Classroom Rules and Procedures
Class Procedures and Expectations
1. Entering the room: Enter orderly and excited ready to learn. Sit in assigned seats and follow the directions on the board.

2. Lining up: Follow the directions of the teacher. Face the door and exit quietly, in the order you are standing. Students will meet their teacher at the door and prepare to use hallway expectations.

3. Participating in group lessons: Do not bring anything with you unless I ask you to; always give your best practice for performance;  listen carefully for new information; raise your hand to speak; do not speak when someone else is speaking.

4. When and how to use the school restroom: We have a code to signal for the restroom (crossed fingers). I will point to you to signal my permission, so that group lesson is not interrupted.  If I say "no," it’s because there are too many students out of the room; leave the room quietly; do not play in the restroom; return to class before two minutes have passed (promptly). One boy and one girl, at most,  are out of the room at a time. If there is a bathroom emergency, always go, no matter what.

5.  When and how to use the pencil sharpener: At the beginning of each assignment, the person I've chosen to be the "Pencil Sharpener"; only the "Pencil Sharpener" can run the sharpener and empty it.

6. Getting a tissue: You may get a tissue from the closest tissue box whenever you need one; just raise  your hand  and ask; throw the used tissue away immediately; make sure it lands in the trash can; get right back to work your  position. 
7. Visitors in the classroom: When visitors enter the room, let the designated classroom "host" or "hostess" greet them; a smile is great!; remember, most visitors are here to watch you learn, so be ready to explain what you are working on; treat visitors respectfully.

8. Fire drill: Stop everything; stand up and lineup, just like when we exit the room. Our “host or hostess” will grab or emergency card, then join the back of the line. You should be facing the front, silently, so that we may hear any directions given to us on the intercom. We will proceed through the back door. We are the closest to an exit, which means we need to be out of the school before other classes or we will be blocked in. Any student who does not follow these directions during a fire drill Will receive a write up.

9. Signals for attention:  When I need your attention, I will clap my hands followed by the statement, “Listen to the room”; as soon as you hear the signal, stop what you are doing, look at me, and listen for directions.

10. Helping other students: In a cooperative classroom, it is good to help one another; if someone needs help with directions or reading an assignment, help him or her if you are able; if someone needs help with understanding the problem, tell him or her to ask me for help; never put down another student who asks for help.

11. Buddy room/ Safe seat/Restorative Justice: Students should NEVER feel in unwanted, unsafe or in trouble, if they stay in my room. Students have options in room my room for recovery. Student can complete reflection sheet, or creates a comic to walk through an alternative situation. We should only use these places once per class for only the time we need to recover. Students should return as soon as they are ready. If they do not return, teacher will check on them, and encourage them to return quickly. If student does not take advantage of these tasks they will be sent to a buddy room. Only at last resort they will be sent to the office.
