each other to success.
5.We will help one another whenever possible.
6.We will recognize every effort and applaud it.
7.We will encourage each other to do our best.
8.We will practice virtuous living using the Life Principles.
Consequences: Your child will be treated with dignity and respect by dealing with their behavior individually. Consequences will be logical according to the choices your child made.
Procedures: There are set procedures for most everything we do here at school such as standing in line, etc. There is a procedure book to refer to when needed. We will practice our class procedures in depth during the first weeks of school. Magic Triad: The Magic Triad consisting of a kind word, kind smile, and a nice touch will help contribute to the climate of mutual respect in our classroom.
