Happy 2018 Parents and Students! Welcome to Mrs. Johnson's 6th grade ELA website. This website will serve as a away for parents and students to get information on upcoming homework assignments and projects. However, it is still the students responsibility to be writing homework assignments in their agendas as assigned.
Homework will be assigned 2-3 times a week. Homework will be graded as a participation grade based on completion not correctness. Any days in which paper homework is not assigned, students should be reviewing class notes and vocabulary words. Students should also spend at least 10-15 minutes a day reading from their library books. Daily reading is critical to building student comprehension and vocabulary skills. Click the Homework tab above for upcoming assigments.
Classroom Rules & Expectations
Respect: Yourself, your teacher & your classmates.
Raise: Your hand, your confidence, your expectations
Follow: Teacher’s instructions, classroom procedures and all school rules
Be: Prompt & Prepared & Positive
Class Procedures and Expectations:
Students should come prepared each day with the appropriate school supplies. This includes SHARPENED pencils and paper. Students will receive 8 restroom passes at the beginning of the nine weeks. These passes are for emergencies only. Once a students is out of passes, he or she will no longer be allowed to leave the classroom for the restroom (unless the student has a doctor's note.)
6th grade is a big transtition for students. I will constantly reinforce rules and procedures for them. Consequences for continuing to break school/classroom rules will be as follows:
Level 1: Reminder of Rule
Level 2: Warning
Level 3: Lunch Detention/Punish Work
Level 4: Phone Call Home and/or Behavior Report
Level 5: After School Detention
Level 6: Referral to Dean of Students
