First, let me say I am SO excited for this school year!
Come to class prepared
Participate in all discussions and activities
The computers are wonderful and fantastic... but do not have them out unless you are told.
You sitting at my desk makes me feel like this --------------->
No sidebar conversations, or I will look at you like ----->
Class starts when the bell rings. If you are not in your seat with your materials out, you will be considered tardy.
Make sure you are ready to begin.
No cell phones... I'm making it my goal to take a cell phone a month away... don't let it be yours.
Put your name on EVERY assignment!!
Yes, you have to write in complete sentences
Listen carefully to directions... or this will be my reaction to your questions...
Don't even ask about extra credit... it doesn't exist.
Seriously, do your reading homework...
I don't care how excited you are about your snacks, you can NOT eat in my classroom.
You've known about the assignment all week and you're asking me for an extension 3 minutes before its due?
I have no problem giving extensions, but don't come at me at the beginning of class asking for one.
If you pack up before the bell rings and line up at the door, I will make you go back to your seat...
Get excited to read and write... A LOT!!!
Most importantly, RESPECT the things, people, and ideas in this classroom. Respect yourself enough to get a good education Respect others enough to not interfere with their education Respect the things made available to you in this classroom
