If a child is absent, they need to get make-up work in as soon as possible. I will allow them to have one make up day for each day they are absent. (I.E. If they are absent for 2 days, they will need to turn in all make up work by the second day). If the work is not turned in, they will begin to lose points. If the papers are still missing at the end of the nine weeks, it will automatically turn into a zero.
All students are given planners and binders at the beginning of the year. I expect their planners to be initialed every night and returned the next day. This planner tells you what homework they have, special announcements, and their behavior for the day. Your child is responsible for this planner the entire school year. Please make sure your child does not lose their planner.
For every compliment the class receives as a whole they will receive a bee in the hive. After 25 compliments the class will receive a reward. This reward promotes teamwork and cooperation amongst the students. At the end of each day, if the entire class behaved well, followed instructions, walked in line quietly, and was on task, a bee will be put on the classroom hive. This reward will also reflect compliments from other teachers, administration, and visitors to our school and classroom. Rewards will be voted on as a class (ex: movie and popcorn, extra recess, make a craft, etc…)
Your child will be given homework Monday through Friday. You child will be responsible for: writing down assignments in their planner, remembering to bring homework home, completing homework and returning homework to school the next day. If your child does not have his/her homework, then your child may miss part or all of centers or recess the next day to finish any assignments.
