The design process for my classroom grows out of the basic question: What do I want my students to take away from this day?Learning Objectives: Content knowledge (what do I want students to know?)Skills (what do I want students to be able to do with what theyknow?)Values (what do I want students to care about?)
Classroom Expectations--Develop Self-Responsible Behavior, Knowledge, and SkillsHaving adopted four universals for our school, our classroom expectations will be built upon the foundation of the 3R'S (respectful, responsible, ready to learn and safe). Students will be involved in creating a list of words, actions, and attitudes that reflect the 3R'SRespect is the "anchor rule" in my classroom. As we practice the 8 Keys to Success we will become individuals who have, and show, respect for one another.8 Keys to Success1. Have integrity2. Learn from mistakes3. Speak with good purpose4. This is it! - Make the most of every moment5. Be committed6. Take responsibility for your actions7. Be flexible8. Balance - live your best lifeWe will practice THINKing before we speak.
Classroom Management ProcedureStudents will receive either positive or negative consequences as a result of their words, behaviors, attitudes and and actions. To minimize classroom disruptions, I will incorporate Love and Logic principles in my classroom. My goal is to show empathy to the children while setting limits with enforceable statements, sharing control through lots of small choices, building positivie reciprocal relationships and handing out consequences.What To Expect From MeI feel it is my responsibility to be motivated in my attitudes and actions. I am here to orchestrate learning and manage states of learning in the classroom. I believe I am to teach to the best of my ability while delivering gems (positives) and opportunities (corrections) to the kids. You can expect a structured class that encourages each student to do their own personal best.My motto: Good, better, bestNever let it restUntil your good is betterAnd your better is your best.My goal is to get to know each student well in order to accommodate the students' different learning styles. Lastly, and most importantly, you can expect me to have your child's best interest at heart.
