The student will be given their own folder. It will contain the following items : math page with a parent example and reading choice board. My emphasis is on their reading. Please spend time reading with them and/or give them a special place to read by themselves. Again, family time is special and the work is based on what we learned. Their folders are brought back everyday (even if they are empty) and the work should be completed by Friday. If the student does not bring in their homework, they can finish it up and return it on Monday. If it is not returned by Monday, it will be unexcused. If there is a family emergency, I will excuse the work.
Positive Incentives for good behavior.
Points are earned by following the 7 habits of Highly Effective People. It will be taught to the students. It follows these principles of LEAD which means:
Everyone is Valued
Achieving Our Goal
Do the Right thing
Here are some examples
following directions as a whole class
working cooperatively together
showing acts of kindness and respect.
When we all reach the class points, there be a reward for them.
Verbal reminder to the student and reminder of expectations.
Next step is a quick conference w/teacher.
If disrespectful behavior continues, reflection time will be given -students fill out in detail the choices on a form. It will be sent home for you to discuss with your child. The paper needs to be returned and signed by you.
Your child will be celebrated with a special pinwheel given to them by me and a song. School policy does not allow us to distribute "goodie" bags, cupcakes, or invitations.
