Our classroom rules come from the Whole Brain Teaching method. Whole Brain Teaching is a research based approach to classroom instruction that is designed to promote increased student engagement by incorporating instructional strategies that allow students to use all areas of their brain during class time.
Rule #1: Follow directions quickly Rule #2: Raise your hand for permission to speak Rule #3: Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat Rule #4: Make smart choices Rule #5: Keep your dear teacher happy
Choosing to break classroom rules will have the following consequences:
First time: verbal warning Second time: consequence depends on the situation- apology letter, reflection form, etc. Third time: consequence, parent contact Fourth time: varies based on the circumstances (referral, principal visit, behavior contract, etc.)
Second graders shouldn't be spending more than 20 minutes a night on homework. Please let me know if your child is having a difficult time completing our nightly assignments. Math: Quick Check Reading: 10-15 minutes
