RULES AND PROCEDURES
I am so excited to start a new school year! I have many wonderful things planned and I know your child will love being a first grader! I will be using a simple behavior management strategy for promoting positive behavior called the THE CLIP CHART. Students will have a clip with their name on it. Everyone's clip starts on READY TO LEARN each day. As the day goes on, if your child is "caught being good", they can move their clip up to GOOD WORK and GREAT EFFORT. If their behavior is inappropriate. your child will move their clip down to SLOW DOWN, THINK ABOUT IT, or, OH, NO STOP! The consequences are a simple reminder and re-direction to positive behavior, loss of 5 minutes of recess, parent contact home and if these fail, there will be additional assistant from Mrs. Dornon.
Our classrooom rules are simple and easy to remember and are re-inforced on a daily basis. The rule are:
1. Listen to your teacher.
2. Follow directions quickly.
3. Make good choices.
4. Be patient and kind.
5. Always do your best work.
I hope that first grade will be a fun and enjoyable learning experience for your child!
