Sub Plans:




Thank you for coming in for me today.  This is a great group who are willing to help in any way.  If there are any challenges, please hold them accountable when necessary.  Leave me a note about any student who was helpful or one that was disruptive.  There is a 3 strike and you're out policy.  If a student receives 3 strikes (verbal warnings from you) for any offense, they are to take their work and go next door to Mrs. VanSoest's room (next door) until the end of the session.


I have an aide whose name is Carol.  She is terrific and knows all the students, as well as my routine and computer cliches.  Feel free to ask her about or for anything.  Mrs. VanSoest is the 5th-6th grade teacher next door and will be helpful with whatever else you might need.


I incorporate a positive reward system in the class that works great:

  • Attention: "Ladies and Gentlemen," then begin a non-verbal 5 finger count down for attention
  • On task behavior is rewarded by telling them, "Thank you, give yourself a pat on the back"

  • Whole group on task behavior is rewarded by telling Rachel to put a handful of beans in the jar

  • Quick, on task, and quiet transitions is rewarded with another handful of beans in the jar


Students can go to the bathroom one at a time.  They are very good and rarely mis-use this privilege.


Helpful students: Rachel, Stephanie, Nicole, Austin
