QUIZLET LINK below:
This year I will be visiting your child in their regular classroom to instruct them in Integrated Curriculum. In order to make our classroom safe and fun, I will ask the students to follow these rules:
1. Be prepared and listen to the directions the first time they are given.
2. Raise your hand and wait for permission to speak.
3. Ask for permission to leave your seat or the room.
4. Keep your hands, feet and objects to your self.
5. Be polite and kind. Show respect for everyone and everything in the room.
I will follow the consequences that are used by your child's classroom teacher and I will call you if I have any concerns.
The students will be rewarded for following the rules with praise from the teacher, a positive report to their regular teacher, a note or a call home or a "Sit with a Buddy" pass.
My goal is to create the best possible learning environment for your child and all the students in their classroom. One boy and one girl may be excused at a time to use the bathroom, drinks of water should be done before or after class and pencils may be sharpened during the first few minutes of the class. A special pass will be given if the child needs to go to the nurse.
We do a variety of activities during the period, therefore the students need to look and listen for the "Give me 5" command. This alerts the students that we are going to change activities and they will receive new directions.
Student Evaluation and Assessment
There are many ways to assess learning. For grades Kindergarten to 4th Grade we use the system of: "O" for Outstanding "S" for Satisfactory "N" for Needs Improvement "U" for Unsatisfactory For the IC program we use the rubric which is a scoring tool that lists specific criteria student's must meet in order to achieve a certain grade. When we evaluate a student we look for following directions, teamwork, creative thinking, etc. All of these are very important!
