when you return from an absence. Two days per absent day is given to make up

work. Anything past this time will be taken as late work. If you were absent

the teacher during the last 5 minutes of class. Tests and quizzes can be
made up before school or during lunch and only if an appointment has
been made.
b. E-mail or Weebly Assignments
If you have access to the Internet at home you may E-mail the teacher at:
Minna_Kim@scps.k12.fl.us Be sure to include your full name, class period, and
date(s) you were absent in the email. Classwork and homework will usually be
posted on Mrs. Isimingers Weebly as well: www.isiminger.weebly.com
V. Turning in Assignments
The teacher will collect homework, group work, or individual work at random. You will
turn in any requested work only when the teacher asks for them. All assignments
must have your full name, class period, and date on the top right margin of your
papers. No name = No grade.
VI.

Extra Credit Assignments


Extra credit is not given if regularly assigned work has not been fully completed with
full effort. Extra credit is designed to help students who have made their best
attempts, put in 100% effort, and are on the cusp of the next letter grade up. The
teacher will announce extra credit opportunities throughout the grading period.

VII.

Getting Your Attention


a. There will be times when I need the whole classs full attention so that I may
give directions, explanations, answer group questions, etc. or if the noise level
gets too loud. When the teacher needs everyone to stop talking, stop what they
are doing, and pay attention:
1. The teacher will say, Class, make ____ a number will be inserted into
the blank. Example: Class, make 18
2. The teacher will hold up a certain number of fingers. Example: 3 fingers
3. When steps 1 and 2 are done by the teacher, students are to:
i.
Stop talking and stop the task you were working on.
ii.
Turn to face the teacher.
iii. Hold up the value that would give the solution using fingers/hands.
This procedure should take us no more than 15 seconds.

VIII. Procedure for the End of Class and Class Dismissal


a. Students are not to begin packing up/preparing for dismissal until the teacher
has indicated. The TEACHER dismisses you from class NOT the bell. Attempts
to pack up and leave without the teachers consent will result in delayed
dismissal. When told to pack up:
1. Clean up your area even if it is not your mess.
2. Straighten up the desk so they are lined up with each other.
3. Put away all materials used that day.

4. Throw away any garbage.

classroom rules and procedures. Do not talk to the visitor unless he/she is talking
to your directly. Be polite. Continue working on your assignment as usual.

Classroom Rules
a. Classroom Rules are posted. The following is a review of each rule and its
meaning.
1. Be prompt: come to class on time and complete and turn in work in a
timely manner.
2. Be prepared: have all your materials and due assignments ready and an
open mindset ready to learn.
3. Be productive: utilize every minute of class to achieve learning by
staying on task and working deliberately.
4. Be polite: keep negative in and let positive out, actively listen to the
speaker and remember that disagreeing with someones opinion does
not mean you must be disagreeable, and respect yourself, your
classmates, your teacher, and everyones possessions.

5. Be positive: you will need to take risks and possibly make mistakes but
dont let failure and mistakes pull you down, theyre the best way to
learn something well that will last in your brain. Believe in yourself and
in others.
XIII. Consequences
a. Everything we do in life has consequences be they positive or negative. If you
eat a dozen doughnuts in one sitting your mouth will be happy- the positive
consequence, but your stomach will hurt afterward- the negative consequence.
You must accept the consequences that come with your choices and actions you
make. In this class there are both positive and negative consequences in place.
Positive Consequences:
1. Get acknowledged by your classmates or the teacher.
2. Receive good grades.
3. Get random surprises or special privileges by the teacher.
4. Get tickets, which you can use to trade in for SWAG.
Negative Consequences:
1. Loss of privileges.
2. Grades drop.
3. Loss of working with partner/group.
4. Parents are contacted.
5. You lose tickets, which means less SWAG.
6. School policy/procedures on behavior will be followed.
XIV. Tracking Your Behavior
a. Negative behaviors will be tracked on a seating chart. If the same negative
behaviors keep occurring the teacher will:
1. Notify you of the reoccurring negative behavior. A consequence may be
given.
2. Conference with you to discuss what, why, how to address this negative
behavior and eliminate it from reoccurring.
3. Following up with reinforcement. Again, consequences may be given.
4. Post-conferencing with you to celebrate positive strides youve taken to
improve your behaviors.
Students who purposely and consciously chose to act inappropriately and make
deliberate poor choices in class will not be tolerated. The teacher is supportive
and understanding but there are limits and students are expected to be positive
members of the class and to follow class rules and procedures.
