Daily Procedures

Entering the room:

-Find your seat and read the daily agenda on the board.  Take out any materials that are listed in the agenda.

-Begin the Bellringer assignment.  Bellringer assignments will be turned-in each Friday and graded.  

*Should you need to sharpen a pencil, throw something away, or otherwise leave your seat, now is the time to do it.*

If you are out of your seat when the tardy bell rings, you may receive a tardy.  

-Respect the teacher/other students. For the entire class, not just during the Bellringer. :)

Class Instruction

-Raise your hand to speak/leave your desk.  You must notify me prior to leaving your seat. Please do not leave your seat during instruction.

-After the Bellringer is complete, we will review homework and I will collect your assignment.  

-When using an iPad, you must remain in the app that is being used for class instruction.  Although I have, and use, the ability to restrict access to only the apps needed for instruction; accessing non-instructional apps during a lesson will result in a consequence.

-Complete all of the work that is assigned in class.  If you need help, always ask. I am here to help.

Homework

-The purpose of homework  is to deepen your understanding of concepts that we cover during class time.

-Complete your homework in a timely manner and turn it in on the date it is due.
