Classroom Procedures and Expectations

8th Grade Math Supplies: *pencils *loose leaf paper *binder *

Math Policies: In order for students to get the most out of their time in the classroom, it is very important for students to follow the procedures listed below.

Tardy: You need to be in the room when the bell rings. If you are not, you will receive a tardy. This is a school wide policy.

Tones and Bells: When the tone or bell rings at the end of the period, remain seated. You will be dismissed by me.

Bathroom: The last ten minutes of class will be available for students to take a restroom or drink break.  You will need to sign out on the clipboard and take the pass with you.

Attention Grabber: If you are working in groups or teams and you hear the bell, you should immediately stop talking and look at me for directions or instruction. Students who continue to talk after the bell rings will receive a warning in the behavior management plan.

Teacher Instruction: If I am talking, you should be sitting quietly, LISTENING. I will tell you when it is time to work together.

Student Responsibilities: When working with a team, you should always do your part and participate in the activity. You should be helpful and respectful to your peers and your teacher.

Entering Room: You are not to enter the room unless a teacher is inside.

Collecting Homework: When an assignment is collected, please make sure your name and date is noted in the upper right hand corner of the paper. Then place your paper in the designated drawer for your class. I will then collect the papers.

Preparation: Please make sure you come to class with all necessary materials (binders, pencils, paper, and math booklet pages). If you are missing any supplies, please check with a friend or the supply tub before asking me.
