Friendly Reminders

  • Sub Tubs- please make sure that your sub tub is up to date and in Mrs. Matthews office!
  • Covering your duty- Please make sure that if you are going to be out for any reason that you get a teammate to cover your duty!
  • Grades- 1 per week- Please make sure that you are putting at least one grade per week into INOW.
  • Do Now- Please make sure that your Do Now is text based, has 3 levels of questions and that it is timed. Do Now- 1st 10 minutes of class.
  • 90 Minutes of instruction- Please make sure that you are planning 90 minutes of Bell to Bell instruction. It is always better to over plan. Ask yourself these questions when planning a lesson...
  • What do I want my students to know and be able to do? How will I know if they have learned it? How will I know if they have not learned it? What am I going to do if they did learn it? What am I going to do if they didn't learn it? What am I going to do if some students finish early? Students should ALWAYS have something to do!!!
  • Class One Offenses- Please make sure that you are calling parents, talking to students, clearly stating your expectations, and documenting what you do to redirect the student. All of this helps immensley if a student needs further assistance from an administrator.
  • Positive PAWS- Please don't forget to sign and make a note on student's green cards. Thank you!
