What to do If your Students "Don't"...
If a student is not following a rule… What not to do:
Warn the student to follow the rule after he or she has already broken it.
Allow your anger or frustration level to determine the consequence
Make up the rules as you go
What to do:
Announce to the student that because he/she chose to break the rule, a consequence will be given
Be consistent with your rules and consequences
Ensure that the rules are posted, and that the rules and consequences were discussed before any student had a chance to break the rules.
If a student is not following a procedure… What not to do:
Beg or plead
Resort to empty threats
Punish the student for not following a procedure
Ignore the fact that the student is not following a procedure
Be inconsistent with procedures
What to do:
Remind the student or have the student remind you of the procedure
Practice the procedure with the student
Hold private practice sessions if necessary
Make the procedure a rule for that student if the problem is chronic

Google Maps feature
First go to the app.
Type in a city such as Boston, New York City, or San Francisco.
Once you click on the city you have different options. Click on "fly over tour" and it begins all on its own.
Think how great of a "hook" this would be for students as they read about land forms, cities, or places in literature.
Keep focused on our Standards
All purchasing needs to be done by Thursday, December 10.
This will ensure all transactions will be posted by the Visa cut off the following Tuesday, December 15. This will give you a full day to have completed your expense re-port and get it, along with your receipts, submitted to Terry no later than Thursday Dec. 17. This timeline will be important due to the fact that the school report must be completed by Friday, December 18.
Thank you for your help on this.
Remember, your cards should all be turned in to Terry when you are not using them.
