Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to Miss Jandacek’s third grade class! I am delighted to be your child’s teacher for the year and have many exciting activities planned for the coming months. In order for our classroom to run smoothly and efficiently during these activities, students will be expected to follow our classroom rules:
- Respect others and their property.
- Take responsibility for your actions.
- Come prepared to class. Do your homework!
- Listen to directions. Follow them the first time they are given.
Room 12 uses Class Dojo for our classroom management system. Class Dojo is a web-based management program that allows me to set goals for all students individually and for our class as a whole. I can also track individual and class progress towards meeting goals. This is a wonderful tool to maintain communication with me and stay part of our classroom! I look forward to the rewards the students will earn while they enjoy learning in our classroom. Points will be reset on Monday mornings every week. Students will work to earn a mystery motivator “reward” on Friday. By meeting the weekly point goal, students can earn mystery motivator incentives such as extra recess, shoes off in the classroom, bring a stuffed animal to school, etc. We will celebrate with a bigger reward when the class goal is met. The behaviors that we will focus on are aligned to the “CHAMPS” behavioral expectations.
If one of the behavioral expectations are not met, students will face our classroom consequences. If one Dojo point is lost in a day, the child is removed from the group/activity and asked to work independently. If more than one Dojo point is lost in a day, a student/teacher conference will take place, and the child will be my “shadow” during our Friday Reward Recess instead of playing with friends. If a child exhibits physical, violent, and/or bullying behavior, he/she will be sent to the office to discuss the matter with Dr. Hall.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at (815) 485-2115, Ext. 6241, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Email is preferred.) Once again, I am excited about working with your children. I welcome questions or comments and am looking forward to a great year!
Miss Jill Jandacek
