Classroom Behavior Expectations

2016-2017  Class Mission Statement:   As a Fifth Grade Class, we are Peace Builders.  We will show integrity, and be independent thinkers.  We will work cooperatively and use communication strategies.  We will face challenges with creativity and critical thinking.  Through synthesization of our mission statement, we will be epic 5th Graders!

Presentation Tutorials:


School Behavior Expectations:   SOAR behaviors (Safe, Organized, achieve, respect and responsible)

 Attitudes of Learning:  creativity, empathy, independence, cooperation, appreciation, curiosity, integrity, commitment, confidence, respect, tolerance and enthusiasm.



    During our first few weeks together, we develop a mission statement and a set of guidelines for appropriate classroom behavior.  We will be working on developing a sense of community.  We will experience activities to help us practice thinking critically and creatively, learn how to communicate effectively and work collaboratively.  These activities will help us to write Mission Statement and agree to our consequences when we do not uphold our agreements in the mission statement.

We will use a clip chart to help us modify behavior.  Students have the opportunity to move their clips up from Ready to Learn, to Good Day, Great Job and Outstanding.  Students will bring home a note when they have had such a good day that they reached "outstanding".  If they go above and beyond outstanding, they get to decorate their clip.  Likewise, on days that are not so good, students may move their clip from Ready to Learn, down to Think About It (5 minutes of recess), Teacher's Choice, or to Parent contact.  You will be notified with a Time Out slip, or receive an email from your child at Parent Contact.  This level may also result in a visit to the principal's office if your child goes to this level repeatedly.

We will also be continuing a school wide program called "Second Step".  This program helps children with empathy, impulse control and conflict resolution. 

Each day is a new day.  We start with a clean slate.
