Classroom Policies


Your child’s nightly homework will consist of…           

  1. Read for at least 15 minutes
  2. Practice spelling words
  3. Study math facts for fact fluency
  4. Assignments not completed in class that are brought home in your child’s homework folder must be brought back the next day

In addition to this:

  1. Spelling assignment on Monday nights.  This assignment will work on spelling skills covered in class.  This assignment is due back Wednesday.  
  2. A Math assignment will go home on Wednesday nights. The assignment will review our current standard being covered that week.  This assignment is due by Friday.

Discipline Plan

We are using a new school-wide discipline plan.  Please see our school link to learn more about our expected behaviors.  In our room, as students earn tickets for our school-wide plan, they will earn a ClassDojo point.  Be sure to sign up on to see how your child is doing!  They will also keep a record in their homework folder of their points.  Once students reach their goal, they will earn a coupon for a variety of things like prize box choice, no shoe day, lunch with the teacher, etc.  


We are scheduled to eat lunch at 11:45-12:20 daily.  Please feel free to join your child for lunch at any time.  Also, don’t forget to sign in at the office when you come up!  We ask that you NOT bring in outside fast food, but feel free to bring your own sack lunch or eat a school lunch.  


If you want to bring snacks for the class for any reason (birthday celebration, holiday treat, etc.) please be aware of the OPS policy that states that only unopened store purchased food products can be passed out to the students.   Please also be sensitive to products containing peanuts.  No home baked goods are allowed.  Also, to align with our emphasis on healthy living at Saddlebrook, and to lessen the distractions, the PTA has voted and agreed to limit the birthday celebrations.  Students are more than welcome to bring treats as long as they are healthy-cupcakes, cookies, donuts, or other unhealthy items will now be sent back home with the student who brought them.  Non-food treats, such as pencils or stickers that can be sent home with classmates are also an option.  Ideas for healthy snacks could be items like crackers, fruit snacks, string cheese, yogurt, etc.  Birthday treats should only be brought to share with the class.  

We will have snack time daily in the mornings.  Your child must bring their snack from home and it should also align with the healthy snack policy mentioned above.  Snacks will not be shared and I will not be providing a snack for any students who have forgotten theirs that day.  

Class Rules

In my classroom, I work hard to promote an environment of respect.  Therefore, our class rule is this:

I will treat others the way I want to be treated.

I will respect others,

including my peers, teachers, and visitors.

I will respect things,

including classroom and school furniture and supplies.

I will respect myself!
