the Rules & rationales
If there is not kindness in a classroom, it can become a very chaotic and a negative environment for the students.
How I will teach this rule?: If a student is saying unkind words to another student I will have them move their name badge to the next zone. (Explained in slide 9)
If there is negligence of respect for the property or personal space of a student by another student, that leads to a volatile classroom environment.
How will I teach this rule?: Depending on the severity of the property/personal space violation, I will either give them a warning or immediately call home/the principle.
Classroom layout & rationale
Zone & Sticker Charts
Sign in/out sheet
The students sit at tables because I don’t like the box-type desks most 2nd grade classrooms have, it also allows for break-sessions for them to get the needed things out of their cubby-holes when changing lessons/activities.
I placed the problem student near me and an excelling student so when I ‘PRAISE A NEARBY STUDNET’ it might rub off on him.
I also Placed the esol student near the front and with an excelling student to help them if need be.
the ese student is near the front.
I placed the supplies/pencil sharpen in the back and near my desk so there will be less class interruptions and so I can keep track of student’s work.
The students are in teams of 4 to increase learning capability. I also plan on having learning games/lessons, so it saves time to already have them in groups.
My desk is in the back of the room so I’ll be able to watch over all of the students better.
Rewards & Consequences
Every student has a name badge. They all start off in Zone 1 (dark green) everyday, if a student breaks a rule they have to move it one zone. If they stay in the “green zones” (1,2,and 3) for a whole day, they put a sticker next to their name on the sticker chart. When they have 10 stickers next to their name, they can chose to either: get something out of the prize box or receive a “no homework pass” (they can’t get more than 3 a quarter).Rewards & Consequences
The Zone Chart
Zone 1: Excellent behavior!
Zone 2: Warning!
Zone 3:The Quiet Corner
Zone 4: Loss of sticker on chart
Zone 5: No recess
Zone 6: Call home
Zone 7: Meeting with me, the student, the students parents, and the principle.
Routines & Procedures
Passing out papers: I will choose 2-4 random students (or volunteers) to help me pass out papers.
The Restroom: Elementary schools have bathrooms in the classroom, but my students will use a sign in/out sheet.
Getting Supplies/Books: I will say, “ Who ever have the longest hair (etc.) come get this for your team.”
Dismissal: The last 5 minutes of the day they can do whatever they want (as long as it isn’t bad of course).
Turning In Work: There will be 2 color-coded bins on my supplies table where they will turn in work (labeled homework and classwork).
Attendance: I will check their seating chart. If I am unsure if a student is here, I’ll just say, “Is so-and-so here?”.
Sharpening Pencils: They will sharpen their pencils when I’m not actively teaching (I will have pencils to lend to them).
