I have developed a classroom management plan that allows each student the opportunity to manage his/her behavior and meet the goals of Mayfield Intermediate School’s Mission Statement.
To engage every child in quality educational experiences in a
community that expects maximum personal achievement.
1. Come to class prepared to work and follow directions.
2. Be in assigned seat and ready to work when the bell rings.
3. Take responsibility for your own learning and do your very best…..ALWAYS!
4. Be polite and demonstrate respect for others and treat them with kindness.
5. Show respect for property and help to care for our classroom and our school.
6. Raise your hand to speak and listen when others are speaking.
7. Obey all school rules in the Student Code of Conduct, as well as the Mayfield Intermediate School-Wide Rules posted in every classroom.
8. At the close of class, leave work area in an orderly fashion for the next class.
If a student fails to follow the rules or established procedures:
1. I will give a non-verbal or verbal warning to the student(s) indicating the action(s) that was not appropriate.
2. I will give a second warning to the student(s) indicating the action(s) that was not appropriate and give the student a checkmark for inappropriate behavior.
3. Three checkmarks during a one week period (5 actual class days) will result in the student completing a reflective statement and I will notify the parent/guardian.
4. For severe disruption/disrespect, I will immediately refer the student to a building administrator and/or guidance counselor and the student will receive a discipline referral.
To encourage students to meet the classroom expectations and finish all assignments, I will reinforce appropriate behavior with both individual and group rewards. This includes an opportunity to enjoy free time to read after assignments are completed, periodic free time on the computer to access instructional activities (i.e. internet sites/games related to content), verbal praise as I walk around the classroom monitoring students, stickers, candy, and playing music while students are keying.
