Behavior expectations and classroom incentives
All students can behave appropriately in a classroom. No student should prevent a teacher from teaching or any other student from learning. My goal is to focus on the positive and make sure students are rewarded. Students will be expected to follow directions the first time they are given, arrive on time and be prepared, and respect others, as well as class materials. Students who behave inappropriately will lose privileges. If I am having repeated behavioral issues in class, I will contact parents or guardians prior to assigning extreme consequences, such as detention.
Students in my classroom will be earning Mario bucks. They will be able to deposit their class cash into the 6th-grade online bank (there is a link to the login on my website.) They can use their class cash to buy things from the class store and sixth-grade auction at the end of each term.
