Our Classroom Rules
Students are expected to stay seated during mini-lessons, during centers, and during independent work. Flexible seating is available in the classroom if they do not want to stay seated at their desks. Students are expected to walk indoors.
At Decker Elementary we have voice level rules that are as follows.
Level 0 = Silence (During Testing and instructional times)
Level 1 = Whisper (During quiet time, or independent work)
Level 2 = Loud enough for the person next to you to hear (While working with others in class, and eating in the cafeteria. )
Level 3 = Loud enough for the room to hear (public speaking)
Level 4 = shouting (Outside on the playground)
Students will be allowed to go to the restroom two at a time during center’s time. We will take a whole group restroom break before specials, and before/after lunch. Students are not allowed to leave the room during testing times and lessons unless it is an emergency.
Students who follow these expectations consistently will be rewarded with:
Dolphin Tickets for Dolphin Depot
Treasure chest prizes
Students who choose not to follow the expectations will receive:
Strikes ( 3 = a referral to the principal’s office)
Walk laps at recess
Homework is expected to be completed every night. I check for it in binders every morning. Homework is worth 10% of a student's overall grade. If a student completes their homework and turns it in at any point during the most current grading period, it will be entered as a 100 in the grade book. Homework that is not turned in will be entered as a 50 in the grade book.
