I feel that a positive relationship between parents, teachers, and students will make for a successful learning environment. As a class, we have agreed to uphold our responsibilities so that our classroom will be a safe, secure and fair learning environment.
Our classroom rules: Be Respectful to others, Show Responsibility & Always Be Honest.
Always BE PREPARED FOR CLASS with supplies including: homework, assignments, and textbooks.
“Fishing For Compliments”
To promote honesty & respect, each day the class has the opportunity to earn “Compliment Fish” for our classroom fish bowl. The purpose of this fish bowl is to reward the entire class for good behavior, respect, remembering to bring things back to school, compliments earned as a group for good behavior, etc. When the class reaches the goal of earning twenty “Compliment Fish” they will receive a special reward. I look forward to many rewards.
Every Friday, your child will be coming home with completed work and important information from the week. Please look over the contents of this “mail” including assignments that may need corrections. Your child has the opportunity to make corrections to these assignments and turn them back in to me for partial credit. If your child makes any corrections on papers please sign and return the work on Mondays. I will also include any important notes that need to be sent home that week.
Quarterly, the children will explore a different genre and have a book project. The project and requirements will be sent home at the beginning of the month. This is a great way for children to be exposed to a variety of books and to enhance reading for meaning as well as enjoyment! The children will also be presenting their projects to the class to improve our "oral" presentation skills.
Monthly Reading & Math Logs
Included in our morning schedule will be a brief snack period. It is recommended that a healthy snack is brought to school. Suggested snacks include fruits, cheese & crackers, pretzels, veggies, trail mix, granola bars or yogurt. Unhealthy treats such as chips or candy will not be allowed.
