  • We’ll do these as long as when I need your complete and total attention you immediately give it to me.

  • I’ll give you a signal when I need your complete attention

Give me five
Give Me Five!

  • When I raise my hand and/or say “Give me five” you will:

    Stop talking

    Raise your hand as well

    Look at me

Class rules
Class Rules

  • Be Respectful

  • Treat the books and supplies in this classroom with great care

  • Treat the people in this classroom with great care

  • Be prepared and organized

  • Work Hard

Being respectful
Being Respectful

  • Make eye contact.When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times. If someone else makes a comment, turn and face that person.

  • During discussions,respect other students’ comments, opinions, and ideas. When possible, make statements like, “I agree with John, and I also feel that…” or “I disagree with Victor. He made a good point, but I feel that…” or “I think Sarah made an excellent observation, and it made me realize…”

Being respectful1
Being Respectful

  • If you are asked a question in conversation, you should ask a question in return.

    • For example,

      • Mrs. Taylor: “Did you have a good weekend?”

      • You: “Yes, I had a great time. My family and I went sky diving. What about you? Did you have a nice weekend?”

    • It is only polite to show others that you are just as interested in them as they are in you.

Being respectful2
Being Respectful

  • Do not smack your lips, tsk, roll your eyes, or show disrespect with gestures.

  • Say, “Please,” “Thank you,” and “I’m sorry” when appropriate.

Treating others with care
Treating Others with Care

  • If someone bumps into you, even if it was not your fault, say, “Excuse me.”

  • Hold the door for people rather than letting it close on them

  • If someone drops something, and you are close to it, pick it up

  • Do not save seats in the lunchroom

Treating others with care1
Treating Others with Care

  • Do not stare at a student who is being reprimanded. You wouldn’t want others looking at you if you were in trouble, so don’t look at others in that situation.

  • Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness


  • I do not expect to have many behavior problems in this class. However, here are the general consequences you may expect when you choose to break a rule.

    • First: Verbal Warning

    • Second: Note, email, or phone call home

    • Third: After school meeting with student and parents and time-out in team teacher’s room

    • Fourth: Principal’s office

  • In the case of serious offences, such as fighting, cheating, or serious disrespect, the student can expect to go immediately to the Principal’s office
