*Our classroom is based on community and teamwork. It is essential that students learn to work together and get along. Second graders are expected to treat all members of our school family with kindness and respect. Bullying (hitting, name-calling, fighting, making fun of others, etc.) will not be tolerated in our classroom.
*In our classroom, I strive to teach the students about responsibility. Students will be responsible for having their work completed and turned in on time. They will also be encouraged to ask questions if they do not understand something.
*Students will be expected to do all of their work to the best of their ability. If an assignment or project is rushed through, the student will have to redo the assignment. Second graders tend to "rush through" assignments to be the first one done. We work hard in our classroom to really take our time and do our best on all activities, and to learn that all of us learn and complete things at different rates.
Classroom Values This is a class that shows kindness. This is a class that dares to be bold. This is a class that laughs daily. This is a class that thinks critically. This is a class that works hard. This is a class that learns from our mistakes. This is a class that gives generously. This is a class that shares selflessly. This is a class that respects others. This is a class that cares deeply. This is who we are.
Rewards & Consequences In our classroom, I strive to focus on POSITIVE behaviors. Therefore, consequences for negative student behaviors will be handled on an individual basis and will pertain directly to the situations that may occur. Parents will be notified in these cases.
Students can earn Devil Dollars from any staff member for being a Dependable Devil! They can save them and purchase rewards or turn them in for a weekly drawing.
